    Re: Images folder Bug

    Forgive my opinion, but if the problem exists when opening the folder/file in Windows Explorer, I fail to see how it can be AMS4 just because the folder happens to be part of a AMS project.
    Additionally, you say nothing else is running, yet you have icons in the systray ... something is running!

    Re: Images folder Bug

    Grrr. I wrote a lengthy reply but it was all lost in yet another RoboHELP crash. I think if someone from ehelp ever visited our office I'd have to secure myself to my desk to avoid leaping over the cubicle walls and strangling them. I'm starting to feel like Milton ("okay, but...that's the last straw...").

    Basically, thanks for answering some of my questions. (Especially, whether you were doing this from inside AutoPlay, e.g. using the My Computer Bar.) Still a couple more questions to go, though: is AutoPlay running when this happens? Did you reformat before you reinstalled XP?

    I had a whole bunch of new questions, too, but I can't remember them all. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] "I could set the place on fire..." (sigh) I'll try...

    Is there anything else running in the background? What are your image file associations set to? Does this happen when AutoPlay is uninstalled? Before it's ever installed? Does it happen if the project folders have no files in them? Does it still happen if you rename the Images folder to something else first?

    The fact that this happens outside of AutoPlay is pretty darn suspicious. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that the old man in Redmond is sitting back and having a laugh at our expense. Windows XP can be a strange beast sometimes.

    Re: Images folder Bug

    I'm really not sure what's so difficult to understand about it!!!!!

    It's simple really. You double-click on a folder in the AMS Projects directory... (say the Images folder in the Resources folder for example), and when the images inside it start to load, Explorer crashes... sheesh!

    Anyway, I made a step by step screenshot page for you guys *slams head against monitor*

    Seriously guys, if you don't understand this after looking at this (and read the captions!), then I seriously give up on this and I'll live with this unbearable bug. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    Did you report this during the beta, btw? I don't recall ever seeing any mention of this issue before
    ... I remember the report. I think Mark questioned it too .. and I did ask for a step by step then but never got it!

    07...I'm afraid I still don't understand exactly what's happening. Can you give detailed, step-by-step instructions that will cause this to happen on your system?

    Did you report this during the beta, btw? I don't recall ever seeing any mention of this issue before.

    I agree that it doesn't sound like a virus in your case, but it's equally unlikely that AMS 4.0 could have that kind of lingering effect on your system. Or does it only happen when AMS 4.0 is actually running? (Please clarify! [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img])

    As for the reinstall...just to make sure we're on the same page, did you reformat and reinstall? Or just reinstall Windows over top of the existing installation (a stability no-no)?

    "Update" here

    Not sure if the name of the folder being "Images" has anything to do with it. Actually, any folder with images in it. Whether it be a mix of JPEG's and GIF's in the distribution folder, or just GIF's, or just JPEG's in the Resources folder. Any folder that has an image, or images in it! [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    (OK ok, here's your answer) This ONLY happens when I'm *trying* to browse folders with images in them that are being used by AMS4. Every other folder with images in Windows is fine... PERFECTLY fine. Like I said, once any image goes into the AMS4 Projects Folder, it's like it gets contaminated [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    This happened through all of the Beta testing. ALSO, another fact:
    This happened before AND after my computer crashed. I was using the Beta, the images problem happened. My computer crashed... had to re-install Windows and everything (we're talking a clean, fresh, brand new start). Then, reinstalled another Beta (new Beta was out at that time). Problem still happened. Basically meaning that whatever "virus" you guys think I might have, I would have had to of had one that would have done something like that in the first place (which I find very weird that anyone would make a virus that would do that... and just to AMS), then, immediately after re-installing Windows, and AMS, etc, I would have then had to have gotten the EXACT same "virus" again.

    Face it... it's your program!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    07...when you say you can't open any folder named "images" without crashing...do you mean solely in AutoPlay Media Studio...or in Windows as well?

    Re: Images folder Bug

    Yeah, it happens on one project that I'm developing too. I can't seem to isolate what is causing it to occur, but it's consistent on that one project - a pretty simple project at that - just web browser window with only one page. Other projects run fine, even one that I converted from 3.0. I'm running Windows 2000.

    lol [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I haven't downloaded much of anything in a long time. Anyway, I highly doubt there's some kind of virus that effects ALL the images folders that are being used by Autoplay Media Studio 4... [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    Images folder Bug

    I have posted this before, and someone else as well.
    I CANNOT open pretty much any folder labelled "images" without Explorer crashing, or the program that was browsing the directory crashing. This happens to both the folder labelled "images" in the Resources section, and one I had labelled "images" in the Distribution folder.

    I'm on Windows XP if that helps...
Working...
