  1. PTE 9 on laptops with dual graphics

    Test with simple project: Everything works as expected in PTE 9.0.15 and PTE 9.0.14 Test with the (heavy) project where I recently had problems with, turns out to be a memory problem again with use of large files: Opening Objects and Animations in PTE 9.0.15, Task Manager shows 834,0 Mb Opening Objects and Animations in PTE 9.0.14, Task Manager shows 251,5 Mb
  2. PTE 9 on laptops with dual graphics

    Hello Igor, I have read your topic carefully about the laptop with dual graphics cards, but is this version also meant for other devices? Just for your information. I don't know if you have tested this version with a AMD video card (on PC), I did, but it goes completely out of hand. Objects and Animations freezes after a few seconds of playback. The music still plays a little further but with an echo. Afterwards the sound is repeating in an endless loop. I had to press Esc several times to leave the loop. My video card: AMD Radeon R9 200/HD 7900 Series 3072 Mb memory Software version 17.12.2 Greetings, Cor
  3. Problems with zip-unzip

    Hello Manuel, I think you have to find out if the memory of your PC is not overloaded. Igor recently explained to me that when using large files or many objects on one slide in Objects and Animations, memory usage can cause overload (+2Gb). A project I worked on recently blocked regularly. PTE froze in Objects and Animations. To save my data of that "overloaded project", I tried to create a zip-file and this did not work either. There was apparently not enough memory to make the zip file. I adapted the big files and reduced the dimensions and all went perfect afterwards.
  4. Hello Igor, I did some testing as you asked: point 2. memory usage was 1095,8 Mb. Start with my last project, with the used files in the File tree: 56 files. One was 5760x3840 pix or 2719 kb, a few of 3888x2430 pix, one of 2048x2048 pix or 4688 kb and the other files between 23 kb and 1665 kb. I had 7 audio files wish the largest is of 1315 kb and the smallest 36 kb. There were no video files I used. point 6. memory usage was 101,6 Mb, after start of new project with only JPEG files in the File tree (90 items, pixel size max. 1500x1000 and file size max 932 kb). So small files are no problem with version 9.14. Will it be possible to work with larger files in future versions? Because of the widely requested encoding of 4K video (3840 x 2160). We need to use high quality images for that format. The most difficult for the user of PTE is when a bigger JPEG file poses a problem or not, even if one keeps the size within the limits. Kind regards, Cor
  5. Hello Igor, The very best wishes for 2018! I try to describe the problem as well as possible: 1. I uninstalled PTE 9.14 several times. The problem is, I could not load an older version of version 9, wish I had no problems with in the past. I only keep the latest version (7.510, 8.022 and 9.14).I loaded version 8 without problems with the same files, but of course not with the same possibilities wish I wanted to try.I recently did a test with version 9 for exe files of less than 4 Gb and had no problems with it. But then that version 9.?? changed to 9.14 with which I have these problems. In order to relieve PTE I recently wiped out all "Slide styles" that are not standard in PTE due to many error messages and blocking of the program.I have encountered if one load "Slide styles" from different authors you will certainly get problems. 2. In the project I was working in were 56 files. One was 5760x3840 pix or 2719 kb, a few of 3888x2430 pix, one of 2048x2048 pix or 4688 kb and the other files between 23 kb and 1665 kb. I had 7 audio files wish the largest is of 1315 kb and the smallest 36 kb. There were no video files I used. In the past I had no problems with such formats. The exe I finally generated is 83,5 Mb. 3. I finally managed to complete the project, but I had to save the project every 5 to 6 manipulations, exit the program and restart PTE again because the memory was immediately filled with plus 1500 Mb and PTE stopped working. 4. I found following problems when PTE blocked my project, not always the same problem, but sometimes one or the other:- Objects and animation completely blocked, no manipulation was possible, all data in the boxes disappeared.- Objects and animation changed my settings randomly, however I had not made any changes myself. - In Objects and animation when I tried to load a new .png image the program generated an error message "Error loading image ...png", due to the overloaded memory. - At one point I tried to save my project and for no apparent reason my .pte file disappeared from the folder where I had saved it.Then afterwards I saved 4 backup files from my project because I had lost a day's work. I also searched the .pte file in my permanent backup system, but the file could not be found.I also looked at "PicturesToExe \ Versions \ 9.0 \ RecoveredProjects" but this folder was empty. Very frightening. - Countless error messages "PicturesToExe no longer works, the program is canceled". If I had not saved the last manipulations, I lost everything again. 5. I thought the problem might have to do with my AMD Radion HD 7970 3 Gb video card. However I always keep the latest updates. I have now "Radeon-software-adrenalin-17.12.1-64bit". 6. When I start PTE now with my last project the "Task management" shows a memory of 1027,7 Mb. When I change to a new project (without closing PTE and with no files at all) the "Task management" shows a memory of 1033,1 Mb. Igor, I never had any problems with PTE and I am sorry that I have to bother you with that. I thank you in advance for any assistance. Cor
  6. When creating a new project with PicturesToExe 9.14 I find that the program suddenly consumes a lot of memory. PTE 9.14 blocks very quickly after a few manipulations. Especially in Objects and Animation the screen freezes frequently.Even when the Slide list is empty PTE 9.14 uses a lot of memory, see below: In Objects and Animation, while editing the Animation, settings are suddenly changed inexplicably or the program stops working completely: The biggest problem is that PTE 9.14 no longer responds reliably: When I want to save my work, the .pte file suddenly disappears from the screen and can no longer be recovered. PTE 9.14 delete the .pte file instead of saving it. I have never experienced such behavior, there were no changes made to my computer and to my knowledge there were no updates for Windows 10. Computer Specifications: Intel Core i7-3770 K CPU 3.50GHz 16 Gb DDR-3 x64-based processor AMD Radion HD 7970 3 Gb PCIe x16 Windows 10 Home version 1709, build 16299.125
  7. More text options

    With a hotkey? Text rectangle is green, push hotkey rectangle is blue for adjusting space. Ex.: Alt+T or Shift+T Just a thougth.
  8. New test with 650 jpg (5184x3456 pix), music 16 mp3 total size 129 mb. Creating Safe exe file took 4 min and 55 sec to generate. The total size of the file was 4.999.878 kb Unpakking zip generated error messages as: "The archive is damaged" and "The archive is irreparable". Creating normal exe file took about 2 min, +/- same size 4.9 gb Error message of Windows 10: "This app can not be executed on your pc" Spec. my pc: Intel (R) Core (TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz RAM 16,0 GB, 64-bit operating system Windows 10 Home version 1709 build 16299.19 Conclusion for my situation: Normal exe below 4 gb is working perfect.
  9. Successfully test of 3.9 Gb file: 499 jpg, music 13 mp3 files total 102 Mb, no video. Not successfull was test with 5.1 Gb, 4.6 Gb and 4.3 Gb, exe didn't start (with error message in Windows 10: "This app can not be executed on your pc") So all below 4.0 Gb worked for me.

    Erik, As Dave wrote: Sleep de "Landscape" afbeelding in de Dialijst (hoofdscherm) - het Hoofdobject 1 zal automatisch worden geïndexeerd. Voeg de twee portretafbeeldingen in Objecten en Animatie toe en stel Hoofdobjecten Index 2 en 3 voor deze afbeeldingen in. Maak de stijl en voeg drie afbeeldingen toe aan de Dialijst - Pas uw stijl toe. Dave thanks for your help.

    Erik, However, that is the right order to capture the style. Nothing has changed in the working mode of the program, only the names are translated in Dutch. I've done it myself and it works perfect. In principle, the duration of the style and the number of slides used are also recorded. Maybe there is something wrong with the registration of the category? Give the style a name, then the category, eg "Eigen stijlen", author and text are not necessary. Than the aspect ratio, which must be correct (4: 3, 16: 9, etc.). Then "Stijl maken". Go back to the main screen and press "Stijlen", then you must see the created style in the list under "Eigen stijlen". Do you see the style under that category? Import a Slide Style The Style (“xxxx.ptestyle”) can be imported from any source. Click on Slide Style ("Stijlen") Click on Tools ("Opdrachten") Click on “Import” ("Stijl importeren") Or click right with your mouse on the style and you see also the instruction "Stijl importeren".

    Hello Erik, I checked your exe file and the style is fine. To keep him in the list Click on "Slide Style" "Tools" "Create Style" or in Dutch the buttons: "Stijlen" "Opdrachten" "Stijl maken"

    Hi Erik, Hi Lin, Igor sent me a PM. I am from Belgium and speak Dutch. For many years I have been translating PTE into Dutch. Has Erik sent you an example already? I'll help with the translation if necessary. Best regards, Cor

    Daniel, I'm afraid that you are right. Greetings, Cor
