Problems Downloading Anim8or
« on: November 17, 2008, 12:22:50 am »

Um, dunno if this is the right spot, i didnt see an errors forum.

I have Anim8or on my computer, but when i try opening it, it just tells me it stopped working.

Hi Xinnor, welcome.

The problem you have is not so clear. In the subject you say you have a downloading problem, but in the message you speak about opening it... you mean decompressing the zip archive? If you can't decompress it and get the executable (which must me run only after having decompressed it, outside of the zip file), then the archive could be damaged, hence you have to download it again.

On the other hand, if you can decompress and run it, then you should post the exact error you are getting, along with details of your machine and any other useful thing. The support team will then take care of your report.

I extracted all the files and I thought that was the problem, it still brings up a Windows Message saying "Anim8or has stopped working, Windows is checking for a solution to the problem"

Well that's a strange message, never ever saw any flavour of windows giving such a message, apart from vista which I never used (did you quote it exactly as it was in the error message?)
Also the fact that you speak about "files" (plural) sounds strange. You should find a single executable in the archive, and nothing more. Please tell us the version of Anim8or you are speaking about, along with the windows version you are using. If you are running vista you might have a look to the "vista problems" page, in the homepage of Anim8or.

Assuming your running vista, I had the same problem and I have vista, simply right click the anim8or.exe file, click properties, go to the compatabilities tab, and there should be a checkbox near the top above a faded out box that says
"Windows XP (Service Pack 2), click the box to check on compatability mode, and it should run.
