erm mine (dumb brain) has not yet figured it out; what was needed to make it work please :) ?

edit: OK, I figured it out too; the Views Slideshow module is just the API; you need one of the additions to make it work (e.g., Views Slideshow: Cycle). I just enabled it, downloaded the required library and it works fine now.

It works only on D6. What happens to D7 installations?

just make sure you enable both options in the Views Slideshow module: Views Slideshow & Views Slideshow Cycle, otherwise you get the framework error

Hi - came here because of the same issue, thanx for the post.
JagPHP - I recon
Views Slideshow Liquid Carousel
Views Slideshow: Galleria
Views Slideshow Xtra
Views Slideshow: Dynamic Display Block
Views Slideshow Configurable Controls
All look like they will work (I have not tried any of yet but like the look of Galleria)

I too was completely baffled as to what this message means. My case was that I had not enabled the "Views Slideshow: Cycle" module on staging environment.

I would propose to improve the message, so that people would have a better idea when this happens what to do, rather than having to hunt in the forums. In _views_slideshow_preprocess_views_slideshow() instead of:

  if (empty($main_frame_module)) {
    drupal_set_message(t('No main frame module is enabled for views slideshow.'), 'error');
  if (empty($main_frame_module)) {
    drupal_set_message(t('No main frame module is enabled for views slideshow. 
    	This is often because another module which Views Slideshow needs is not enabled.
    	For example, 3.x needs a module like "Views Slideshow: Cycle" enabled.'), 'error');

I thought of adding module_exists(views_slideshow_cycle) test, then I thought of adding
"dependencies[] = views_slideshow_cycle" to but I understand that other modules could be used instead of views_slideshow_cycle.

Anyway, a clearer message should help over 90% of people.

For D7 just enable module Views Slideshow: Cycle
