    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.

    Re: Macromedia projector

    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

    Oh, those CDs must be a decade old. Macromedia are no more, having been
    bought by Adobe, and Projector was absorbed and developed into the current
    versions of Flash and Shockwave.

    Your easiest solution would be to use an old computer for viewing those CDs,
    or install an older version of Windows onto a virtual machine in VirtualPC
    on your Vista computer and view the CDs withing the virtual machine.

    macromedia projector

    you mention that macromedia projector is not compatable with vista, but I have vista and WAS playing games with no problems. Now I can't and I can't figure out why... I get the message Macromedia has stopped working.. I just want to be able to play my games again. I think an update from microsoft has done it

    yes, macromedia projector does work on vista
    Background: This is going to be a two-step process, so please bear with me. Received a DVD-ROM disk yesterday (03/17/2009) from Professional Alliance, Inc. (a company providing healthcare-related software and IT support). My task was to review the ?Concise Vision Premier? (Trial version) software program for my brother, who is a periodontist.
    Loaded the DVD and installed the program on my laptop which is running Windows Vista (with Adobe Flash and Apple QuickTime). After a successful install, I attempted to launch the program using the shortcut icon located on the desktop.
    Instead of the program opening, the infamous ?Macromedia Projector has stopped working? popup window was staring me in the face. After exiting from that window, Vista dutifully informed me (in the lower right-hand corner of the system tray) that it has blocked the program from running. Why? It?s because Macromedia Projector tries to confiscate memory that Windows has already reserved for its own exclusive use. Windows immediately kicks in with its ?Data Execution Prevention? subroutine and denies the Macromedia Projector program any of that reserved memory space. Macromedia Projector doesn?t have an alternate plan-B to get memory that?s not being used by Windows, so Macromedia Projector just gets frustrated and completely shuts down.
    Solution, Part 1 of 2: go to your Start button at the lower-left corner of your screen, click on it and then click on ?Help and Support?. Type ?Data Execution Prevention? into the ?Search Help? box and then click on the button to launch the search. Click on the second item of the resulting list: ?Change Data Execution Prevention Settings?. Follow the instructions to add Macromedia Projector as an exception? but how do you find out where the Macromedia Projector program is located? Remember that icon on the desktop that I mentioned earlier for the ?Concise Vision Premier? program? I right-clicked on it and in the resulting window, highlighted in blue, was the ?Start In? location of where the Macromedia Projector program is located. I went to that location. For me, the search resulted in a folder being displayed. I clicked on it to open it, which resulted in multiple subfolders, executables and other files being displayed. I ignored the folders and slowly ran my mouse pointer over the files. Popup windows show details on the files as they are being scrolled over. Lo and behold an executable file named ?CVpremier.exe? had a ?File Description? of Macromedia Projector. Alrighty then, that?s the file that gets added to the ?Data Execution Prevention? exclusion list.
    Solution, Part 2 of 2: You thought this was going to be a lot simpler, didn?t you? silly rabbit. Macromedia Projector is an old program that, depending on how recent the version is, completely baffles anything running newer than Windows XP, Service Pack 2. That means that it has to be run in ?compatibility mode? on any newer Windows operating system. How do you do that?... real easy. Remember the file I found named ?CVpremier.exe? that had a ?File Description? of Macromedia Projector? Right-click on whatever file it is that you have with the ?File Description? of Macromedia Projector, then select ?Properties? and click on the ?Compatibility? tab. For me, eventually the choice of XP, Service Pack 2 did the trick!
    Hope this helps!
