semitransparent windows problem

Post by upir » Tue Aug 08, 2006 7:40 pm


I just downloaded demo version od Revolution Studio 2.7.2
All I want is to make semitranspart window, so I set the Shape of main stack to one image, and put another image on the stack..

It's working fine on my computer, where is Rev. Studio installed, but on other machines, I can see only gray window!! (everything WinXP)

Please, help me and write me what i'm doing wrong (do I have to add something, on install something) ? Thanks!

Thats how it should look like (=how it look on my machine...unfortunately
only on my machine):

Hi upir,

hmm, have to guess!

Did you import the image that you use for the windowshape or did you reference it (set the filename of the image)?

If you referenced it, then the image will of course NOT be present on other machines, unless you use a RELATIVE pathname and distribute the image with your stack in a correct folder structure.

Maybe that helps?



VERY cute stack, by the way :-)
