I was having this problem, searched and found nothing.
I finally contacted Microsoft by phone and told them the problem.
All I had to do was uninstall the software, then reboot in "clean mode"
(meaning no startup programs and everything BUT the microsoft programs shut off). I then reinstalled the program to it's default folder (where program wants to be installed) and it works fine. I have since allowed the startup programs etc. to run.

Give that a try, and hopefully it will work for you too.
If this helps, please pass on the information. There are MANY people having this same problem.


I have also been told about these...(though I haven't tried them yet)

HI,

Macromedia Projector is a utility from Adobe (formerly Macromedia) which
bundles up a Flash visual presentation into a stand-alone EXE file, so you
can display the images on a PC without the Flash Player installed. Your
anatomy CD-ROM probably used Macromedia Projector to display its anatomy
pictures.

Macromedia Projector is not compatible with Vista. In order to run the
program, you need to set the Compatibility to a previous version of Windows.

In Explorer, find the main EXE file on the CD-ROM which runs the anatomy
program. Right-click the EXE file and choose Properties from the context
menu. The Properties dialogue will appear. Choose the Compatibility Tab.
Check the checkbox in Compatibility Mode, for "Run this program in
compatibility mode for:" and choose and earlier version of Windows - Windows
98 would be a good one to try. Then click OK to save the changes. Now
double-click the EXE file, to launch the program.

Once you have set the Compatibility, Windows Vista should "remember" to run
the program in compatibility mode, so hopefully you only need to do this
once.

Macromedia projector has stopped


You might try reinstalling Macromedia Projector (now Adobe Flash).

Sometimes if you use compatibility mode to run the game:
  • Click - Start, Programs, Accessories, Program Compatibility Wizard.
  • Follow the prompts to set up the compatibility mode.
  • Use Windows 98 compatibility, and disable visual themes.
Also you could change Apple Quicktime to run video in Safemode:
Quicktime Player > Edit > Quicktime Preferences > Advanced > and under Video Change from DirectX to Safe Mode (GDI)

You may need to reinstall Quicktime, but uninstall the old version first.
