Important “Life Of” Tech Notes:
The programs in this series were preset to a display size of 640 x 480 –which means it will look small on higher resolution monitors. Fortunately, in XP, Vista and Windows 7/8 and Windows 10 you can RIGHT click the program’s startup icon, select Properties | Compatibility and then select “run in 640 x 480 mode.” This will switch your resolution to 640 x 480 each time you run the program and make this program’s graphics appear full screen. You can also read our “how to zoom your display size” article for an easy tip.
You MUST remember to install Quicktime version 2.1 found on the CD in order to run the Bible Time Theater video clips in these CDs. (They wont’ work with newer versions of Quicktime and not to worry… you can have multiple versions of Quicktime on your system.)
When installing Quicktime 2.1 on Vista, or Windows 7, 8 or 10, when the installer asks if you want to ‘search’ for other versions of Quicktime, select NO or SKIP. If you select ‘yes’ the installation will hang.
Depending on your setup/permissions, you may need to RIGHT CLICK the Quicktime “qt32″ file and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR to execute the Quicktime installation.
In XP, depending on certain computer settings, you may have to tweak the computer’s virtual memory setting to run these CDs. View the README file on the CD for details. Or consult our support page for details (this memory glitch was fixed in Vista).
