Problem opening "C:\username\LOCALS~1\Temp -34 when opening .exe - Macromedia Director Basics

I'm on a win2k machine using Director 6.5. I create the projector and whenever I open the .exe I get the message in the subject like with an OK button. It has nothing at the top of the error message in the menu bar indicating where the message is coming from and it certainly doesn't look like an error that was "trapped". Also nothing appears in the Event Viewer in Windows 2000. Once you hit OK it loads the movie as it should, and everything is fine. To make things even more complicated, I can't seem to te the error ...

    Default Problem opening "C:\\username\LOCALS~1\Temp -34 when opening .exe

    I'm on a win2k machine using Director 6.5. I create the projector and whenever I open the .exe I get the message in the subject like with an OK button. It has nothing at the top of the error message in the menu bar indicating where the message is coming from and it certainly doesn't look like an error that was "trapped". Also nothing appears in the Event Viewer in Windows 2000. Once you hit OK it loads the movie as it should, and everything is fine.

    To make things even more complicated, I can't seem to te the error on ALL PC's. First I was the only one getting it. Then another person starting getting it. Both of us are on Win2k machines. I cannot get it to do this on a win98 machine so perhaps this is a win2k issue? I suppose it has something to do with how Win2k handles temp files. But it doesn't happen on every win2k machine. I have one person with win2k that cannot te the error. Thanks for any help you can give.

    Also the error message looks like this:

    _____________________________________________
    Problem opening "C:\\username\LOCALS~1\Temp |
    |
    |
    |
    -34 |
    ____________________________________________|

    It is the strangest looking error message i have ever seen. There is an exclamation point towards the left of the first message, and the -34 sits at the bottom alone.

    Hi...

    I think it's mostly a security privilege enforcement...check if you're running it as an administrator or a user..

    Thanks for the reply.

    We are all definitely admin's on our machines. There doesn't seem to be any common things between the PC's getting the message other than they are all win2k machines.

    It might be having some trouble unpacking the xtras and .dll files it needs. Try
    a "Shockwave projector" instead.
    D6.5 was never meant to work with W2000 - do you get the same problem with XP?

    Yea i noticed it compiles for NT and 95. I figured that's why there is a problem.

    Whenever I check the box for "Compress (Shockwave Format)" under the options when you create a projector, At the end of the compile I get a blank message box with an exclamation point, and it doesn't create the .exe.

    I guess I'm out of luck?
