15: Media data directory does not exist

Top  Previous  Next

Message Number: 15

Severity: Warning

Summary: Media data directory does not exist

Details: The name of the missing directory


The directory that Light-O-Rama expects to find audio and video files in does not exist.  This could occur, for example, if the installation was interrupted, or if a registry cleanup utility deleted certain Light-O-Rama entries from your computer's Windows registry, or if the directory was deleted or renamed.


Until this problem is resolved, it is possible that your shows will run successfully, but it is likely that they will not.  Even if the shows themselves do run, certain sequences in them may not.


You may be able to solve this problem by running the LORPost utility, which is typically automatically run after installation.  This utility can be found in the directory where you installed your Light-O-Rama program files, which is typically (but not always) C:\Program Files\Light-O-Rama.


Note that the LORPost utility will ask where your Light-O-Rama data files should be stored.  If you already have a "Sequences" directory, and would like to keep your sequences there by default, tell it the directory one level above that directory.  For example, if your sequences are stored in C:\LOR\Sequences, tell the LORPost utility to store your Light-O-Rama data files in C:\LOR.


Otherwise, try reinstalling Light-O-Rama, or uninstalling and then reinstalling.
