Subject: Re: Free Format Counter

Date: Sun, 24 Jan 2010 15:49:06 +0100

Do you mean that the ### should represent the number of digits, padded with zeros? In the "counter setup" dialog there are settings for this ("zero padding"), so this is already implemented.

And the rest are the same as your previous email, from earlier today. Did the program still give you the overflow msgbox error, or can you use the presets now?

Can you do some tests for me to see if it happens on only specific files/folders, or all, and on all presets or just some. Does FR show at all? Is FlashRen.exe loaded in the Task Manages process list while the error message is showing?
