milkshape textures don't work anymore

Hey, i worked with milkshape before, also with textures, and they worked, but now all of a sudden in milkshape when i try to add a texture to a group the group just stays gray. The ball where in the material menu does display the image, but it looks like i am not able to assign it.
Any idea what’s the problem?

It sound like you are asking about inner working of milkshape we cant answer that. OR is this problem with egg loading?
