Things to check:
- Program loads up without errors
- A mod can be loaded without errors
I would just like to make ensure that everything works so far.
Next beta will have mod loading/saving and UCS loading/saving.

- It opens fine until the welcome screen ("what do you want to do...").
- I tried to load a mod made for WA and one made for 1.4, which are both working in-game. Both resulted in the application crashing to desktop before finishing to load the mod : it gets to the point wher eyou have a tree beginning to build on the left, and a window with several choices that opens.
I tried to install the 3 files in the Dawn of War toot folder or in the ModTools root folder, and got the same results.
I run on WinXP Pro service pack2, with all the latest patches from Microsoft.
I have all the required V6 files and dll.
Athlon 64 3200, 2.21 GHz
RAM : 2 Gb
14 Gb of free space on the HD I installed the exe in.
It installed on disk C, where is also the Windows system and the Dawn of War folder.
Hope this helps.

The files can be put anywhere btw, they will automatically find the DoW folder and stuff.

- If a mod is missing an optional .module file entry, application will no longer crash

Anyway, I'll make sure I have the downloads you require. I just found this funny considering the file is in the same directory as the exe, heh.

I assume oyu are running Windows 98 finadeath - the error message is a bit misleading becuase it is actually DLL not found OR DLL failed to load. I think that you need advapi32.dll to be in the tool's forolder or in system32 - you can grab it from the beta download page.
Or try beta 0.1.2 - I've changed the DLL to use ole32.dll instead of oleaut32.dll. Now all the DLLs that rainman needs are also needed by DoW, meaning that relic will have already ensured that they are on your system

It opens the mods it failed to open before.
The mod opens, the tree is displayed, the module file can be accessed and displays correct informations, the tree displays the correct files.
The program ws closed with the "quit" buttons and closed with no error.
I have not attempted to edit anything, though...

I have WinXP with all updates, and I'm using the beta 0.12.

An error #48 is:
The file IS a DLL, it IS a windows DLL, therefore either one of the DLLs that it references is missing or isn't in Path (Path is current directory, application's directory, system32 and system). So, could you check if/where these DLLs are on your system:
* The file isn't DLL-executable.
If the file is a source-text file, it must be compiled and linked to DLL executable form.
* The file isn't a Microsoft Windows DLL.
Obtain the Microsoft Windows DLL equivalent of the file.
* The file is an early Microsoft Windows DLL that is incompatible with Microsoft Windows protect mode.
Obtain an updated version of the DLL.
* The DLL references another DLL that isn't present.
Obtain the referenced DLL and make it available to the other DLL.
* The DLL or one of the referenced DLLs isn't in a directory specified by your path.
Move the DLL to a referenced directory or place its current directory on the path.

I installed all your required d/l's, so I'm not really sure what else to do.
Posted 15 January 2006 - 10:08 PM
Edit: Also try downloading and running path.exe to the same place you downloaded the mod studio and posting the results.

I even tried copying all the dll's to the Mod Studio dir, and same thing.
Here's what's in the directory ATM, anyone else have any ideas?

Perhaps there is something else missing. I am betting you need adminstrator rights to run the program (bad Corsix!) but I'm an admin anyway.
I'm not going to disable my firewall and virus scanner to test compatibility. This tool should be all independant anyway
If I knew VB (which I don't, and would rather not learn), I'd help and try and look at the source if you put it out.
Its probably something partly obvious, I've no idea what.

I've uploaded a file called FullInstall.zip to the beta site which is a setup program generated by the VB Application Deployment wizard, so that _should_ ensure that all the required DLLs are present and up to date.
Posted 16 January 2006 - 09:44 PM
Also, I forgot to post the Path.exe results earlier.
Posted 16 January 2006 - 10:03 PM
Edit: Whoops, made a small typo in path.exe that made it try and load "rainmain.dll" instead of "rainman.dll" - thus it would always fail. Could you D/L and run it again, but only post the error code.

Sooo, it works! Hallelujah!
I loaded a few mods, save & quit, no probs.
Thanks, and I'll do some more poking around tonight.
Oh, and a little spelling thing on one of the tabs, it's "compatible".

Spelling wise, I used what I found in hte module files:
;; ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ;; List of mods that have scenarios compatible with this mod ;; CompatableMod.1 =But then again, it does use both spellings (compatible in the comment, compatable in the code). I'll update it to use an i instead of an a.
