There could be a few issues here. What version of LOR are you using? The most current only is 2.1.6 and if you are using the demo version from LOR, then it will not find the files. Also, if the files were created in 2.1.6, you can only open them in that version. They are not backwards compatible. There are also different file types. Make sure that you are opening musical sequences, (.lms) and not animations sequences (.lma). That will make a difference as well.

some lms files come with a BAK file whats this?

A backup file. Whenever you save a sequence file, LOR automatically makes a backup copy of the sequence as it was before your changes, and saves it as a BAK file.

Note, though, that there's only one backup for any given sequence, at any given time - every time you save a sequence, its backup file will be overwritten. So, for example:

(1) Make a new sequence, with no effects, and save it to "MySequence.lms". Then:
  • MySequence.lms has no effects
(2) Change it to have a twinkle effect, and save it. Then:
  • MySequence.lms has a twinkle effect
  • MySequence.lms.bak has no effects

(3) Change it again to also have a fade up effect, and save it. Then:

  • MySequence.lms has both a twinkle and a fade up
  • MySequence.lms.bak has a twinkle

Note that after you've done (3), the version with no effects is gone.

BAK files are automatic backups. I think the BAK came about with LOR 2 (S2). If that's the case, those sequences cannot be opened by LOR 1.

Did you buy though an approved vendor or private individual? If the latter, you will probably need to purchase a properly licensed version of the software and upgrade accordingly. I am sure LOR will help you along those lines.

With the older software, it might have shut itself down do due to an expired license.

Gail this is what I would do. If you have a legitimate copy of LOR 1, then install LOR 2(S2). The effects are better, there are more features and it is easier to use.

S2 will create a new directory for the files in your documents....LOR 1 didn't put it in your documents. In the explorer, put all your files you have already done in the S2 sequences folder in your documents. Then, see if you can open them. Just be aware though, once you save your file in S2, you will not be able to open them in any other previous version.

The current version of S2 is 2.1.6, and you can find the link in the "Important Announcements" section of this forum.
