Hello,

 

I am having a file that has to be opened in Encore (Mac – CS4), this file has been created on another system with Mac-CS4. I don’t know why it’s giving the error message stating that it was built on a Windows machine. But the file is not built on windows. What I need to do for this error.

Thanks.

 

The project was created on the windows platform and cannot be opened here. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Hello Goldie

 

I understand your problem . Error of  stating that program  created on a windows machine is due to compilation errors.

Your program is not compiled correctly. Compile the program in Linux and  now  run your program in MAC system.

After compiling in Linux  program will run on windows and in MAC system.

Hi there,

Encore for Mac still has many bugs and the error you're getting is one of them.

I am not sure if the fix has been released or not, so please update your software first to see if that will fix the problem.

There are few simple workarounds if the fix is still not released. 

First would be:

  • Copy the assets from the first mac to the second mac (the one you're getting the error on)
  • Connect to the first computer from the second one and open the project from its original source.
  • A pop up will appear asking you to reconnect media. Confirm and wait while it's done.
  • Save the file on your hard drive and everything will work again.

Another workaround would be to locate the folder that contains Encores cache data. It should be in your project folder.

Find a file named ProjectMedia.acx and open it with a simple text editor.

Find the line at the top of the document: 

Replace "Windows" with "Macintosh" and save the file.

Hello Bond,

Compile your program properly in order to run it on Mac as it was created on Windows operating system.

Run as administrator and then try.

The hing that I would suggest is to update both your video and audio drivers. To tell you if the drivers are up to date, check your model, along with your OS.

Please refer to the following links to fix your problem,
