Vizard not detecting PPT


I'm currently using Vizard 3.0 and executing some code following the format within the PPT documentation. However, whenever I run my code, I get an error message saying "Failed to connect to PPT on local machine". I've toggled the "Talk" button in PPT many times, but to no avail. I'm wondering what could have caused this error and how I can fix it. Thanks!

What version of PPT are you using and which output plugins do you have active?

I'm currently using PPT Studio 2008 and using VRPN 7 as the output.

What if PPT and Vizard are on different PCs? Somehow the Vizard didn't get any data from PPT
Anyone can help?

Add the VRPN 7 output plug-in in PPT Studio.

Make sure all firewalls and virus scanners are disabled on both the PPT and rendering machines.

Place marker 1 in the tracking area and press Talk.

In Vizard run the following code, replace hostname with the name of your PPT machine:
import viz

vrpn = viz.add('vrpn7.dle')
tracker = vrpn.addTracker('PPT0@hostname',0) 

gallery = viz.addChild('gallery.ive'), viz.MainView)
