Problem Using Created Skins

Post by fullbug » Sun Sep 07, 2008 2:12 pm

Hi, I'm using Avant 11.6 build 20, and using Avant Browser Skin Factory 2.0, and when trying to use a very basic skin I have created, when I put the finished skin in the avant skin folder and restart Avant I get the error message seen below....
Dont understand this as I'm using the latest stable build, also the skins work in Orca, but Orca crashes on me so much that I cant handle using it until it is improved....
Any idea what the problem is?
Thanx....

I was going to suggest to redownload skin maker and try again but you say it works in Orca. That kind of baffled me. Maybe upload the problem skin here so we can have a look...

Hmmm, to be sure I re-download the skin maker, and now it doesnt work in Orca either, get the same error, stii want me to upload a skin (Do I have to do that according to the stuck thread on how to upload skins? Or just upload the skin file here?)
The only changes I am making to the skins are the top and bottom colors....
