this is not an error by AM.
start your roms/system in FBA guided by menu dialogue (open your roms by hand).
if still there an error message, your rom-files are corrupt or not supported.
=> contact FBA support
AM Version : 2.2.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : WindowsXP x86 SP3
System : Dell Precision T3500 ; Intel X5650 ; 4GB RAM

Thanks. What do you type from the command line to get your rom to run?

ie:

c:\attractmode\runprogram.exe -fullscreen game.zip

Once you know it runs from the command line, then you can get the parameters correct from within attractmode.

Yes it does, you can run games from the command line.

Check folder name, the default is coleco not colec.
Try deleting workdir path.

command line
D:/Attract Mode 2.2.1/emus/FBA/fba64.exe name

This works for me:
Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1-43
#
executable           \emus\fba\fba.exe
args                 [name]
rompath              \emus\roms_neogeo
romext               .zip
system               Neo Geo
import_extras        \emus\fba\neogeo.xml
exit_hotkey
artwork    flyer           \emus\fba\flyer
artwork    marquee         \emus\fba\marquees
artwork    snap            \emus\fba\videos;\emus\fba\snap
artwork    wheel           \emus\fba\wheel

try [name] instead of [romfilename]
