I have recently started using Captivate to record
demonstrations of the software I work with. I have had to delete it
and re install it after I had an activation error.
Having reinstalled it I find that I am able to record a few
minutes of the demo before running into problems. I find that after
a few minutes into recording, the cursor begins to flicker
repeatedly and the system comes to a stand still thinking what to
do next. This continuously happens every time I start a recording.
I have to twiddle my thumbs for a few minutes before I can get to
task manager ad kill of the program and the service before starting
I use Windows XP running on P4 2.4 GHz with 2.5 GB RAM. My
HDD has two partitions, one which is had no space left and the
other which has plenty and this is the one I have installed
captivate on and have set the working directory for.
I am running out of options on what else to do. Initial setup
of Captivate was without any problems but ever since the reinstall
I have had no enjoy whatsoever.
Saying you have a partition with no space is worrying. I
would try to free up at least 200-500GB of space on that partition
before killing yourself with troubleshooting Captivate issues. Can
you move some files between the partitions to balance the free
It could be that the Windows Pagefile is on the full
partition and is running out of space during the recording, or
Captivate may be trying the use the full partition for a scratch
file... there's any number of things that can happen with a full
drive, some of which you might never expect.
