Help! Dds-and Normal Map Question


Recommended Posts

Ok heres the problem. I have Paint Shop Pro and I had the DDS and Normal Map plugin working at one time. Now I re-did my computer cause I got a new one and I can't get the plugins to work again.

 

Heres what I have:

 

C:/Program Files/Paint Shop Pro 6/plugins/

/dds.8bi (472 KB)

/dds.8bi (908 KB)

/NormalMapFilter.8bf (892 KB)

C:/Windows/System/

/MSVCP70.DLL (476 KB)

/MSVCP71.DLL (488 KB)

/msvcr70.dll (300 KB)

/msvcr71.dll (340 KB)

 

Paint Shop Pro 6

 

File

Preferences

General Program Preferences

Plug-in Filters

ALL OPTIONS CHECKED

Folder 1 : C:\Program Files\Paint Shop Pro 6\plugins

 

DirectX 9.0c

 

I haven't got a clue as to why this isn't working.

I get this error message in Paint Shop Pro 6 : "The plug-in generated a general protection fault."

 

Please help me I've been at this for hours/days.

 

:wacko::angry:

GPFs are normally caused when something is corrupt - either due to a software problem (bad install), or a bad hard disk or bad memory. Since this is a new computer with a fresh install I would suggest running some diagnostics like memory tests and hard disk scans first off.

I might have your answer. I recently had a HD crash and had to redo all of my data crap. Well, I was similarly having problems with the nvidia command line DDS tools, where I'd had none before. Are you by chance using new (recently downloaded) versions of the photoshop/psp tools?

 

I wrote to the developer (address is in the readme) at nvidia about it and he was very receptive. He listened to the problem, took some debug info from me, and within a weekend, he provided me with fixed (and improved) command line tools. So, there's a possibility the plugin versions are broken too, and you might want to drop him an email...

I think you might be right. At one time or another Nvidia had a certain page with the Plugins and Required DLLs. Unfortunatly they got rid of the page and made a new one. So the file size of the actual new plugins may differ from older versions?? like the two DDS pulgins I have. If anyone could could you check your plugin SIZE and see if it matches mine or something? I think I may have to give that Developer a call. I think I may try re-installing PSP to see if it helps. The truth is Nvidia should have done something about making a specific download for PaintShop Pro with Easier directions. I really don't know what the deal is with my PSP 6. My new computer may be affecting/(or is it effecting?) my plugins. If it helps here is my comp specs.

 

Windows XP (Home)//Don't have a version of PRO yet waiting on VISTA

Fatality Motherboard (AN8-SLI)(the one that has the same FRICKEN MAC ADRESS FOR EVERY FRICKEN BOARD MADE!)

AMD 4400+ (Dual Core) (1 gig mem usable for each core)

2 Gig memory (1 for each core)

Nvidia 7800GTX

(not that ii matters)SoundBlaster 7.1 Audigy 2

 

When I can find some time I'll drop the guy an e-mail I'm sure he'll understand my case is probably unique(I'm lucky like that :( ). Thanks SneaksieDave.
