  1. Makes sense based on what I found when testing yesterday.Thanks Mike.
  2. Mike, Is it not true, that if you have a dedicated show machine on which you never ( or rarely) open a sequence in SE, that they will either not be needed or never created. or both.
  3. Yep, they do reappear, when you load a sequence , they re-create during the period when the "analysing" pop up shows up. Been around for many years. Storage is cheap. Just pretend they don't exist.

    Hooking CTB16PC to a DMX fog machine

    Best way IMO is to use a second USB to RS 485 dongle and a cable that converts pins 4 and 5 and 6 to pins 3, 2 and 1 on an XLR, dmx connector. http://www.creativelightingdisplays.com/uploads/DMX-DOC.pdf Look for DMX stage light or moving head posts, there are a lot, and the principal is the same.
  5. When you try to drag the channels around, are you dragging on the channel in the sequencing area or the channel buttons? I drag rgb channels around all the time by dragging on the collapsed rgb button.

    Windows Command

    I don't use S5, so just a long shot. The commands (in S4) are stored in cmdmap.lcm in the sequences folder. Perhaps this file got corrupted or confused. Deleting this file will clear all previous commands for all sequences. Start with a blank slate, so to speak.Just a thought.
  7. Did a search for wmp.dll and it shows up in several windows system folders. Perhaps CCC or avast clobbered one or more of them or the removal tool. Perhaps a repair install of Win 10 or WMP. Win 10 has a reset function similar to Android, which is supposed to return to baseline, with the option to retain files and settings, Don't know how well it works but you should find it in Updates and Security. One other possible option is System Restore, but it often fails. Last resort is reinstall Windows if all else fails. This sort of thing is precisely why anti malware software is to be avoided. Does more harm than good. Windows defender is good enough.

    Verifier Error

    Lorpost.exe for version 5 got left behind when you uninstalled. In order to completely clean up after early versions of the beta were removed it was necessary to manually delete the LOR folder in the Program Files (x86) folder, after the uninstall. Best thing to clean up your situation is to uninstall again, reboot, delete that folder and then do the install of your preferred version again. Of course, as always, back up your LOR data before, just in case.

    Matching RGB colors to look like on the screen

    For purple try increasing the red and or decrease the blue levels. For orange pull down the green to half or less of the value of the red. Adjust to your liking.

    Windows 10 monthly lease

    Still got my Win 7 disks, in a pinch, but I kinda doubt it will come to that.
