    Do you have another machine you can do an install that has never had RR installed? Also when I was having crashes etc, I uninstalled Winamp and reinstalled, and that solved issues for me too.

    I have not had time to go through them one by one since re-doing this. GPSlocation, DFX, and RRextended I think are the only ones I have enabled.

    I still got 2 app crashes so far upon trying to close RR though, so it's still there, randomly. It has been doing this to me randomly from the start since I decided to go with win7 64bit, I assume since it's fine in car wings, it's something to do with DFX specifically, but it's just been an annoyance that I've put up with.

    Sometimes it's when closing via menu, sometimes when trying to increase the volume, sometimes when trying to decrease it, etc.. But on the whole it is working fine now that I re-installed, just DFX, not RR. RR is still the june version in my install.
    Your problem is with win 7 64bit, its dfx voice, its crashing it, i had the same issue, i hit up bluezx3 and he is working on the problem. he said he would try to have it fixed tonight.

    I just accidentally figured this out...Hold the button now and you get the option of what you want it to be.

    DFX 5.1.2 CD,DVD and Solitaire problems

    I have been checking out this skin and it seems GREAT but I have found a couple of problems that I need help with. I did my best searching through all the threads to find solutions but didn't have any luck. Please spare the lash if I missed the info I needed.

    1) I found that the Solitaire game does not display though the skin is launched. The "options" button doesn't seem to do anything either. I tried to follow the debug log and it looks like the Solitaire exe isn't the flash game but rather another program that does not exist. Am I reading this correctly? (SEE attached file)
    ONBTNPRESS||LOAD;Games_Solitaire.skin;Solitaire;C: \WINDOWS\system32\sol.exe;!Solitaire!Solitaire", False

    2) I have been trying to use the "CD" and "DVD" controls on the Main Menu displays (top of screen) and have found that both CD and DVD's are not ejected when that option is selected. Based on the debug file it also looks like a non-existant file for CD/DVD ejecting is being called??? (See attached file)
    Leave Exec: False, menu.skin, RunQ;C:\Users\Jerry\Documents\RideRunner\Skins\DFX 5\scripts\Ejector\Ejector.exe|CD, False

    3) The CD and DVD control indicators on the Main Menu indicate correctly if a CD or DVD is inserted. However only the CD indicator displays correctly when the CD is removed. When a DVD is removed the DVD indicator is not reset. From the debug file I see when the media removal event is triggered but I can't determine what went wrong after that. (See attached file).

    Again, sorry if the above are non-issues but I did my best to read the debug files. Is there a "How to read RR Debug files" document? I have been able to follow some of the info but FAR from all. How can you tell if a non-existant application is being called??

    Thanks -- Jerry

    From your text files I see you are running windows 7.

    Orginally this skin was done based around Win XP.

    so,

    1. The soltaire game is the one included with the windows OS and the path is hardcoded to the WinXP location. Now the path may be different on XP or (looking at my work PC) not installed with Win7

    2. This could again be down to a Win7/WinXP difference or more likely not installed to that location by the DFX installer

    3. Again this could be a difference between the way XP and 7 and the way they handle the USB removed event.

    Thanks for responding so quickly Enforcer. Yes my system is Win7.

    I don't understand your "USB remove event" comment. Could you explain what you mean?

    At any rate it seems like most of the problems I have are Win7 compatablity related. After having read a lot of the threads, it seemed like most of the Win7 compatabilty issues had been fixed already. Are the eject and DVD indicator problems actually RR related or DFX skin related? I would really like to find some sort of solutions. Seems like there would be a fair number of Win7 users that would also benefit.

    I will just update my Solitaire skin. Do you recommend using the OS app or switch to the flash app in the DFX\Games directory? All the other DFX games use those flash apps.

    Thanks - Jerry

    Actually USB was wrong, too much coding specific on my part.

    What I meant was device arrival events which are raised by the windows OS when new devices such as USB are plugged in but also covers CD's and DVD's being placed in their respective drives.

    There will be a script (or maybe a plugin) that the DFX skin uses to trap and handle such events.

    The skin used to use it's own script to deal with the device arrival/departure OS events but that was before it was added to RR and since updated to reflect this addition in RR. It then uses the info provided by rr to decide what action to take, and don't recall issues with W7 with this...

    I am really confused now. Could one of you try the CD and DVD eject and see if your debug file shows the missing folder/file? I don't know what to do next at this point.
