I am trying to work out the final few bugs on a cross-platform projector, created in Win XP Director 11.5. It works flawlessly on a PC. The bugs, as you might guess, are on the Mac side.
One bug in particular is that as soon as the executable is started on a certain Mac 10.5.8, that Mac responds with "This application requires Shockwave which can not be found. Click here to install it."
The project was absolutely NOT created as a Shockwave file. This same disc works fine on several other Mac 10.5.8 platforms.
Any thoughts about what might be causing this particular Mac to want Shockwave?
Another issue is that I get an instant crash on a MacBookPro 10.6.2 as soon as the executable is started. I've attached the error log for this one.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments!
If you encounter the same problems I did the first thing you have to do to resolve these issues is understand the myth of cross-platform projectors. No amount of effort allowed me to build a projector on a Win XP platform that worked consistently on various Mac platforms (hardware and OS's that met Adobe specs).
The only way I could get a workable projector for both a Win and Mac end user, built on a Win XP platform, was to create all the pertinent files with my Win XP system and then burn the master with Toast (Win & Mac setting) on a Mac.
No other permuation worked, and trust me... I tried many.
