    App Error requires Shockwave Player 11?

      Hello,
      I made a standard Mac projector and published it. On my desktop all works dandy, however when I burn it to a CD I get this Application Error;
      This application requires Shockwave Player 11, which can not be found. Click on OK to download it.

      First off I'm confused since I chose the Standard projector and Not the Shockwave in the Publishing settings. Second it plays fine until it's burned to a CD.
      Any help would be great!
      Thanks a bunch. :o)>

          Did you exclude xtras? It may be that your projector requires an xtra
          that you didn't bundle into it and this is causing it to throw the
          dialog message.

            From your previous thread I might guess that it's Buddy API cited in
            the dialog? If so, prior to publishing you should go to (menu) Modify ->
            Movie -> Xtras..., add Buddy API to the list and ensure "Include in
            Projector" is checked for it.

              Hello Sean!
              I tried to embed the Buddy API xtra like you suggested but got the same error message. Originally I had the Xtra in an Xtra's folder.
              I know it's just a learning curve I'm having with the Mac and Director 11. LOL
              I wished it was as easy as the PC side of this project.

                Hello Sean,

                So I tried what you suggested and still same issue. So I went and downloaded the Shockwave11 anyway and now I get a new error. The dreaded 'Unable to load movie playlist. Does the INI file exsist? It must contain a section '(Movies)' with an entry 'Movies01=pathname.dir'.

                I know something is missing on the burned CD, I just don't know what.
                I located the INI files and included them with the burn but they aren't recognized. (they are grey'd out on CD) I don't remember having this much difficulty making the transition from Director 9 to 10. Starting to wish I would have stuck with 10 after all these issues.

                Any Ideas?
