There is a red circle with a line, in the button

This sign means the scene file which has been linked to the button is not present anymore.

Why this happen
It usually happens when you insert a scene file from another lightshow. Then the software has no other choice to store the absolut path instead of the relative path. The lightshow will work ok until you move it to another computer.
It is same as when you insert a picture in a word processing software with the option "link to file". Please read this for more understanding: https://www.labnol.org/software/insert- ... ents/8144/

Please note that this feature (insert scene files from an external lightshow) may be sometimes required, because the key point is when you change it in its original lightshow, it is automatically updated in the other lightshow.

You can check if the path is relative or absolute in the file "../YourLightshow/Live/live.ini". For instance, if you read
[page1_button3]
line = 3
column = 1
name = movingheads/scene1.scex
title = scene1

There must be a scene called "scene1.scex" in the folder "../YourLightshow/scenes/movingheads/".

Example of relative path: "movingheads\scene1.scex"
Example of absolut path: "C:\Documents and Settings\YourAccount\TheLightingController\LightShows\YourLightshow\scenes\movingheads\scene1.scex"

To avoid that
In order to keep your lightshow transportable to another computer:
- the Steps files must be stored in the folder (or subfolder of) "../YourLightshow/scenes/"
- the Generator files must be stored in the folder (or subfolder of) "../YourLightshow/Editor/Generator/projects/"
- the Pixels files must be stored in the folder (or subfolder of) "../YourLightshow/Editor/Pixels/projects/"
