Hi, I have uninstalled and re-installed Picture It! Photo numerous times to try and solve this problem. Picture it is part of Microsoft Works Suite 2002 that I have installed and when open has three headings, Pick a Design / Open & Edit / Get Creative Idea's and its this one thats the problem. When I click this heading it just opens a black blank screen even the back button is surrounded by the blackness. When opened this page should show animated choices and links plus movies. Has anyone had this problem or got any idea's as to what's caused this to happen. Regards OldRed
When I Clicked the link posted by Marsh Warden which opened a Microsoft Help Page article 811372 which describes the problem spot on and so thought you had cracked it but when I followed the instructions given by Microsoft which were to click on "run" and type; "Regsvr32\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Swflash.ocx" I just get an error message saying that Windows cannot find this address.
If I open Explorer I can find all the address line except the first part Regsvr32 although this file is used in different folders. Anyway thanks for your help its the nearest I've been yet to solving this problem and at least I now know what's causing it.
Usually this occurs if you are not logged on as Administrator, as XP has higher security features than previous OS's, and will not allow non Admin accounts to changes files that make changes to the registry. If you are not logged on as Administrator, log off and back on as Admin.
Hi Marsh, Both my laptop and desktop pc are administrator accounts. My last post showed results on my laptop, on the desktop pc the error generated was slightly different that read in a box titled RegSvr32 ; Loadlibrary("\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\Swflash.ocx")failed-The specified module could not be found.
This machine has just been loaded with Windows XP Pro and thinking back the Picture It! page worked o'k after loading it with Works then while setting up my home page on Bt Internet I found that the Video news items would not run until Macromedia Flash had been installed which was already up and running on the laptop so I clicked on the install and within two seconds was running the video fine.Its only when I tried to edit some photo's in Picture It that I found all above problems.
