Frequently Asked Questions
Can I reuse any of the images, graphics or videos on the CD-ROM?
No. We have spent a lot of time and money to assemble this collection of information. Although some of these images are from government sources, you are prohibited from using the images, graphics, and videos on the CD-ROM in any fashion.
The movies do not play smoothly?
Use the QuickTime Player application to play QuickTime's sample movie. If this movie stutters you may need to adjust your system's configuration for proper playback. Consult www.apple.com for further assistance.
I don't hear any audio when the movies play?
Not all movies have audio. If you see a speaker icon on the left side of the controller, the movie has audio. Use the QuickTime Player application to play QuickTime's sample movie. If this movie stutters you may need to adjust your system's configuration for proper playback. Consult www.apple.com for further assistance.
Why can't I view the movies using the QuickTime Player?
Many of the movies were specially licensed for use on the Atomic Archive CD-ROM. As such we have disabled their playback under normal QuickTime Players.
Where did the program install?
The program automatically installs in the Program Files directory.
I get a "Where is ...Intro.dxr" dialog when I run the program?
Make sure that you are running Atomic Archive from the same CD-ROM drive that you installed it from. To change this do the following:
1. Locate and open the AArchive.ini file in the Atomic Archive directory in your Program Files directory.
2. Change the second line to reflect the drive letter of the CD-ROM drive you wish to use, and save the file
[CD-ROM Drive Letter]
The images just 'pop' onscreen?
Make sure that you are running Atomic Archive in 16 bit (High Color) or better.
I get a "Can't create C:/Temp" error under Windows?
Becauses the program installs temporary items at runtime, Atomic Archive needs write access to the Windows system directory.
