I have a new problem: I have exported my program as a cdf standalone. I changed the view of the graphic and now the sliders cant be used anymore. Very strange... Here is a screenshot: screenshot

The orange frame is the reason. The mouse still remains in the graphic. How can I solve this problem?

    $\begingroup$ what happens when you move the mouse using your hand and move the slider? Are you saying the mouse does not move? Also, when you say I have a new problem does this mean you have another post before on this and this is a follow up? If so, can you put a link to the original question? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Nasser The day a programming bug can cause the mouse to physically adhere to my desk is the day I stop using computers. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I received an internal bug report indicating that the underlying code was the same as referenced in this question. If so, this is not a bug. The code was something of the form Manipulate[Graphics3D[Cone[], ViewPoint -> RotationMatrix[t, {0, 0, 1}].{1.3, -2.4, 2}], {t, 0, 2 Pi}], and the report was that rotating the graphic causes the slider to be ineffective. If that's the problem here, then it's as designed. Rotating the graphic wipes the ViewPoint option, which breaks the connection with the slider. $\endgroup$

The question seems to be expounded somewhat and also answered in a comment by John Fultz:
