Hey Derek!
First, congrats on receiving your free copy my friend! Well deserved.

Second, no I was being a bone head, I was talking about AMS 3.0 & 4.0.
In AMS 3.0, I was able to check (behind the scenes) the version of QT. If the end user had >=5.0 nothing would show up and the show would go on. If they didn't have QT 5.0 a screen would come up yahda, yahda, yahda install, thanks and on you would go.

In AMS 4.0 it always thinks you don't have the right version installed.
Under Project/Settings/Actions/On Initialize we have:

The problem is that there is no longer any %QTVersion% built-in variable.

You will need to set its value first, by using a combination of "File - Get Default Viewer" and "File - Get Information" actions. Or something along those lines.

Is this a converted project? This should probably have been done for you by the convertor. (Mark?)

I am trying to do the same with Acrobat Reader on an imported AMS3 project.... it does not work as converted into AMS4.

What needs to be done?

Bruce
08-14-2002, 02:38 PM
Yes this was converted

Derek

AXXESS - do yu definatetly need to check the reader version? if simply opening a pdf file, File.Open will work a bit easier. Acrobat (assuming its actually the registered prog for that file type) will then open it automatically.

Version is not as important. With the converted expressions into AMS4, AMS 4 assumes there is no version of Acrobat present and in all cases offers to install, even if its already there. I'll just have to experiment to see the best way of doing this now. Too bad it wasn't a little easier with the conversion of the AMS3 file....:)
