Hi Chukrox, it's been awhile!

You missing the Macromedia library files need by Director Player. You can try a reinstall, or check to see where it's looking for the files and either redirect the pointer or move the files to that location if you've checked and you do have them.

Thank you Dew for your answer, i'm sure your correct. Have time for a follow-up question? I dont recall ever installing Director Player, none of the software that i have that utilizes Macromedia Director has an "Install Director Player" option and I've been all over the www.macromedia.com site and the only thing available there is the full Director, not just the player. Where can i find the install files Director Player?

Macromedia Director/Player was designed for Mac computers primarily, and is usually included with any of the Microsoft Home Multimedia Titles such as Cinemania, Power Point (including Power Point for Office 97)and Encarta.
