Odamex will not install
« on: March 27, 2017, 20:09:58 »
I've tried to download this multiple times, but the same thing comes up every time! I do not know how to solve this. I have tried redownloading the installer and I still get the error. This message comes up after the very last step; the actual downloading part.

I took a screenshot of the error message so you can see for yourself.

Odd. Maybe it has something to do with needing administrator rights. Have you tried the zip file install?

This looks like an issue with administrator rights for sure. It's trying to modify your registry to add the Odamex demo format as a recognized file type. As Hex suggested above, you can try grabbing the zip file and installing that way. It shouldn't require any sort of admin rights at all on a typical Windows install.
