the quickTimeVersion() command is part of the QT6Asset xtra. Make sure
that you include that xtra with your projector and it should work.

Mike probably pinned down the error, but if you already have the Xtra where
it should be, I'm thinking that the above should read more like this:
if (the DesktopRectList) < rect(0, 0,1024,768) then
Assuming you're only concerned about the primary monitor.

Thanks guys, I'll definetaly have to try adding the QT6Asset xtra. I'm not too optimistic about that though becuase I never added that too the older project folders. I know for sure that when I burnt the old CD's it included just the .exe, the quicktimes, and an autorun...wouldn' t the CD's have needed that file as well? Is there some option I have to check? Is that something included in the .exe or an additional file that needs to be added to the folder?
And the same goes for Mark; the old CD didn't have that addition and it runs fine.
The real problem here (as I see it) is that it works on CD "A". I copy and paste to CD "B" and it doesn't work. Isn't that piece of code written to be versatile?
I opened my old project, re-complied it, and it worked perfectly so I know it's nothing that changed in my PC (like if I got Quicktime 7).
I even grabbed that piece of code and dropped it in a completely empty Director scene and still got the error...
As I last ditch effort could somebody copy that code into a blank scene and see if they get that error?
You can add the xtra into the projector by going to Modify, Movie,
Xtras. Then add that xtra to the list. What may have happened is this:
On your old project that worked, you had added a Quicktime cast member.
When that happens, the xtra gets added automatically. On this new
project you have not added a QT member so it is not in the list. The
xtras are not automatically added if you just use scripting to call on
them, though they are added when you import the media into the cast.
Thanks so much Mike...I appreciate your time.
I was thinking about it last night and I suddenly realized what happens(that Director adds the QT file automatically once you add a QT movie to the cast). I got up this morning and was happy to see you had confirmed my beliefs. Added a random QT movie and it works like a charm.
