View Full Version : Slide show won't work on web page

I had the same problem, the web show worked beautifully on my desktop, but
would not work after uploading to my web site. I use Win XP and because of
the ongoing litigation between Sun Microsystems and Microsoft, the JAVA Vi
rtual Machine was not bundled with my new computer. Go to http://www.virtu
almachine.tk/ and for a free download of JAVA VM and your web pages should
display correctly.

Oh, bummer! Sorry that didn't cure the problem. Before I downloaded and i
nstalled JAVA VM from Sun, the icon for the .jar file looked like the icon
for WinRar files.

After installing JAVA VM, the icon looks like the last file in this screen

I didn't have any problem viewing my web shows on other computers, at the l
ibrary or at the home of friends, however they did not work on my main comp
uter at home, except when viewing from my desktop. I have two computer con
nected as a home network. My gateway computer is brand new with Win XP and
all the latest updates, but it would not display web show images created w
ith Xatshow. My client computer is 3 years old and has never had any XP up
dates applied. The Xatshow web shows work just fine on that computer. I b
elieve the reason for this is because Microsoft used to bundle JAVA VM with
Windows, but pending litigation they are providing only their own version

I have another chum in Australia who could not display the web shows I post
ed online, but after she installed the Sun JAVA VM, everything was perfect.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help,

I am using the evaluation program.
When I preview the slide show, it works fine but on my web site, it
does not work. I either get a grey box or a black box that says
there is an error. I did upload the html, the jar file and all the
In my slide show folder, the jar file looks like a broken
image...can that be the problem?

I also don't understand the clipboard.
When I click on it, the html for the slideshow is copied and ready
to be pasted. Should I be getting something from a clipboard
somewhere on my computer??? I've never uses anything called a
clipboard. Sorry to be so new at this.

Can anyone suggest something I may be doing wrong.
I really would like a working slide show and any suggestions would
be most apreciated. Thank you in advance.

Thank you. I just downloaded that and it didn't help.
I can see the side show on another web site - just not on mine.

I am getting an error message that the image was not created by
xatshow and another one that says the images have the wrong
