Hi all.

I am trying >_< to use Ejay Dance 7 to make music to put in the games that I make.

I put the disc in and a menu comes up: play, install, unistall blah blah blah.

So I click play, obviously. The screen goes black, and the mouse gets larger as the display resolution changes. Then, the black window disappears. Then a box comes up (with an ejay background) telling me it's initializing it's doo dah or whatever. Anyway, at the same time, a windows box appears, saying that this program is not responding. The program is responding, it just does nothing for a few seconds, then loads. This works fine on Windows XP, but not Windows 7 (?!).

Can I stop the box coming up telling me it's not responding and trying in vain to find a solution?

Thanks for your time.
Mark

Does Windows stop Ejay Dance from loading, or simply give you the notification and then go away? By default, it should automatically re-try to load, and the prompt should simply go away. But if the program actually stops loading, the problem may be in the driver compatibility, not actually Windows stopping the program. If that is the case, try checking for an updated driver for Windows 7 (or at least Vista - it may work), since they are VERY different from the ones for XP. Let me know if it works, or I can help you dig farther.

When eJay Dance 7 is about to load (like, when it's loaded the loading screen :P), it says it's not responding, then says it's checking for a solution. When it can't find a solution, it just does nothing. If I close the box, it closes eJay.

Where could I get a driver from? It uses DirectX 9.0c on Sound, Graphics and Drivers. I did a check and I've got all that with no issues.

I tried looking for the help thing, but eJay doesn't have one anymore. It was empire-interactive, but I read somewhere on the interweb that it went into administration and closed down. FAQ's, README and manual have nothing that helps.

Thanks anyway...

I dont know about 7, but on older version of windows there is a registry setting with the number of milliseconds a program has to be uresponsive for before windows flags it as such. try increasing that value?

Have you tried running it in XP compatibility mode?

Yeah...I'll get right on tha...say...how do you do both of them?

SgtMe - I did post back yo you yesterday, but got pulled away and must not have sent it through, sorry. There is a registry key you can change the value to allow a longer time for the program to start, which will keep Wiindows from trying to solve a non-existent problem. If you're sure the drivers are good, go to tech-net (microsoft) and search for list of registry keys and their corresponding action - then just change it accordingly - BUT unlike the gentleman above, I would not suggest trying it in XP mode, as virtual machines are generally not up to the task of running a program like that.

Hope it helps- Let me know.

the gentlemen above said compatibility mode not xp mode ,2 different things ,and that would be my suggestion to ,just right click on the exe and chose compatibly and chose xp ,you can do this either for install or run of the program

Hi SgtMe !!

Sorry to hear you're still having trouble. I will look up the key changes for you and get back to you, BUT.....

I was reading back over the post and thought I should direct you a bit on installing in compatibility mode. First, uninstall any part of the program that may be loaded on your machine (control panel, programs and features, see if the program is in the list, if it is - double click to uninstall).......... Second, insert the disk but don't let it autorun, instead click open to view files and folders, right click on the .exe file and click run in compatibility mode, then see if it installs - - if not, try the same thing except when you right-click on the .exe file this time choose Run as Administrator (then, if it gives you the option again, run in compatibility mode - if not, just run as administrator) . ....try this and let me know if it works, before we go messing with the registry!!!

Cheers!

OK Ill try that.

Somewhere on previous posts I see you and some other guy where talking about compatibility mode and xp mode and stuff.
When I choose compatibility mode, it wants me to choose an OS to use in compatibility. Which one should I use?

It would be good of u 2 find the registry keys but Im not sure I wanna start messing with it yet.

My PC cost £530 from a specialist site and i only got it 2/3 months ago, so i dont want to mess it up :p

If you're on vista there is a fast and small fix for the aspi problem....
Go to www.frogaspi.org download the aspi, rename it to WNASPINT.dll place in C:\Windows overwrite, or backup the old one, then try again ;) It's an easy fix ;)

Please let me know how it works - if it does not, I can experiment here (I have a Windows 7 64 bit machine also) and see if I can force install, then after trial and error, if it works, let you know how from there, OK? - Best of luck to you - I'll do my best to help get it resolved!!

OK - thanks for letting me know - I'll work on it later tonight on my machine, and get back to you with the results. Peace.

thanks for doing all this work for me :D

OK - I downloaded this program from CNET, took ownership, ran as administrator and all is fine - (cool program, by the way) - Now, there's a couple things to check here - 1) Is the CD any good? (maybe try downloading it, as I did) - 2)go to www.howtogeek.com and follow instructions on how to add 'take ownership' to your right-click menu, then be sure to choose that before install - 3) right-click to open menu and click Run As Administrator to install ---- if that does not work, we need to look at your hardware configuration or what other changes you may have made to your machine previously. Oh, and one more thing, be sure to do a complete UNINSTALL of any files from EJay that may already be on your machine BEFORE attempting to install again.

Above all, don't worry - now we know for sure that this thing WILL run in Windows 7. We just need to track down the problem, but it is fixable. - Best of luck to you, and let me know how it goes, and whether I can help you further.

Peace!

Can you expand on what you did? I'm not quite sure I understand. Was the folder already there that you took ownership of, or did you re-install? And, if you re-installed, was it from a new download?

0

no I just took ownership of the already installed folder that was already there. Where can I download it from? I mean the full version not demo?

First try Un-installing that folder - you want to wipe out any reference of the old program so that Windows treats it as a new program, otherwise it won't do any good to take ownership, because Windows already has that folder marked as a problem. Re-load from your disc if it is working, AS ADMINISTRATOR, and take full ownership BEFORE letting it load.

OK. Soz I'm not online all the time. I'm like, on and off daniweb all the time.

Dang...Didn't work...again.
I ran the installer of the CD as admin.
Took ownership of the program folder.
Could take control of folders on CD?:
ERROR: File ownership cannot be applied on insecure file systems; there is no support for ACLs.

Then I ran it.

I guess the only other thing I can think of is to load it to a flash drive and try to run it from there. I really don't know, though. I'm sorry I couldn't help you more. Hopefully someone else following this may be able to help, or possibly post a new thread if that's allowed.
Best of luck to you, my friend.
