Particle Illusion cd error on new laptop
on Sep 27, 2012 at 10:39:12 pm

Particle Illusion when i put the cd in the new laptop
the set up was a snap as all ways but then when i clicked on the exe on the desk top
on the laptop it would not start. then i do the updates and all and i had all the other icons on screen for the short cuts

but i saw with in the new icon the safety shield blocking the program .... asking do you want to run this
program . i hit yes and it opens ....is there something wrong with the cd running on my old xp and being the new laptop..... do i have to remove and set up Particle Illusion again

note i did download the online version to get the program to work
cant use the cd at all i have the box cd copy ......thank you

The CD version is very much out of date now -- I suggest just installing from the download version so you have the latest.

You can get all of the emitter libraries using the "check for updates" feature.

I'm not sure about the shield thing... anybody know what that is? A Win7 security thing I think.

Also, the thumbnails in the "Load Library" dialog do not work in Windows 7. Something fundamental in the dialog class changed and broke that. Sorry.

Alan.
