Sandstorm Download Problems

Post by TSPC37730 » Wed Nov 06, 2019 12:17 am

I just bought OOB Sandstorm. I tried using the download link. It started, but, I ran into a roadblock when I tried to use it. It claims that I have to have version 6.1.7 installed. A link is provided, but it is broken. Version 6.1.7 also appears to be an older version. I currently have version 8.1.0. Any suggestions?

1. Uninstall Order of Battle: WW2
2. Download 7.1.4 setup file from the link below and install the game:
http://ftp.us.matrixgames.com/pub/Order ... v7.1.4.zip
3. Once you have finished downloading the file, please fully unzip the downloaded file "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v7.1.4.zip" to a folder in your Hard Disk.
After unzipping, you should have two extracted files:
"OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v7.1.4.exe"
"OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v7.1.4.2"
4. Run "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v7.1.4.exe".
5. When asked to insert the serial number, please click in the drop down menu "Select a New Product to Install... " and select "Order of Battle: Sandstorm".
Type your "Order of Battle: Sandstorm" serial number.
6. Click in the button "Check Serial".
You should see then the name"Order of Battle: Sandstorm" being added to the list of games displayed in the box named "Setup as detected a valid serial number for:".
7. Do the same for all your other expansions.
8. Then click on the "Next” button in order to proceed with the installation of the game.
