hello,

I'm happy with IVMP even without updates but recently something happened:

IView cannot longer deal with long filenames?

I open a catalog and the window title is "PHOTOD~1" instead of "Photodisk".

But even worse:
when exporting images via "Action" => "Convert image files ..." the created files loose their file name, a "DSC_D_0041.nef" becomes "DSC_D_~4.JPG"

Now, IView has not changed for 2 years - so it's probably something else on my PC - but what???

One of those microsoft updates? Are they trying to force me into this Expression thing? ;)

Jens

Update:

I installed IView Media Pro 3.1.3 in a Vmware running a rather clean, current Windows XP Pro with SP2 and get the same odd behavior with long filenames as on my main PC.

So, I gave - partially - in: downloaded the current version of Expression Media 1.x and installed it in the Virtual Machine and: no trouble with long file names! Do I really have to give up my beloved IVMP due to some dirty tricks applied to my PC by Microsoft?


Sad :(

I have had the same problem. It is not caused by IVMP but by an error in Apple Quicktime. Version 7.4 has this error. By going back to 7.3 the problem was solved.

finally a reply from Apple.com
Quote:
If you use FSSpecs, you will get the short names after upgrading to the 7.4. This change was made to make the Unicode File Name support work on Japanese systems. We recommend that iView change their code to get the long name by calling the GetLongFileName Win API.

We consider this issue closed. Thank you for taking the time to notify us of this issue.

So I'm stuck with an old quicktime or have to "upgrade" to the new version ExpressionMedia 2 from MS to get this fixed :( <sigh>

Hi Jens,

There are many reasons not to use long file and folder names. Nevertheless the final roll up for Expression Media 1 fixes the QT bug:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951532

As a licensed iView MediaPro 3 owner you are entitled to a free xMedia 1 license:

http://news.iview-multimedia.com/weblog.php?id=P303

If you haven't registered your iView license then you wouldn't have received the "upgrade" offer. It may not be too late to register for this - hurry up and do so if you haven't.

This may be the end of iView as a viable DAM app on today's computers. When other apps, operating systems, RAW formats, etc, are updated the product that will fix any compatibility issues will be Expression Media. If you live in a cave and can lock your current system down (computer hardware, software, camera, etc) then iView may have a year or two left in it. That isn't meant to be a flippant remark as some people can or have to lock there system from updates.

Great, if only EM 1 was not a a step down from the latest IView otherwise ...

And to get back to IView level I have to go to EM 2 and pay for that <sigh>

I feel cheated by MS with this EM business :(

Hi,

I don't understand. What does xMedia 1 not have that iView MediaPro does?
