Yeah, it happened already with a previous version of FlipCams where Avast AV suddenly started finding some virus. In fact it wasn't FlipCams only, but also Autohotkey and every executable built with it. By then, all I had to do to get rid of those alerts was to rebuild those exe with the latest version of Autohotkey. So when I have a moment, I'll try to do the same again.
Are these alerts you get really intrusive? Do they pop up up when you switch cameras and bring you back to the desktop, for example?
So, I've been trying to run this program once I got Windows 7...but I have a problem.
Initially it was the well-known OS bug that it doesn't recognise you as admin when you run an .exe file. After I managed to give myself full permissions, it came up with an error message (under windows XP compatibility mode)...check picture 1
So, I decided to uninstall it, and when reinstalling it, it gave me this message (check pictures 2 and 3) saying that my LFS was corrupt and had no "Data" folder, when while browsing it IT CLEARLY HAD A BLOODY DATA FOLDER!!!
It's a pity that such a great app has gone terribly wrong with this OS...
I recently had a problem when i open up lfs and lfs says
fc_runCam1 : line 2 - Parameter is not valid
Flipcams doesnt work now Tried reinstalling flipcams aswell
Also flipcams.exe doesn't exist in my LFS folder also
To those on Window 7 who have problems with the installer, sorry, I don't use Windows 7 so I can't test/fix it.
But there's a possible workaround to try, that is installing it by hand:
1. open the "parts" folder in your "FlipCam-1.0.3-Install" folder
2. copy "FlipCam.exe" and paste it at the root of your LFS folder
3. copy the 11 files whose names start with "fc_" and paste them into \LFS\data\script folder.
4. open autoexec.lfs from the same folder and add "/run fc_runCam1" (without the quotes) at or near the top of it
5. launch LFS, go to Options > Controls > CTRL +
6. click on CTRL + F11 and type "/run fc_runCam5" (without the quotes) and click OK
7. click on CTRL + F12 and type "/run fc_runCam2" and click OK
That should get it installed and working with the CTRL+F11/CTRL+F12 hot keys (if it works at all). Change steps 7 and 8 if you want to use different hot keys.
If it doesn't work, try to quit LFS and double-click FlipCams.exe. What happens, then?
I followed all those steps, and it worked at first, but when I changed cameras it came up with a message saying there were no views_cam folders for the camera I chose, and that Flipcams was going to create it.
But then after I changed to every camera, one by one, it always came up with this message, even when LFS launched: "Error: Cannot determine the current view. Make sure LFS's data folder contain the "views" folder and four "views_cam" folders." This also happened when I ran Flipcams.exe.
yup. Well, it actually had no "views" folder, it had 5 "views_cam" folders instead. Not to mention that after that message, I couldn't do anything else with the keyboard, it's as if LFS had forgotten all hotkeys, I couldn't even open the options menu!
