    Default XXP_Introduction_Page

    New to XDP and just installed the trial.

    How can I eliminate the XXP_Introduction_Page.xar everytime I open the program?

    Thanks.

    Bruce

    P.S. I located the file and deleted it but it keeps getting created and opens when I start the program.

    It has been a long time since I first opened the app, so I'm not really sure but have you tried to close the file in XDP and only then quit the program?

    Yes, I closed the "unwanted" file (no files are opened) and re-opened XDP....the "unwanted" file still gets opened.

    If I add another file, the new file gets opened along with the "unwanted" file is also opened.

    Can you just close or delete it?

    I've deleted the "unwanted" file on my computer but it keeps getting re-created.

    If I "save as" it still opens the original unwanted file (creates a new copy).

    you cannot stop it unless you are prepared to block the programs access to the internet [in firewall] - or work offline

    it will be regenerated otherwise even if you delete it

    No program should need this but clearly MagiXara think a Trial is different to a paid product.

    I do suspect the regeneration could be down to the use stuck OLEs.

    @OP - Close the application.
    Re-run as Administrator - this sorts out Object Linking and Embedding (Library functions).
    Close the offending file.
    Close the application.
    Run as normal.

    If it persists then it is a MagiXara "feature" to nag you while you are Trialling - very trialling.

    Do let us know if you get it sorted.

    you may be right re OLE

    I have no respect left for magix..they just seem to think if they 'shout loud enough' they will 'get their own way'...

    I've tried everything and no luck.

    I'm currently waiting on a firewall software response on how to block a file from opening.

    Thanks.

    Change the default startup file:

    FILE > SAVE TEMPLATE - Pick (or make) a blank file and check the USE AS DEFAULT TEMPLATE checkbox.

    OR alternately ...

    Delete all the content on that file and re-save it blank.
