Can't install Sandstorm

Post by jo » Wed May 16, 2018 2:24 pm

Hi everybody,

I just downloaded the new DLC Sandstorm, but wasn't able to install. The program demands the version 6.1.7. I have version 5.3.0. But where ist this new version? I tried automatic upgrader, but here I was told, that I need version 6.1.7 to run the automatic upgrading routine. (?) Any ideas? Can anybody help?

Thanks,
Jo

Thanks Terminator!

Jo, I'll find out why you're getting that issue with the updater

Extract the files. Don't run the exe inside the unzip program.

Having a heck of a time.


First of all, I am being prompted for about 50 or 60 files that "are in use." Next, even after extracting, I only have one file. Inside the .zip folder are two, but the second one will not open at all. Even if I browse to its path, I get a Windows pop-up asking me if I want to check the Store for a program that will open it. I need a break. Will try again later.

richfed, if you're going that route (which I did), when you get the Windows Store popup just close it or hit enter (I can't remember which I did). The install then continued and completed. As far as files in use, make sure OOB is closed, not running, that I did not see at all during install.

I finally had success. I ended up creating a new folder to unzip to. I installed from the .exe file in that new folder and *presto* - INSTALLED! Pays off to do things when your mind is focused.

I also finally managed to get the Upgrade done and the game is running. Thank you very much for your help. :D

I can't get the upgrade to download fully. It keeps cutting out on me. Is this a known problem? I ordered the disk as well. Is the upgrade on the disk? Very frustrating.

In fact I click on the upgrade and it keeps taking me back to the upgrade page.

Like already pointed in this thread you can install it manually. You can download from the member's area or from the post below:
