Problems with fraps

not a clue what could be wrong with it. it wont record video or take snapshots. i know it works because i can change the overlay corner position but it wont do anything else.

im trying to do it with WoW (World of Warcraft)

now i cant even get the program to run

Maybe you can try E.M. Game Capture to record WOW, I’m using it, and it works well.
