Text don't appear ex9

hallo,
i hope you can help me, i have a problem and can´t solve it :( if i use the renderer ex9, the text function doesn´t work - no text appears at the renderer window. (i installled the “diextX august redist” version before, which is linked from this website) i hope you can help me. thank you very much!!!

helo gust,

as i understand you seem to have 2 options at the moment:

  • install the addonpack01 (which works with slimdx-august)
  • install slimdx-march (which works with the text-plug shipping with the main download).

sorry for the mess, hope that helps.

hello joreg,
i tried both but there is a new problem :( i can´t install the slimdx, neither the august nor the march-version - the error is:

“There is aproblem with the windows installer package. a programm run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. contact yout support personnel or package vendor” (i have windows vista)

do you know a solution for this problem - can you help me again? thank you very much!

hej, it´s me again. i tried the same thing on an pc, on wich xp runs, the installation of divx march version was no problem (so that seems to be a vista problem) but the text don´t appears on the renderer winow, so anything i do is wrong, but i have no clue what :( (if i use the gdi renderer i have no problem) maybe it helps if i describe what i am doing:

  • open the vvvv.exe (as administrator)
  • double left click -> renderer (ex9)
  • double left click -> text (ex9)
  • drag a line from text to renderer (output left down corner to left top corner)

-> nothing appears in the renderer window :( (even if i change color, font size, text etc.)

hen try the august slimDX… as i understood joreg, the Text in the vvvv download needs the march version, but if you install the addonpack the node gets overwritten by a newer version, which needs the august version… does this solve it?

ok on the xp-pc works everything very good :)

but on my vista pc i still have the problem that i cannot install any of this slimdx versions. the error is:

“There is a problem with the windows installer package. a programm run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. contact yout support personnel or package vendor”

strange, then instead of the end-user runtime try the slimdx-august-sdk. typically for developers, but shouldn’t make a difference except that it may work for you.

still the same problem :(

this sounds like the former installtion was not finished correctly. you can try to uninstall any slimDX you find in the start menu or in the Add/Remove Programms menu. there is also this tool from microsoft wich can delete installer entries, maybe you find slimdx in the list:

or another tool from ms.

it works :) thank you very very much!!!
