Full Version: Shockwave/ROTR problem
SWR Productions Forum > Community > The Databank

Hey, I have a problem with trying to run Shockwave and Rotr. I have First Decade on Vista, I installed it correctly, it seems to run fine, I made sure shockwave and rotr were installed correctly. For shockwave, when I go to the launcher, I keep clicking launch, but nothing happens, it doesn't even exit the launcher. When I go to try Rotr, the black box that usually appears showed up for one second, then disappears and nothing else happens. Does anyone have a solution or confirm if I did it right or wrong??

Vista doesn't get on with SWR Mods for some reason.

Did you install/run the files as an Administrator?

You have to re-install the mods as Picky said using administrator privileges.

install decade pack in any other folder apart from the program files folder. Windows security feature prevents apps running as non admin from making any changes to any file in the program folder. shockwave and rotr launcher need that access to renmae the gmae files so thats the source of the problem. Just install decade pack in C:\Games or something.

ah ha i can help you first thing you do is copy the Command & Conquer™ Generals Zero Hour folder to a new folder in documents call it games then install the mods but make sure you point them to this C:\Users\Your name here\Documents\games: then run it you do not have to run it as administrator it work for me and it should work for you * also* you need to do this proses for all the c&c tfd game that you want modded like Ra 1 & 2, renegade , and tibirim sun and so forth
