Flists : I do that too, you will have to redownload the installer - it's not going to affect your data.

Davideo7 : Is it possible for you to record a video tutorial for the save file recovery?

Some people say they just cannot recover their saves even after reading this and my previous post before the last here. I would do it, however, I don't have any recording software installed; perhaps someone else on staff would be willing if you don't have time soon.

I entered the location of the VizzedRGR, which was stored C:/Documents and Settings/"Windows account name/Desktop It didn't work, so I uninstalled VizzedRGR, and re-uploaded it. An error occurred after the upload was complete, but not before I closed the dialog box which stated that the upload was complete. I closed my browser (IE) and reopened it. I've tried to play an NES game and a Genesis game since. Both times, the game window opened, but the games didn't load. Should I uninstall it and reinstall it again, due to the error message, or is there some other problem?


Any additional help appreciated.

Thanks.

IDOJ : I think the problem with that is that the desktop isn't a 'folder', do you have a default path to save downloads to?

All right... I'm a technology invalid, and, apparently, the last person still having trouble saving game files.

I uninstalled and re-installed the new RGR Plugin. I did, then (Wednesday, maybe) find the save areas I've read about... for example, a folder titled Saves, to which Sega Genesis games can be saved.

Today, I can't find that folder. I searched my hard drive. The following are the results:

VIZZEDRGRUTIL.EXE-2B69D5... (Location)C:/WINDOWS/Prefetch
NpVizzedRgr.dll                                (Location)C:/Program Files/Vizzed/Vizzed Retro Game Room
VizzedRgrAx.ocx                                (Location)C:/.Program Files/Vizzed/Vizzed Retro Game Room
VizzedRgrUtil.exe                              (Location)C:/Program Files/Vizzed/Vizzed Retro Game Room

What does this mean, why can't I find the folder I found the other day, and, it'll help if you tell it to me like you would to a five year-old, what do I have to do to save games?

When I did uninstall & re-install the plugin on Wednesday, I couldn't get any of the games to load. Today the game I wanted to play loaded normally, so obviously, the plugin reinstallation worked, or the game loading would have stopped at the message, You must download the latest version of the VizzedRGR plugin.

Seriously. It's frustrating. Anything step by step to explain what I'm missing, appreciated.

Thanks, 

IDOJ

IDOJ : In other words, right-click on the installer if it's on your desktop, I'm assuming there will then be an option for 'Send to', then send it to 'Documents'.

And then renter the path on that message, and it should save the configurations if my theory is right - because the desktop isn't really a directory.

Sorry if that wasn't 5-year-old-ish, lol I can't really explain it otherwise.

I deleted VizzedRGR from my desktop earlier this week, when I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest plugin.

I don't know what you mean by (right-click on the) installer. I understand the installer to be when I click, on a Vizzed page, on the option to download the latest plugin version. Other than that, the only thing on my computer that I can think might be the installer is the Open Plugin Data Folder in C:/Programs, which I've been unable to successfully run for needing an alternate path. I right-clicked on it, Sent it to My Documents, copied the location (C/Program Files/ Vizzed/Vizzed Retro Game Room/), which is the same location as the Open Plugin Data Folder. I pasted it in the box for Alternate Path. It didn't work.

Also, the Open Plugin Data Folder is, apparently, a shortcut and not a program file. When I clicked on "Properties" for the Open Plugin Data Folder icon, and clicked the  "General" tab at the top of the properties dialog box,  the location was listed as C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Vizzed Retro Game Room. I pasted this into the alternate path box. It didn't work. 

Shouldn't I be able to find, on my hard drive, the VizzedRGRplugin v.1.63? It has to be there, or I wouldn't be able to play games, right?

Should I uninstall and reinstall the new plugin again?

Thanks,

IDOJ

IDOJ : If the installer is in My Documents type

C:\Documents and Settings\"your windows account name"\My Documents\

Does that work? Are you on Windows XP, Vista, or 7?

I have Windows XP.

I have used the path you're suggesting, and it didn't work.

I re-searched my hard drive, including Hidden Files, whatever they are and why ever it is that they're hidden. The results included more than a dozen Vizzed-related files, but I haven't gone through them to check their properties for locations.

Right now, I'm using Google Chrome. Normally, I use IE, version 9, I think, to play Vizzed games. I'm not sure if this matters.

I'll have to put together a list of the Hidden files I found, and try their locations as alternate paths.

Again... Should I delete all of the Vizzed files from my computer, and then re-install the new plugin? Maybe that way my computer would only have the most recent, necessary files, including however it is that saved states work now.

Thanks,

IDOJ

IDOJ : I've recently discovered that when the plugin installer is deleted from your pc, the Plugin Data Folder is no longer accessible.

If you're using win xp, that makes this a whole lot easier because I am as well; depending on which browser you're using, you'll be able to set where downloads are saved to through the options at the top of that browser.

For example, I'm using Firefox 11, if I go to Tools > Options, on the General Tab there's an option there for where my downloads are saved to - I have that set to "Downloads" folder.

So you'll have to redownload the installer I suppose and then enter the path

C:\Documents and Settings\"my windows account name"\My Documents\Downloads\

as for my own problem with it not working because I deleted it from my downloads folder, I have no idea because I didn't write the code for this.

Hope that helps somewhat.

I did try what you suggested in my web browser Options tab, changing the location to which downloads will be stored on my computer when I download them, but I'm back to being unable to uninstall VizzedRGR. The dialog box telling me that I need an alternate path pops up when I try to uninstall.
I did another hard drive search, and found this address: C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/NAME%20NAME/Local%20Settings/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/Content.IE5/936ZSUKW/vizzed_com[1].
h. It didn't work as an alternate path. 

I'm guessing I'll have to wait for an instructional youtube video, if you're going to eventually make one. 

None of this makes any sense. The fact that I was able to download the new plugin, and play games using it, suggests to me that it must be on my computer somewhere, probably in the location that I'm unable to use as a "path," even though that's where the file is on my computer.

Any other suggestions? 

Thanks,

IDOJ

Anyone still there?

I ran a search including hidden files, and deleted every vizzed file from my computer. Still, and it doesn't show up in any search, VizzedRGR appears in the list of programs I that I can add or remove.

There isn't a version of it in my C:/Program Files/

When I try to remove it, from the add/remove programs list, I get the following message: There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to be complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor.

More information from the add/remove list suggested I contact the program's vendor. 

I can't play games on vizzed now, and can't remove this file from my computer. I'm going to try to re-install the new plugin, again.

Any ideas?

IDOJ : I'd say try and reinstall it and see if it gives that message about a network resource being unavailable. If it does, my theory is that the installer will have to be in the same directory it was originally downloaded to. That will probably be a problem; you can try 2 things to uninstall it so it may be reinstalled.

1) The simplest way is to have a program uninstall it for you. I'd recommend you try CCleaner for this. It can be downloaded here:
http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

and you'll use the Uninstaller as seen here (by selecting the program and clicking Run Uninstaller)



If that fails (which I don't see why it would), you'll have to manually delete it from your registry.

You can easily access the Registry Editor by typing regedit in the Start Menu’s 'Run...' for Windows XP.

In the Edit drop-down, click Find. On the box that pops up it will say 'Look at' with 3 check-boxes, those should all be checked, then type vizzedrgr and click Find Next. For every Key, Value and Data that it finds matching vizzedrgr there will be 'Name', 'Type' and 'Data' on the right side of the Editor. If it says vizzedrgr under 'Data', right-click and delete it. Then click Find Next again and repeat the process until all have been deleted.

Be careful though not to delete anything that doesn't have vizzedrgr under 'Data'. (last edited by tRIUNE on 03-30-12 08:16 PM)

IDOJ : That's a simple task - go to Start Menu > All Programs and there should be Windows Update listed towards the top of the list. If not here's the url:
http://www.update.microsoft.com

It only works with Internet Explorer which you'll see if you try to go to that link while using another browser.

You'll want to click the Express Install.

I was able to reinstall the new plugin using IE. There weren't any Microsoft updates available, and I have updated my java.

I still can't use Saved State. It reads, when I press F2, Saved But Local Only.

I'll have to read through whatever posts there are about saving. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,

IDOJ
