Well, I'm of to a great start when it comes to installing community made stuff. So, basically, I was just installing the Community Map Pack, except instead of being logical and intelligent by digging into the Paraworld folder, then installing it in the Maps folder, I just placed it in the Paraworld folder. As in, the one that contains every other folder related to the game. So, when I started the game, I noticed nothing changed. I went back, realizing my mistake and started by moving only one map to the appropriate folder. Started the game, and it worked. Then came what I believe is the mistake. I selected every file in the Paraworld folder besides the text ones and moved them, first to Data, then to Base, then to Maps, then to Multiplayer. I started the game again, or at least, I tried. Instead of starting normally, an error popped up saying
Quote:
Scanning for data files revealed no valid location.
The game will now perform a broader scan and show you the result.
Depending on system speed, this may take upto a minute.
Please see your personal config file at
C:/Documents and settings/*my username on the computer*.*my username again, this time in caps*ONE/Application Data/SpieleEntwicklungsKombinat/Paraworld/Settings.cfg.section Pest/Global/UrsRelPath.

(I did not manage to find this file, BTW)

Anyway, so then I pressed OK, after which this error popped up:
Quote:
Unable to locate data directory

The standard layout for the game directories looks like this:

Root/
bin/
<executables>
Data/
ursel_data.txt
Base/
Locale/

Please check your installation.


So then the first thing I tried was to put everything I just put in the map folder back in the Paraworld folder before starting the game again. But that fixed nothing. Still the same messages. So then the last thing I could think of was to uninstall the game, and then reinstall it. Unfortunately, when I clicked in the uninstall button, another error came. This time it said
Quote:
Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\PROFES~1\RunTime\11\50\Intel32\Ctor.dll

The specified module could not be found.


So. Is there anything I can do, or should I just give up and try on a different computer?

What's teamviewer? Either way, I've never seen or heard of it before, so I probably don't have it unless someone snuck it on my PC.

That's the problem. I can't uninstall it, so I can't reinstall it either.

Use revo uninstaller it can search for files and registry keys from installs even if the uninstaller is corrupted

So, I installed Revo Uninstaller (Heh. How ironic), but when I open it, Paraworld isn't listed amongst my other games and programs. In fact, even when I searched specifically for it, it didn't show up.


So, anything else I could try, or am I just gonna have to install Paraworld on a different computer?
