    Arrow Im geting black vertical line - FAQ

    I haven't been able to get Ride Runner to run correctly after using the new install. The splashscreen for my skin shows then I just get a thin black line on the screen. I can see that RR is running on the task list. Any ideas?

    Sounds like a rr.ini setting changed like fastmode=-1 (switched to something else).

    I checked and fastmode is set to -1. I tried 0 and 1 but neither worked. I've attached a screenshot and the debug output if that's helpful. Thanks for the help.

    The path is correct and the skin images are there (menu_OFF.png, menu_ON.png). Is it possible there is some dll that isn't registered correctly or something? I am getting the same error with the default carwings skin. Also, when I goto my old Road Runner directory and try to run I get that same problem, even though it was working prior to the install.

    thanks.

    actualy that error can be GENERATED from alot of different reasons
    if a bitmap fails to create
    which if fastmode = -1, could be GDI issue

    which there is gdi, dlls

    you did use the installer right?
    if so that dll would be registered
    GDIPlusWrapper.dll

    AND u have to have GDI+ on ur system, which it IS in normal XP
    but if u "lite"d the os...

    FYI

    the Microsoft dll is

    gdiplus.dll

    which i do stick in the RR dir
    but it prob already is on ur system
    in system32

    ALSO WinSxS (Side by Side) should handle this
    and the correct dll should load
    UNLESS u delete, or messed with WinSxS

    u can delete the gdiplus.dll in RR dir, it shouldnt ever be used anyway (prob could elim from installer)
    (NOT GDIPlusWrapper.dll, that IS BEING used)
    -Thanks

    Mitch you are a genius! I ran regsvr32 on GDIPlusWrapper.dll and now its working. I did run the installer so not sure why it didn't work correctly. Anyway, thanks for the help.

    yes, i was about to post
    i unregged my wrapper
    and it did the same

    i dont see how the registration failed, if u used the installer
    unless U RAN the uninstall on another directory!!!!

    like u installed it twice, then uninstalled one of them!!!

    that would cause the .dll to be unregged!!!
