Re: API Error 8

Sorry for the long delay here. With the continual API error message I sort of had stopped using WPSSPro. I had downlaoded version 4.24 you gave, and also now have applied the DisableActiceDesktop registry setting, and am back to using WPSSPro on WinXP.

I will see if the API Error now goes away

Re: API Error 8

I made a video (but could not atach it, so I made PICS of key frames) when I tried "smooth" option. Basicaslly, you can see the wallpaper change process begin, but then it aborts and even clears the current wallpaper to nothing. Maybe this will give you some ideas vlcsnap-2017-05-19-10h44m...

Re: API Error 8

Thanks for some more suggesitons. And yes I know about WinXP. The problem is I have been using some very useful, but old software that goes back to early 1990s, and runs under DOS. No windows version exists, and it is fast, a lot of commandline stuff. Version of Windows beyond XP still run some stuf...

Re: API Error 8

I have tried other Wallpaper changer programs and have never had any such issue. Of course, none were as complicated and multi-featured as WallpaperPro, for sure, and I wont be going back to thse other ones either, but I find it interesting that you do not seem to understand exactly why this is happ...

Re: API Error 8

I am using Win XP SP3.

I would not be surprised if it was low RAM memory. 300s is pretty low and strange things can start happening.

Restarting would fix it for sure because I would be back at 2,047, but I hate doing that unless really forced to.

Impressive! Here is an example of a collage from a secondary monitor, now with fixed Image Information sett...
