iml32.dll macromedia projector error

I am having trouble on a laptop running XP with a “Macromedia Projector” error which is having troubles with a iml32.dll.

The problem occurs when going from one movie to another e.g.

Go to frame “MyFrame” of movie “MyMovie”

The problem does not occur on a full install but on minimum install when the exe is installed on the hard drive and Program is running from disc.

 the OnLine Crash Analysis report returns:

Thank you for submitting an error report. The error was likely caused by:

Flash Player

Flash Player was created by Macromedia, Inc.. Please contact Macromedia, Inc. in order to find out if a solution or an updated version of Flash Player is available. For more information, see the Macromedia, Inc. Web site.


However, as usual this was of no help. I have uninstalled and installed both the shockwave and flash players and still no joy. Also the program is already playing flash before it crashes. Any ideas?
Watch Question

Is this a Director or flash program?  Is this on a CDR?  Try burning at slower sppeds as a fast burn my not be reading correctly or fast enough.  


Director program on CD with flash intergrated. Have tried burning at 1x speed but still have problems.

Thanks for your help

The problem appears to have been solved by putting the dll into the Xtras folder.

I'll award the points to you anyway, as they are sensible suggestions anyway.
Soundsl liek you made a Shockwave projector.  If you put the items in the Xtras folder then its a "fast start" stub.  There are 4 DLL files that will need to go int eh Xtras folder.  If you make a "Standard" exe then these are packaged into the projector.


Further to your comment:

It is a standard projector - the four DLL's you mentioned appear to be created on the fly when the app is run into a temp directory, and deleted upon exit (unless it crashes).

Sometimes copying the DLL's into the application folder appears to solve the problem.

I may re-open the question anew, as the problem still occurs on some machines and not on others, and a recognisable pattern has not yet been established.

Thanks again for your assistance though :-)
Correct.  They are packaged into the program but will "unpack" at runtime to a temp folder.

Most likely this is a CD Rom read issue.  I hae seen this many times when the drive has problems reading the CD.



I have created a new question (easy points!?)


If you could reply there with more details, that would be great.

Also, the problem seems to be specific to Windows XP.
