Error Message: Starry Night Small Dome as unable to locate the Renderbox

    Follow

    Problem:

    When opening File ---> Projector Preferences ---> the following error message is produced.

    Error Message: Starry Night Small Dome as unable to locate the Renderbox - Starry Night Small Dome requires a copy of Starry Night Renderbox to be running (Renderbox generates images for the dome projector.) Please start Starry Night Renderbox.

    The error message is produced because Starry Night Small Dome Projector is not running.

    Solution:

    There are two Small Dome applications in the Starry night Small Dome folder:

    1.  SN Small Dome

    2.  SN Small Dome Projector.

    On Windows OS there may also be a Small Dome desktop short-cut that can be used to execute/start up both applications at the same time.

    If the short-cut key does not start the Starry Night Small Dome Projector application then there is an issue.  One Projector start up issue is possible connected to the Windows OS font size.  The Font size affects the monitor resolution.  If the Windows OS font is set to 150% then Small Dome Projector will not start up.  The solution is to revert to Font size 100%.

     

    You will know that that resolution is a problem because Small Dome will also display a caution message at start up that the "minimum resolution requirement" have not been met.
