When you publish the exe, go into File, Publish Settings on the
Projector tab and check the box for "Display full script error text".
That will make the program give you a more descriptive error message.
Once you know what is going wrong, then we may be able to fix it.
You may want to include a few lines of code, specifically the ones where
the error happens. It is amazing how much better we can help you if you
tell us what is going on. You may need to be a bit more descriptive
about what is a small projector vs a regular projector, of what is the
difference between the different publish options you have chosen.
it now says: "Handler not defined. #baOpenFile Script Error, Continue?"
That's what comes up when i try to call one of the "small projectors" from the main presentation. The small projectors are just little applications that I've tried to build using the MailTo xtra. The script I'm using is this:
on mouseDown me
ok = baOpenFile(the moviePath & "christine email.exe", "maximized")
if ok < 32 then -- some error occurred
case ok of
2: -- file not found
alert( "File not found!" )
31: -- nothing can open swf
baOpenURL(the moviePath & "christine email.exe", "maximized")
otherwise: -- some other error, very unlikely
alert( "Unknown error" )
As I think I mentioned, I don't get that error when I'm authoring in Director. Shouldn't I? I am not so special with Lingo . . .
That is the error that you get when you do not include the BuddyAPI xtra
with your projector. You should either include it in an external xtras
folder (underneath the main exe) or build it into the main exe file by
opening it in Director and going to Modify, Movie, Xtras, then Add
BudAPI to the list.
