I'm trying to load an xtra using openXlib. The goal is to
copy the xtra off of a CD (using buddyapi), then load it from the
hard drive. My copy routine will not overwrite the xtra if it is
already there and newer. This gives me the ability to update the
xtra in the future. We had a problem where Microsoft sent out an
update and it trashed the xtra (WebViewer). The xtra was updated
within a few weeks, but of course on a previous CD the xtra was
accessed from the CD. We had to build an installer that copied the
entire contents of the CD onto the hard drive and then overwrite
the old xtra. I'm trying to minimize this process for a future CD,
if the problem should occur again.
Is it possible that some xtras can only be loaded from the
xtras folder? This is the code I'm trying to test with and it's not
working and there are no errors generated from calling this code,
but there are other errors saying the WebViewer xtra is not
loading. The xtra is where it should be:
Normally scripting xtras are ok with OpenXLib, but if you are
loading the asset xtra that provides special cast members, then you
have to make sure that you load xtra before loading castlibs that
rely on that xtra.
Try making stub movie that loads needed xtras and then move
to the movie that uses newly loaded xtra.
