Open Directory dialog box does not work in FM 10 if client API is not built with 10 FDK


We have a FrameMaker API client that we have maintained for more than 10 years, since before the FM 6.

We just brought the code of FDK 7 to 9 FDK so that we can finally move 7 FM support and focus on FM 9 and 10 features. Almost all the code works fine, but we have problems in a function that uses F_ApiChooseFile in FV_ChooseOpenDir mode.

We do nothing special in the code (I am aware that by passing a value into directory argument can cause the function returns without displaying the dialog box) and you use F_ApiChooseFile in its simplest form:

IntT err;

StringT stemp;

ERR = F_ApiChooseFile (& stemp, (StringT) "Select the folder containing the files to be processed.", (StringT) "", (StringT) "", FV_ChooseOpenDir, (StringT) "");

When we create our DLL using FDK 9 client and run it in FM 9, the directory chooser dialog box appears correctly and the user can select a directory.

When the same DLL is running in FM 10, the dialog box does not appear and the function returns immediately with err =-1 and FA_errno no error reported (as if the user has clicked Cancel).

If I recompile the DLL using FDK 10 dialog work in FM 10, so the problem seems to certainly be related to backward compatibility with a DLL built with an earlier version of FDK.

Unfortunately, you cannot run a DLL of FDK in FM 9 10 and we do not want to distribute and maintain two different versions of our DLL to support 9 FM and FM 10 users.

Is there a solution to this?

This bug was introduced in FM10. Until FM9, FV_ChooseOpenDir was #defined as "3", while in FM10, it was changed to '4' (as part of the evolution of these sets to focus on the value of flag-based). What customers can do to overcome this, is to get the FM using 'FP_VersionMajor' version, and for versions before FM10, they can pass 3 'in FM10, as an argument, the argument will be 4'.

We will ensure that we will honor the 3 and 4 as "FV_ChooseOpenDir" in the future, but until then, workaround above should work.

Kind regards

  • AutoPlay dialog box does not work; flashes upwards and disappears

    AutoPlay stopped working on my PC. First thing I noticed when I swapped a game disc (FEAR: Extraction Point), who had been in the car for a few weeks, for another (Gears Of War). No AutoPlay dialog box does appear. I opened and closed it again, AFRAID to put in, tried an audio CD. No luck.

    What is interesting, is that if I pay attention, AutoPlay Windows flashes up, but immediately disappears. The same thing happens if I 'force' autoplay via the context menu in Explorer.

    I tried the following:

    (1) obviously checked the auto run settings in the control panel. Reset by default, activated it and left, etc.

    ' (2) ' the core hardware detection ' is running and set to automatic. Checked through "services.msc".

    (3) applied a few registry tweaks for entries "NoDriveAutorun" and "NoTypeAutorun".

    None of the above have made the difference. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.

    Please help! Thanks in advance.

    This same situation has begun to occurring with my x 64 installation Win 7 Ultimate and I tried to fix it for ten days.

    Something changed 14 10 days ago and I can't remember what it was. Too many days had passed for restoration help, because it does not restore earlier I had.

    I tried everthing tried dancingcarb. Even downloaded 'autoplay repair' and ' defaul Programs editor ", ran and still no joy. I searched the web and read a lot of posts, but nothing did. This post is one that describes more precisely what I saw.

    Settings for AutoPlay in Control Panel type of work. PowerDVD will launch when I insert a recorded DVD, Windows Media player launches when I insert a CD recorded and Explorer will launch when I insert a data disc. But, always selecting "ask" does nothing. I don't remember Autorun recently. I see the reading dialog box automatic box flash on the screen. I can click the drive and select autoplay, but the same thing happens - the dialog box flashes and disappears.

    I tried to uninstall CyberLink Suite and Nero. Nothing has changed. I wonder if a recent update of Windows changed how works the AutoPlay.

    I ran a full system virus scan.

    This is a new computer about a month old and I'm bored to choose what I want to do every time.

    It's like something (a manager of some sort maybe) Hung all non-application specific selections. If I had Win 7 secondary machine, I start this topic and then to compare registry settings between the two.

    I have not tried booting in SafeMode (will try tonight), but I don't have much hope.

    It is the last obstacle to overcome (and don't understand why it's happening). I hate the idea of starting fresh and redo what I spent the last month making (which involved about methodically mobile 1.5 TB of data and install apps from my last computer), not even know if it will solve the problem. I would be grateful if someone can point us in the right direction. I'm out of ideas.

    Thank you.


    Regarding the "check if auto execution works in safe mode." No, it isn't. Best I can tell, it is not yet available.

    As dancingcrab, sfc found nothing.

    Still stuck


    I don't know what just happened, but I lost my summary of the steps to solve the problem on my system troubleshooting. I can tell if it helps someone, but for now -.

    MotoHelper Service has proved to be the culprit on my system. Changed the service for a manual start and Autoplay now works as expected.

    I hope this helps.

  • Import dialog box does not open

    I just upgraded to 5 Lightroom in Lightroom 3, and the import dialog box will not open. I can select file-> Import Photos and videos... and the menu option flashes as he was selected, but nothing else happens. Any ideas? I'm on OS X Mavericks.

    I figured this out. Based on the below stack trace it seems that Lightroom has tried and failed to create the directory ~ / Movies, and that failure has stopped in the logon dialog box. In my case, ~/Movies is a symbolic link to a directory that lives on an external drive, which was set up in time. I can work around the problem is the disc with my films of editing on it or removing the symbolic link. It is not ideal (I can't quite fit on a disc, and I have other software that really wants movies ~/Movies and not anywhere else) but it works.

    Original title dialog box Auto Play

    I want to download pictures from my camera and the AutoPlay dialog box does.  I did the same way for many years.  What has changed?

    Hi MarthaRamsay,

    ·         Did you do changes on the computer before the show?

    ·         You are able to see that the device is windows Explorer?

    There are several reasons for this problem. AutoPlay might be restricted by group policy, it could be canceled by a program that is running, or the service that AutoPlay needs to start might not run.

    Follow these methods.

    Method 1: Follow these steps:

    (a) click Start, click principally made programs, on Accessories, right click invite, and then click run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    (b) at the command prompt, type net start shellhwdetection, and then press enter.

  • How can I fix it? Dialog boxes does not completely open and boxes of competition do not work.

    I use a Mac Book Air and OS X Lion 10.7.5. Firefox has been suspended until periodically and recovers after the closing and re-opening, but it increases the frequency of crashes. All other programs work correctly and do not hang up. This also happens in safe mode. I've deleted and reinstalled Firefox several times, but the problems remain. I disabled all plugins and problems remain. I am inclined to believe that some Firefox that are not replaced by reinstalling files are corrupted and cause of these problems. Also... I have screenshots, but am unable to upoad them.

    Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox program files, and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

    Note: You can print these steps or consult them in another browser.

    1. Download the latest version of Firefox from office (or choose the download for your operating system and language on this page) and save the file to install it on your computer.
    2. Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (or open the Firefox menu

        • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
      • Mac: Delete Firefox in the Applications folder.
      • Linux: If you have installed Firefox with the distribution-based package manager, you must use the same way to uninstall: see Install Firefox on Linux. If you have downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
    4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
      1. Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
      2. Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.
