Default Re: Windows 10

ones that will still have the old path as described above, including "program files" in the path.

new ones will have c:\shrapnel games\the camo workshop\ in the path - no mention of "program files".

run your installer till it comes to the screen asking where to install. If it has c:\program files\shrapnel games\the camo workshop\ as the installation path then you have an older CD install therefore you need to edit that so as to delete program files\ from the path string.

If not, and it is a newer one (no reference to program files) then you are good to go

IF
you have the old style path, a simple way to do it without manually editing the path string (and possibly not doing it right) is to proceed as follows:
1) On verifying it is the old path, with the invalid path name (includes "program files" simply exit the install process

2) Now run one of the patch installers, to the same point where it is asking where to put the files.

3) Now copy that new path from the installer and exit the patch installer. You now have the new path in your Windows paste buffer.

4) Now go back to the CD installer and once again proceed till the installation path is shown. Now, select the entire path and paste in the copied path you retrieved from the patch file that is in the windows paste buffer so replacing the old path with the new one you just copied off the patch installer.

5) proceed with the CD install, then do the patches - the patches will all have the newer path you pasted over the initial CD install path.

(I am assuming that you know "windows 101" stuff as to how to select, copy and paste strings!)
