    Director Player Error

    I've seen this before and I don't remember what the issue is.

    Unable to load movie playlist. Does the .INI file exist? It must contain a
    section '[Movies]' with an entry "Movie01=Pathname.dir'

    Does anyone know why I'm getting this? I'm running Director MX from a stub
    projector which accesses a movie called main.dir which is protected. I've
    changed the file extension to .dir from .dxr. This is the protocol I always
    use.

    Projector in a location where the path is more than ~127 chars?

    Re: Director Player Error

    that line should read:

    Movie01=main

    The .ini file needs to be at the same level as the projector. Use the
    movie's name with no extension. There should be no quotes around
    anything in that line.

    The projector is actually looking for the .dll files: Dirapi.dll,
    Iml32.dll, msvcrt.dll, Proj.dll. I place these in the Xtras folder for
    each platform.

    I don't remember what the problem was either. As I remember, the
    projector thinks its a SW projector and so it needs the .dll files. MX
    2004 doesn't have this problem.

    Re: Director Player Error

    Is this a Director limitation or a Windows limitation?

    I just switched to baShortFileName for reading text files because of the
    path limitation and now this. Is there a workaround?

    Re: Director Player Error

    Those dll's are there. The ini file is there but the .ini is optional so it
    shouldn't matter. The path length does seem to be the culprit.

    Re: Director Player Error

    I've found that you get this error when the movies you are compiling into a
    projector are nesting in a lot of directories as Andrew Morton says will result
    in the path name containing more than 127 characters. I find that it often
    occurs when you have your project on the desktop because the actual folder
    structure the get there is quite long already e.g. C:\Documents and
    Settings\All Users\Desktop\...

    Try moving all of the files into a short folder structure e.g. C:\Project\ and
    recreate the folder and see if that solves the problem.

    Re: Director Player Error

    I don't nest movies in my projectors, I just use a stub. I found that the
    last character in the projector's name can be the 126th character in the
    path but not the 127th or greater. Strange. It has no problem then
    accessing movies in other folders whose path in total is greater than 126.

    Also, I switched from fileIO to buddyAPI because of fileIO's path character
    count limitation. I already had an alert in my code that indicated that a
    path of more than 128 characters was found in accessing my data and that the
    project should be moved to a higher level. My client saw that alert and
    that's when I changed to buddyAPI. I tested up to 200 characters for
    reading my data files and it was fine.

    My client called back 3 weeks later to say he was having path length issues
    again. Interestingly he doesn't have enough technical knowledge to
    interpret the error message I put in the post that started this thread and
    probably didn't even read the alert. He just assumed it was the same and
    called me saying, "We're still having path length issues."

    Little did he know he was actually right for the wrong reasons. This time
    it was the executable and Director was putting up the alert, not my Lingo.

    In 14 years I've never had any client put a projector into so many folders
    or who named folders with so many characters that the projector had this
    problem. I've seen the fileIO limit issue before but never the projector.

    Remember, tonight, 8pm EST, Animal Planet...the first of a 10 show series
    that I narrate will air.
