Re: Win10 says programerror

Thanks for the quick response. I'm a little embarrassed not to have googel it. Now it's fixed. https://youtu.be/zBpeoCzNcx0 If I had chosen to reinstall, would all program registrations ex TouchOSC, banks and presets have been deleted? or is there a backup in the program folder?

Re: Win10 says programerror

Do a Google search for "0xc000007b" and you will see this is a common Windows issue.

Try rebooting the computer, then reinstall Show Buddy Active. If the problem is a missing library file, this will hopefully fix it.

OSC in D-Pro lets you manipulate the Show Control window. You cannot access individual DMX channels directly via OSC (as you can in Show Buddy Active) In D-Pro, first create some simple cues which set the required channels to 100%. For example, here's a cue that sets a single dimmer on channel 1 to ...

Yes, we've been testing SBA 2.1.0 for a few weeks, as described here. Once I've ironed out the bugs, a new 2.1 public release will be available. I also hope to include an experimental feature which renders more realistic moving head beams.

In the Preset Manager page of DMXIS, select each preset in turn, and make sure "Fade To Next" is set to 0.00.
