View Full Version : Windows XP

After I compile the program I've written with your SDK and run it on Windows 2000 it works fine. However, when I try and run it on XP I get a "no device selected" error. I'm using the IEEE 1394 device. What can I do to fix this problem?

If the name of the device is hardcoded in your application, you can get a problem by transfering an executable from Windows 2000 to XP. In XP, video capture devices may have different names than in Windows 2000. You should start the Demo application on XP to see what the device names are.

There are two ways to solve your problem:
Try to open the device with the Windows 2000 name. If this fails, use the Windows XP name

Implement the device settings dialog as shown in the "Making Device Settings" example. You can save the selected device in the registry, so you application needs only once to show the device settings dialog.
