scf file problems after moving files

Postby samstern » Mon Mar 21, 2005 7:35 pm


I am using Screen Saver factor 3.3

1) I created a demo screen saver from various files.
2) Then I moved all the source files (images, sfp file, exe, license, readme, doc file with my nag screens) into a new directory.
3) Then I open the sfp file.
4) Then I remove all the images
5) Then I add them from the new directory
6) Then I save the project
7) I hit "preview"
8) I get the error "Screen Saver Factory Pro could not create screen saver file. Make certain the display properties window is not open"

I can work around the error by recreating the sfp file. This only impacts recreating the screen saver and not the final executable.

However, this error makes it more difficult to archive the sources of a screen saver (in cvs) since it's that much harder to fix any problems once the files are moved about ;>

I'm afraid there is little that can be done about this at the present moment.
