 This may also happen on slower systems. you will need to extend the time to keep the player in focus after launch. go to **vpx emulator setup** and modify a line in the launch script. You will see a line like 'vpxstarter.exe 10 10 60' you want to change that to 'vpxstarter 10 15 60'… you can even try 20 instead of 15 if focus issues still happen. This may also happen on slower systems. you will need to extend the time to keep the player in focus after launch. go to **vpx emulator setup** and modify a line in the launch script.

 Windows doesn't know how to open the text file called: pupMenusScript.pup You will need to do this once only, go into your PinUP System folder and double click on pupMenuScript.pup. Windows will ask you how to open, select notepade or your favourite text editor… and press 'always use'. Afterwards that button will work when pressed. Windows doesn't know how to open the text file called: pupMenusScript.pup You will need to do this once only, go into your PinUP System folder and double click on pupMenuScript.pup.

 You need to fully understand how MEDIA SEARCH field works on a game (in game manager). Popper will use that field to find media for that game, if you want it to be EXACT then Blank/Clear/Empty out the MediaSearch field. If the field is BLANK then it will do an exact media file match to the tablename. If you still want to use the wildcard search of the MediaSearch field make sure it it contains a '*' like batman* . You need to fully understand how MEDIA SEARCH field works on a game (in game manager).

 +**I get a message about PINUPDISPLAY.exe has crashed when i start or exit an emulator (game).**

 +VLC dll may crash if your GPU,TV,EMULATOR does stuff that may crash it while its playing videos at launch/close.  Things to check:
 +
 +First try and see if running your emulator in NON full-screen exclusive mode fixes the problem.  (borderless windows).
 +
 +If running windows 10,  right-click on emulator exe and see the compatiblity looks like this (no checkbox on fullscreen opt)
 +
 +{{:8d7e983f6b2cd85f9ce45a7f9d1168a5.png}}
 +
 +If you must run Fullscreen exclusive make sure you set your emulator to the SAME screen resolution and refresh rate as windowed mode.  Don't go from 1920x1080 59hz  to 1920x1080 60hz.  usually if you see the TV do a  black BLINK for a second or two your settings are not optimal/correct.
 +
 +Lastly,  make sure you don't run 10-bit or HDR mode on your screens as that will cause problems of videos playing and changing mid-stream.
