I just installed Dir 11 and created a cross platform CD.
I can open it on my Quad-core Intel Xeon Mac.
It has auto run and opens on a Intel Pentium 4 - PC. And on my Intel laptop PC.
But when I try to open the EXE. file on a circa 2000 Compac PC with Intel Celeron running WIndows ME, I get a little error box that has "?I???Ib?I OK" in it.
Any movies created in Director MX and Director MX2004 work in this old PC.
My client wants these CDs to run in as many machines as possible. That's why I test them on the old PC.
Any idea what the problem and solution might be.
According to this FAQ:
The minimum required system for playback on a PC is:
So, if you need older OS support, you would need to stick with MX 2004
I had searched before posting but couldn't find the answer.
Then, I must have changed my serach a little, because after I posted, I did find the answer.
Unfortunately, I wasted a lot of time working in Director 11. Especially since I somehow saved all my versions with the new software, now I can't open my old files, because they have been re-saved.
Thanks for responding.
