    Projector wont publish a file with an "s" in the name

    justforkicks1
      Hello There! I've got a "weird one" for you all...

      When I try to pack a file for publishing, director mx version 10.1 will say that my file named "galaxies.dir" is not a director file and then gives a second error that the file is corrupted. BUT if I remove the 's' from the name of the file, so that it is now called "galaxie.dir", the file can now be added for publishing just fine.

      I know that it can't be a naming limit because I can add a file called "galaxies_database" with no problem at all.

      I would really, really appreciate the help because to have to rename the file would mean I would have to change the links of about 450 references.

      Cheers in 2008*

          That is a weird one. Could you change the name to 'galaxie' before you publish, and then change the file name back to 'galaxies' afterwards?

            Eeeerhmmm....
            Do you have a directory called "galaxies" or something?

            Wasnt there something weird a long time ago that Director had problems
            with a filename if you also had a directory name like it? Without the
            extension probably...?
            Real memory or was it a bad dream?
            I am not sure....
