PI X3 screen capture does not work

PI X3 screen capture does not work

Postby cowboymike » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:46 am

Howdy folks,
was wondering if anyone else is having any issues. I can not get X3s screen capture to work no matter what settings I try. It will start but the hot key does not do anything. It seems to start looping then I can not stop the capture effort nor close X3. I control alt delete and start task manager but I can not close x3 because as soon as task manager starts it is in capture mode and is useless.

Any thoughts?

P.S. I am considering trying to install my old PI7 to see if it might work better than X3.
Happy trails, cowboy Mike

I don't usually use this feature, but I tried it just now, and it worked for me on Windows 7, 32-bit.

I generally use a third-party capture program (FastStone Capture Portable) instead of the built-in capture facility of PI or PSP.

I used to have problems with screen capture in PI.

I use snagit for all my screen capturing, but this is not a free software, but is excellent.

If you are using Windows 7, try the snipping tool.
