    On starting the latest version of autoplay on my incar box (win98 lite) and my laptop (win 2000 pro) i get the following error:

    I have uninstalled everything related to Autoplay to start from ground level.

    I downloaded the latest release of Autoplay and extracted to C:\Autoplay

    Downloaded vbrun60sp5.exe and installed... no errors
    Downloaded dxwebsetup.exe and installed... no errors
    Downloaded DivX503Bundle.exe and installed... no errors
    Ran install_libNT.bat completed successfully

    Configured .ini's:

    playlistpath = c:\autoplay\playlists\
    videopath = c:\autoplay\divx\

    mp3folder = c:\autoplay\mp3audio\
    playlistfolder = c:\autoplay\playlists\

    Populated the mp3audio and divx folders with media

    Ran playlistbuild.exe ran succesfully

    Ran Autoplay.exe

    And still get the error:

    *************************
    Run-time error '-2005532293 (8876027c)':

    Automation error
    *************************

    Any idea on this??? Love the software and really would like to get it to work!

    Is there anything that i have missed out!

    just replied to your email jakeep.....

    well you say that the prior version works... the major change was DirectX GUI's.... so maybe that is the problem???


    i noticed you used the dxwebsetup.exe, can you get hold of a full install of DX 8.1 - 9??? and try installing that. I have never used the DX9 websetup before, have always downloaded the full installers..
    Project - GAME OVER :(

    Unhappy

    Got another update for you if this helps.! Fingers crossed!

    I have tried loading the DirectX 8.1 to see if that makes any difference but still the same error.

    Also I have put the bogus playlist file name in and it gets to the point in the code where it checks for the playlist folder as I get the error message 'Unable to successfully load playlist files'.

    And this is the same for the 98lite and the win2k set-up

    Hope this sheds some light..

    think I may be on to something with this problem!! have come across this on a web site:

    DDERR_OUTOFVIDEOMEMORY 8876017c -2005532292 DirectDraw does not have enough memory to perform the operation.


    Will follow it up!

    However if anyone else has any info as how to rectify this..... dont be shy!

    go Start>Run and type "dxdiag". this will load the directX diagnostic control panel. go to the Display or Graphics tab and run the DirectDraw tests to make sure DirectX is working.

    ran the dxdiag tools and test and they ran succesfully.

    Which doesnt help really! bugger cheers though worth a try.

    Comming to the conclusion that its just a couple of turd on board graphics cards! unless anyone else has another idea?

    Cheers for your help everybody!
