Pin Dmd Not Found Error

Recommended Posts

Since I upgraded my .dll and Pinmame (2.6) I was getting this error. It seems Use DMD is checked for everything in my settings. I tried the registry fix, and going in through setup. Isn't there a way to do this at a global level, instead of each individual table?

 

Edit: Nevermind... I found the "replace all".

Hi,

 

I'm getting this same error on my cabinet.  I have a DMD so I want to continue using it. 

 

What is the registry fix?

 

Thanks,

Dave

Assuming you do not have real PINDMD hardware

 

click on Windows button and type in regedit

navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Freeware\Visual PinMame

Right click on the "Visual Pinmame" and select export

Export it to VP.reg

Close the windows registry

 

Make a copy of VP.reg so you have a backup, in case you mess something up

Open the VP.reg with notepad

Now search and replace all instance of      "showpindmd"=dword:00000001 with "showpindmd"=dword:00000000

Save the reg file

Now double click reg file and say Yes to import the file

Thanks.  I ended up backing up the reg file / branch and deleting all of the games except for defaults and global.  Worked like a charm.  Now they all pickup the default settings and re-seed themselves.  I had originally searched for "pindmd not found" so I didn't see this show up until I searched for "dmd not found" since there was a space between "pin" and "dmd".

 

Anyway, this issue had me puzzled for a couple of days.  Silly of me to think default settings meant default settings!

 

Appreciate the details.

 

Thanks,

Dave
