I recently installed VTM on a new PC. I've been using it from the command line for several years. With the new install ver 15.1.0.0 I get the following error when I run my batch file:

Ultimate engine failed , making an attempt to use Secondary engine
Engine 2 DxPlay function failed
Engine 2 failed (->3<-)

I got a new key from you a few weeks ago and put it in C:\Users\---\AppData\Local\Video Thumbnails Maker like usual. Tonight I reinstalled ver 15.1 with my antivirus turned off in case that was messing up the install I still get the error.

Thumbnails are created properly with either the Ultimate or Crystal engine if I use the GUI.

How can I get the command line to work again?

Could you please provide an example of the command you are trying to run?

Code: Select all

for %%i in (*.mp4 *.avi *.mkv *.wmv) Do "c:\Users\---\AppData\Local\Video Thumbnails Maker\videothumbnailsmaker.exe" "c:\Users\---\AppData\Local\Video Thumbnails Maker\Options\movies.vtm" "%%i"
I created this batch file in 2016 so it's been working for a long time.
