During the transfer did your files get set to read-only? (check properties).

No they did not, but even when I try to make a new sequence and save it, I get the same error.

Perhaps the directory that it is trying to save it in is not created. What is the history of installing LOR software on that machine?

I had version 1.6.1 on it and then upgraded to the gamma version. Everything worked fine until then. Tonight I removed the Gamma and reinstalled from scratch 1.6.1 and the saving worked, but when I redownloaded the gamma it wasns't working once again.

Also, I forgot to mention that when I save the file onto my computer, I can only open in through explorer. It does not show up in the Light-O-Rama folder when I open the sequence editor.

Please take note of where files are stored in 1.6.3 ... Sequence and audio files are no longer stored in C:/Program Files/Light-O-Rama Rather they are stored in some other place that excapes me just now. When you start the Sequence Editor and Click Open take note of the path it is using by clicking the Up Folder button.

I suggest that you run the attached registry wipe program to clean up your machine.


  • Stop All programs
  • Unzip and run the reg wipe program
  • Start the Light O Rama control panel from (Start->All Programs->Light-O-Rama

I ran the registry wipe utility and it is still not working. Anymore ideas before I do a system restore and wipe everything?

Chad,



Are you logged with administrator rights. This could be a permissions error. Check your rights to this directory.

Could you please download and install Microsoft's MSXML 4.0 SP2, and see if that helps? Make sure that no programs (including no LOR programs) are running when you do so.

You can get it from Microsoft's website, at:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=3144b72b-b4f2-46da-b4b6-c5d7485f2b42&displaylang=en#Overview

The installer is on that page as "msxml.msi".

thanks for all the help. I will try that Bob and see if it fixes it, but for now I borrowed my sisters laptop and it is running the show.

Thanks again,
Chad

Chad,

You receive that error because there is one of LOR components not present, or if it is present and it is not registered properly, or that component is corrupted. The components I am talking about are DLL/OCX files. This fail right away when the program create an object and couldn't find that object. To solve issue First make sure the that component is existed. if it exist, then register it again using the Regsvr32.exe command.

I looked under my LOR folder, I found:

AudioCnv.ocx

DigitalIOX.ocx

LComm.ocx

LORChannelIO.ocx

LORSequence.dll

xerces-c_2_6.dll

Beside those, I dont know do we have any more in anywhere else such as in system folder. But first, just check to see you have those under your LOR folder wherever you installed. If you miss one, likely that it is. If not, run Start->Run... command and type regsvr32.exe "C:..Light-O-RamaAudioCnv.ocx" to register again and repeat this for each component. If it is still not work, likely one of the VB component missing, corrupt, or library file reference is missing. This file only Dan's programmer will know which one. Hope this help

NgocHong,


Forgot to mention this, C:..Light-O-RamaAudioCnv.ocx mean to give the full directory where you install the LOR. if you install from the default folder then the command should be regsvr32.exe "C:Program FilesLight-O-RamaAudioCnv.ocx".

Chad,

Did any of these suggestions resolve the issue for you?

I am experiencing this same problem on a W2K/SP4 machine, when attempting to save (or save as) a file in the sequence editor.

I have run through the suggestions, up to reregistering the DLL's with no affect.

Thanks,

Jim

Hmm, look like not the components in LOR directory missing. There was one component in system file missing when you were trying save the file. That component was missing when the program used function CreateObject() in save/save as routine. Only Dan's programmer would know what component is.

Sorry I forgot to reply back, I got caught up in my display and forgot. I ended up using an old laptop that my sister had with XP and it worked fine so I haven't turned on that computer since, but once i get some time i will see if I can figure out what is going on and try some of the ideas. Thanks for all your help.

Chad,

After doing all the above steps and several uninstall and reinstalls, with no change I gave up:(. Then while working on something else, I came across the solution:D.

Did you say you were having this problem on a old Win2K machine?

That is where I was experiencing the problem, in a standalone show machine that is not even connected to the internet. Hint! Since it has no internet, I never opened the browser. Another piece of software I was testing on that machine, told me it needed IE 6.0, at which point the light bulb went on in my head (just like the LOR icon), my old machine had IE 5.0 installed, which does not contain scripting objects. Scripting objects are one method a application can use to interact with the file system for saving files.

I installed IE6 and LOR is now working properly.

When you get back to looking at your machine, check the version of IE installed, maybe the same solution will work for you.

Maybe if Bob or Dan are still monitoring this thread, they can confirm the minimum version of IE that is required, I went looking through the LOR II documentation but could not find it.

Hope this helps.

Jim
