Well, got my completed program out for testing on Vista. It had run
fine on my VMWare XP/Mac OSX; but we get the following dialog when
dragging the stack onto the Revolution Player:
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not
support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to
compress the file."
I assume it means the Media Player and there was no compression
performed at any stage. A CD was burnt on my Mac Pro with three
folders and two text files (read mes). Two of the folders contained
the Mac version stacks and runners; the third contained the Revolution
Player.exe file and the two Windows Stacks. After dragging the Windows
Version folder to the desktop, opening it and dragging the main stack
onto the Revolution Player, the above dialog was presented.
Has anyone else had success running a similar condition on a Vista
machine? Is there a work around?
