I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi sunray, i dont knwo what a GP file is but i can offer this idea, if you can play this file or have it run you can record this activity straight on the desktop using this very good tool Cam studio,
http://www.camstudio.org/
i use it and have found it quite handy, it saves the recording as either an avi or flash.
You can choose either to record an area or the entire desktop, it can be used for numerous recording jobs.
if you experience a black screen using your dxdiag turn off direct draw in display just as a tempory.
Hope it helps, also what is a GP file :)

Hi Sunray - good to see you here again!

The other newish convertor that will handle this is SUPER
http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

Their site is a bit messy (& could do with a decent Java coder!) but the software (once you find the download links) is pretty good.

M :o)
