    (I still don't trust my VIA 686B southbridge 100%, even with the PCI latency BIOS settings tweaked to fix the IDE transfer bugs...of course, it probably doesn't help that the PCI bus is running at 37 MHz instead of 33 ).

    What are the view settings set to for that folder, Eric?

    I've found XP tends to want to view certain folders in thumbnail mode, even though I have it set to open all folders in Detail mode by default.

    There's no real rhyme or reason to it, either. Probably related to some background system management process losing synch, and there's probably some deeper default that XP uses when it can't find a match in the current profile in time...or maybe file corruption (I still don't trust my VIA 686B southbridge 100%, even with the PCI latency BIOS settings tweaked to fix the IDE transfer bugs...of course, it probably doesn't help that the PCI bus is running at 37 MHz instead of 33 [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]).

    I don't know... My problems only occur in one project, but others that work fine are loaded with images that don't crash AMS.

    Issues with Windows Explorer thumbnail view are often resolved by running the Internet Explorer Repair Tool. Not sure where it is under XP but under Win9x it can be found under Control Panel - Add/Remove Software - Microsoft Internet Explorer x.x and Internet Tools - Add/Remove - Repair Internet Explorer.

    Re: Images folder Bug

    Ok, well ummm, my File associations... you mean which extensions are set to which program?

    ALL image extensions are set to Photoshop, except .BMP - which is set to Paint.

    As for programs running in the background... Seriously... Sygate Firewall, but that's about all that's actually running.

    Here's my processes:



    I've also closed whatever program was running there, and still get the Error when i try to view those images folders:

    07...seriously, check what your image file associations are set to.

    Also, it wouldn't hurt to scrutinize the list of tasks in your task bar, and the list of services that you have running.

    Obviously we've done a lot of opening folders with images in them that AutoPlay has used here. (Even poor Adam who was chained to his desk during the beta, generating the wildest projects you could hope to imagine, never encountered this problem, and his system is literally held together with the operating system equivalent of duct tape...if anything ever goes wrong, it usually happens on his machine first.)

    Re: Images folder Bug

    Q) Is AutoPlay running when this happens?
    A) It happens when it's running, and when it's not running (not a factor)

    Q) Did you reformat before you reinstalled XP?
    A) Yes. Don't forget, others are reporting this as well.

    Q) Is there anything else running in the background?
    A) yah, of course.. if yah wanna look at it that way... Sygate Personal Firewall Pro 5.0 (I can;t see it being a problem)

    Q) What are your image file associations set to?
    A) It doesn't matter. Some folders may have Gifs, some may have Jpgs, some may have both... ALL times it crashes.

    Q) Does this happen when AutoPlay is uninstalled?
    A) I guess I could try that right now... might be a bit of a hastle. Of course you may have to think in terms that AMS might have infected the files and removing AMS may not do anything.

    Q) Before it's ever installed?
    A) Well of course not! I'd have to have AMS installed to make projects... which would lead to having images for them, etc.
    As for this ever happening.. ever... No, never happened before. (for any program, etc)

    Q) Does it happen if the project folders have no files in them?
    A) No, only when there's images in them. If the folder has no image(s) in it, it loads fine. (as you should have seen in the Screenshots)

    Q) Does it still happen if you rename the Images folder to something else first?
    A) I *could* do that, but them none of my projects would work. I figure it doesn't matter, because in my Distribution folder, I had a folder named "Download" and in that folder was 2 images... every time I try to open that folder (like the Images one in the Screenshots you saw) the same thing happens.

    Q) ...thanks for answering some of my questions. (Especially, whether you were doing this from inside AutoPlay, e.g. using the My Computer Bar.)
    A) well, the same thing happens there. If I were to browse folders with images in it (in the AMS Projects Directory), That program would crash, rather than Explorer.
    Look at those screenshots... and picture me doing it from Photoshop. Once the images would load, Photoshop would crash. This goes for ANY and EVERY program. Let's just say folders with images in them located in the AMS Directory are UNACCESSABLE. Period. Whatever program I use to browse those directories.. crashes, Explorer, Photoshop, AMS, you name it.

    C) Grrr. I wrote a lengthy reply but it was all lost in yet another RoboHELP crash.
    R) ****, gotta HATE that!
