MAinActor & Dive.dll in Warp 4
Posted on 1997-10-01
I can run MainActor in Warp 4, but am unable to play any video file: I get a "Can't open Dive screen/window" error. On the off chance my Dive.dll had been corrupted, I was planning to rename it and then substitute the DIVE.DLL included with MainActor. I was unable to rename DIVE.DLL, getting a "program already in use by another program".
I used WatchCat to look at my DLL's and DIVE.DLL does not appear to be in use by any other applications??
In response to Arjen's questions, it is Main Actor ver 1.10, any file I try to play (or display in MainView/2) brings up the error. I can load files, save them etc. but am unable to play any AVI, MOV etc. My screen resolution is set at 800x600 at 16M.
In response to Arjen's suggestion: tried that, didn't work. However, I tried Interstream's MPEG player, and it informed me that DIVE wasn't supported in the current system resolution. I thought I'd played with that a bit before, but I'll go back to this. Interesting since MainActor ran fine in Warp 3.
