You're welcome. Glad you got it working.82dawgs wrote:Eureka! It appears that the Read-Only status was the problem.
Reinstalled MH-CEaW Gold. Mb/# files/# folders same as before. The Read-only attribute was set. Unchecked the box and clicked Apply. Then loaded 2.0. New stats 592 Mb (down from before), 17,502 files, 266 folders. ***Note the 13K files I mentioned in last post was typo. Was 17, 561 not 13,561. But maybe that was a good thing
Anyway, no hunt for the Launch.exe. Launch window comes up and game loads. I played around in a couple of scenarios and it looks good.
Thanks much for your time and patience!!!

Good deal! Glad you got it working ... now good luck on your attempt at world domination, or at least, European and North African domination.barteksanok wrote:Hi, i'm new here but thank You very much for help with GS mod. "Read only" status was the problem!
Big respect for makers of this great mod!!!
Sorry but I just saw this post. Yikes ... if you purchased the MH edition version then when you run the GS 2.0 installer it should install to the correct location. A successfully install of GSv2.0 should include the CEaW - Grand Strategy and Grand Strategy Mod folders inside of your vanilla game install. Crashing immediately to desktop for a first install is a strong indication that GS was installed to somewhere else besides inside of the CEaW vanilla install.raydifarrell wrote:I just bought the MH Gold version around 1 Nov 2011. I understood from the Slitherine website where I bought it that download versions would include GS 2.0, but when I run the game, I dont see it. Perhaps I need to enable it somehow?
Or if, as I suspect, GS has not been added, then how do I install it? I downloaded and installed the GS 2.0 but when attempt to run it I get the same problem that others have mentioned with it crashing immediately to desktop.
I have studied carefully your comments here and tried to re-install it several timers according to your instructions in this thread. But I note that my MH Commander Gold file structure is nothing like the one you illustrate in this thread. Perhaps because the thread is labled 'non MH-Gold version'. Where is the thread which tells me how to patch the MH-Gold Version?
I like the vanilla game (it plays fine) so I would really like to try the GS version. Please help.
No. As far as I know GSv2.0 works with every version of CEaW v1.12 (or higher).srimmer1961 wrote:Installing this game is extremely confusing - I suppose I have an unrealistic expectation that if I purchase a game it will be a stand alone and I do not have to delete and/or integrate different versions to get a game working.
After about 15 hours of trying to get the game working I am now at the point that have deleted all previous versions of the game and downloaded from Slitherine the file: CEaW_v1.12_GS_v2.0. which is 233mb in size. However, when I launch this it does not work.
What do I need to do now - do I need to download another related version of the game?
Try unclicking the read only after you install. When you apply make sure you check the box that says apply to subfolders.Noel60 wrote:Iv tried everything you suggested and still cant get 2.0 to load.I tried uninstalling 2.0 and unchecking the read only ,reinstalled it but still no go.When I unclick read only I applied the files as you said,but when I look at properties after that its back to read only.Is that normal?
Is this the PC or MAC version?Noel60 wrote:Ok iv done everything that you said in this tutorial.Whn I click on the shortcut on desk top nothing happens.When I click on the launcher in my Grand strat mod folder its says "error cant find data file.I clicked on read only as you suggested after downloading 2.0 and applied all files as you said.
