I have some director application that we started using in an exhibition in 2008.  I need to be able to make small alterations for screen aspect ratio and PC change.  I have a trial director 12 but it keeps crashing.  Any suggestions please?

Those old Macromedia newsgroups are long gone.

Director is dead.  SWF is dead.  Flash is dead.  So even if you had the original installation disk and serial number, it's still a dead technology that's unusable.  I think it's fair to say you need to start over with Animate CC.

Dear Nancy,

Thank you for this.  I downloaded 'Animate' but could do with a worked example to get me started.  All the application does is have a menu on screen 1 ( a kiosk) and then clicking the menu it shows a video on screen 2 (a wall mounted screen).  Can you point me towards a relatent example please?

In that case, use HTML5 code with the <video> tag and MP4 video file.  Every modern browser on Earth can play MP4 video.  No special players or equipment required.  All you need is a plain text/code editor.

Nancy: how might a Mac user open old Director files on modern hardware? The 11.5 trial gives me the "PowerPC not supported" message (which makes sense — that's ancient relatively speaking!) Really just need to open things enough to take some screenshots of an old project. 

 

Thanks!

No way that I know of.  Director is ancient and will never work on modern equipment.  Short of finding an old Power PC with a supporting OS, I have no other suggestions.

I'll add to the discussion. While Director is ancient, it still works on modern equipment. Windows is easier than Mac but still can work. I recently updated a Director made application I ade for a client who is still using it effectively (on Windows). 

There are ways to upgrade or extract content from old Director files if you have the right tools. I have helped people with this, even recently.

No. Director is no longer under development. Adobe stopped updating the product in 2013. They still sold it and updated Shockwave until 2017. From early 2017, Director was oficially at the end of life.

There are still people that work with Director - obviously not too many. There are some Made with Director products around that sill work.

Thank you for this. I have started using the Vioso player in html5 and in many ways it is a better suited to the kiosk application I am maintaining. Its very easy to programme and has all the control I need.
