Have you tried including all Xtras with the project (in publish settings)?
What does the console say when you run it on mac?
That box is checked (Include all Xtras)...And as I mentioned, it says "Director Player Error. This application requires an Xtra ([xtra name]) that either does not exist or failed to initialize properly." (for a whole bunch of Xtras--listed in original post).
Also it works on Macs with Shockwave already installed on it. It's just if a Mac user doesn't have Shockwave previously installed.
If you go into Modify, Movie, Xtras, are all of the required xtras present in that list with the checkbox for "Include in Projector" ticked?
Also, have you tried putting all the required xtras into an external xtras folder alongside your projector?
That seems like an odd Console Message. Anyways requiring the user to install shockwave isn't a viable option for me. I'll let you know if I find a workaround
Yup. All the Xtras certainly area.
The fact that the once the user downloaded/installed Shockwave the error messages stopped appearing, makes me believe that Shockwave is somehow the issue. And maybe it has something to do with the "Projector Shockwave Resources"?
Yeah Alltaken88...It's not a viable option for me either.
Please do let me know if you find anything.
fansoftmedia: Just to be clear, are you talking about the Console message (from Finder Go->Utilities->Console) or are you talking about the pop up when you open the .app? It looks like a message I've seen as a pop up, but not one that I've seen in the Console.
If what you typed before really is what appeared in the Console then I prob can't be of any help at this point...
What version of Director are you using? You can find out by going into the Message Window and entering :
put the productVersion
The most current version is 11.5.8. If you are running an older version, then update it (Help, Updates...) and see if that helps.
Are you sure that you have tried putting all the Mac xtras into an external xtras folder and it still says that it can not find those xtras? That really doesn't make any sense. Mind you, the Mac xtras are not the same files as the PC ones. The Mac versions will have the file extension .xtra as opposed to the .x32 for PCs, and they are typically found in the Director\configuration\Cross Platform Resources folder.
Also, make sure that in your Publish Settings, on the Projector tab, you must be using a Standard projector as opposed to a Shockwave one.
