WINDOWS - Frequently Asked Questions
forces me to use the C:\ERSLIDE directory to store my graphic files. Why
can't I put them where I want?
the program used to produce SLIDESHOW does not give me the option to allow
the user to select this. I have requested the authors to allow this. Maybe
NOTE: A new version is now available
which can be placed in any directory with the graphic files.
I want to show my presentation produced with Powerpoint etc. using SLIDESHOW.
Why doesn't it work?
SLIDESHOW is designed specifically to display individual graphic files
placed in the default directory only. A list of those graphic file types
is displayed in the HELP within the SLIDESHOW program.
How do I specify the order in which the picture files are displayed in
SLIDESHOW? There seems to be no sense to it.
slides are shown in the order in which they are placed into the default
directory. To ensure the order you want, put the files into the default
directory one at a time in the order you want. I have asked the authors
of the program used to produce SLIDESHOW to fix this with no success yet.
NOTE: It now appears that the files play in alphabetical
does the countdown timer do in RESTART?
The countdown timer of 5 seconds in RESTART gives you the chance to stop
the restart process by clicking on the button. If you had your computer
set to restart at a particular time and you happened to be working at that
time you may not want it to restart.
is the idea of the encode seed in CIPHER?
encode seed number of four digits can be chosen by you or you can use the
one given each time you open the program. The code used during encoding
must match that used during the decoding process. The idea is you and your
friends decide on a number and you simply enter this number in the place
provided, over writing the random one supplied.
|Q. I noticed
you have a file "Blank.cur". What is the use of it?
applications allow you to select the mouse cursor (eg. Illuminatus). If
the program you are designing only uses the keyboard to control functions,
then the mouse pointer (cursor) only gets in the way. This file shows an
invisible pointer ie. no pointer on screen.
