Glad you fixed it. One last suggestion, I noticed you're importing both PSPApp and JascApp in the first two lines of your script. For simplicity only import JascApp. You don't need to import PSPApp. This will also increase the backwards compatibility of your script.

In older versions of PSP JascApp is the only version that's available but in newer versions of PSP the JascApp library calls PSPApp for you.

Oh Thank you for that suggestion.. I didn't realize that. I'll fix it.. :)

Now if I can just figure out why every time I try to use Eyecandy 3.1 for the glow effect I get this "can't find or open eyecandy 3.1 ini file." I know that's not a Psp scripting question. lol but i'm trying to add using it to my script and this keeps popping up.
It's not the fault of the script because it does it just normally in trying to use it in PSP. There's always something. :)

Is there another section here on the user board where I could ask that question? It's a plugin issue I'm sure.

Does it only happen within the script or does it happen when using the EyeCandy plugin? Because that sounds like a problem with the plugin. If only when running the script then try this.

1) Run EyeCandy Plugin
2) Open the History Palette (if not already open)
3) Right-Click on the Plugin run
4) Copy to clipboard
5) Replace your current EyeCandy plugin call in your script with what you copied to the clipboard.

Can't guarantee it'll help as I said before that's an odd error as there shouldn't be anything PSP is sending to EyeCandy that makes the .ini file visible.

No it doesn't just happen in the script. It happens if I just normally use it in PSP. I know its the plugin but I'll try what you suggest.

thank you

I tried what you said and got the same information that is already in my script. The situation is that the odd error message shows up BEFORE the plugin runs.

The error message pops up first as soon as you select the Eye Candy 3.1 glow in the Effects list.. when I dismiss the message, the glow dialog opens and works just fine.

I didn't write the error message correctly before. This is what it says

unable to open or create settings file Eyecandy3,INI.

Looking closely at this error message wonder why there is a comma in Eyecandy3,INI that's weird because file names should be Eyecandy3.INI. So wondering exactly what PSP is looking for. ???

when I see create it makes me think it is trying to write an ini file to the plugin or at least to the folder the plugin is in. I've checked the permissions on the folder and the files and all of them have Write Permission.
