ODBC was a recent problem I have that is unrelated to yours.
the installation process Ulead will notify you that two files are required to
run, at least my installation did.
is just related to the hardware change, I bet its the video
check the manufacturer's website for an updated driver and install if
try turning the setting down.
how much video memory do you have and is is a so called "shared memory" video
system? I have had real problem with the shared systems and don't buy them
Thanks for the prompt replies.
1) I have searched for updates, but there was
nothing that applied to PE4 (that I recognized).
2) I'm operating under W2K. How do I check
whether I have sufficient API's? Is it simply an update to windows,
where missing? I have updated windows since my upgrade. Also the
problem has occurred only after a hardware change, not the OS. I'm not
sure that the ODBC is at fault, because all other applications are running
fine. If it is, how do I check if it is corrupt?
FWIW, I found this statement. "The goal of ODBC is to make it
possible to access any data
from any application
regardless of which database
management system (DBMS)
is handling the data. ODBC manages this by
inserting a middle layer, called a database driver
, between an
application and the DBMS. The purpose of this layer is to translate the
application's data queries
that the DBMS
understands. For this to work, both the application and the DBMS must be
-- that is, the application must be capable of issuing
ODBC commands and the DBMS must be capable of responding to them. Since
version 2.0, the standard supports

Subject: RE: New Motherboard
Ulead requires that two specific API's be installed. This is
normally done by other applications and/or the older flavors of
Windows. I'm not entirely sure that Windows XP actually installs
Ran into a similar problem with XP and corrupt ODBC. Seem that
the old Windows had the ODBC where you could see it. In XP it's under
the hood and hidden in the code.
Don't you just love Micro$oft.
Last weekend (and a beautiful one it was too) I had the joy of
upgrading my motherboard and re-building my system. It went well
with only one glitch that I can't solve.
One of my resident programs, Ulead Photo Express 4.0, now refuses to
execute. It loads into memory OK, but then hangs. It has no
impact that I can see on anything else, It just doesn't work
anymore. I've rebooted, re-installed, searched what few areas of the
registry I'm familiar with, etc ... but no luck :^(
My new board is an Asus P4P800 SE. Could it be that some
software doesn't work on some systems??
