both of these programs do not want to run on my computer. i have to reinstall chromanator everytime i want to use it because it only works the first time after i install it. currently the problem im having with it is after the program opens it keep sending these windows again and again:

There has been an internal error and the error log "C:\Documents and Settings
\user1\My Documents\Chromanator Files\20040610122959_errror.txt" has been saved.

Director Player Error:
Property not found #stream

There has been an internal error and the error log "C:\Documents and Settings
\user1\My Documents\Chromanator Files\20040610123236_errror.txt" has been saved.


i also have a common problem when it opens:

one screen that reads, "unable to load movie playlist. does the .INI file exist? it must contain a section '[Movies]' with an entry 'movie01=pathname.dir'."

and then a screen that reads, "this projector is stopping"

and then a screen that reads, "this applications cannot run"


i have downloaded the most recent versions of DirectX and Quicktime Player, but quicktime may not be working because it does not open the player when i tell it to.
I NEED HELP, both of my programs wont work!

Firstly the error file is there for a reason. Post the contents of the file so we can have a look at it and try and help you.

Secondly the fact that QuickTime isn't working could indicate bigger problems with your system.

Thirdly - what is the path you have installed Chromanator and AlamDV2 to?

Well the problem with Chromanator is you are 2 versions out of date. You are trying to run 1.0.3 and the current version is 1.0.5.
