    Macromedia projector

    When I try to open my anatomy cd a message pops up that says Macromedia
    projector has stopped working. The cds worked 1 week ago in my old computer
    with windows xp. How can I fix it?

    Macromedia Projector is a utility from Adobe (formerly Macromedia) which
    bundles up a Flash visual presentation into a stand-alone EXE file, so you
    can display the images on a PC without the Flash Player installed. Your
    anatomy CD-ROM probably used Macromedia Projector to display its anatomy
    pictures.

    Macromedia Projector is not compatible with Vista. In order to run the
    program, you need to set the Compatibility to a previous version of Windows.

    In Explorer, find the main EXE file on the CD-ROM which runs the anatomy
    program. Right-click the EXE file and choose Properties from the context
    menu. The Properties dialogue will appear. Choose the Compatibility Tab.
    Check the checkbox in Compatibility Mode, for "Run this program in
    compatibility mode for:" and choose and earlier version of Windows - Windows
    98 would be a good one to try. Then click OK to save the changes. Now
    double-click the EXE file, to launch the program.

    Once you have set the Compatibility, Windows Vista should "remember" to run
    the program in compatibility mode, so hopefully you only need to do this
    once.

    Hope it helps,

    Hi there. I have 2 games, Zoo Vet and Zoo Vet: Endangered Species, and both
    of them get the error message "Macromedia Projector Has Stopped Working". I
    have done the compatibility mode thing, which should have worked considering
    they both work in XP. But it didn't. It's very frustrating, as I can only
    play the game if I quickly click to skip each cut scene, which means I miss
    all the dialogue. Is there ANY help for this? I have found many posts
    on-line about this issue, with everyone saying to do the compatibility thing.
    Adobe is no help, they have a tech note saying they are working on the
    problem, but it was last updated in October 2005!! They say it's a problem
    with having Quicktime 7 on the system.

    I've found the program compatibility wizard to be quite useless. It seems
    that the problem is more with the older software of Macromedia Projector. I
    think it was written for operating systems XP and older. Vista seems to spit
    out Macromedia like it was garbage. Unless Adobe, or Microsoft, figures out
    a patch, I think this problem is going to stay for a while. Just a heads up
    from an unemployed computer tech.

    Macromedia Projector issues

    I am having the same problem with my anatomy cds. I have completed the
    compatibility change and this did not correct my problem. Has there been any
    updates for this problem or any solutions?
