As you know, im working on installation programs to install TDM on several os'ses.
My goal is to create installers, so everybody can install TDM on their system, without any problems (and avoiding beginner problems).
(see Graphical installer and moddb page)
For the version 2.06, im updating the tdm-installer - windows, with some requested features.
If you can spare some time, please help me to test it and let me know your opinions about it.
I added the following features.
- 64 bit detection (shortcuts, files)
- Write permissions to darkmod folder (on the users selection)
- VC studio installer (only download, for now)
- Steam nonsteam-game shortcuts.
To test each feature, do the following things:
Download the most recent version of the installer from my google drive.
and do the following optional tests:
Testing 64 bit detection
To test this feature, just use this installer and look for 64 bit files and shortcuts to them.
Test - set write permissions on darkmod folder
The installer creates TDM folder in a specified location and set write permissions to it.
To check it, start installer, install the game files, close the updater, rightclick the darkmod folder > properties > tab security. select "users" and check if it has "full control".
Check also if the updater downloads files to this folder and if tdm mission downloader can download a mission.
Test - vc++ studio installer
In this testversion, the installer downloads only the vc++ installation package, for the detected 32 of 64 bit system
Start installer, select option "test - install vc++ shortcut".
The installer downloads the installation package into the darkmod folder.
Check if the vc++ packages is downloaded for your system (if it is x86 or 64 bit)
Test - nonSteam-game shortcut in Steam
This option adds a nonsteame-game shortcut in steam. (but without icons, banners, etc)
This start steam, open in the steam client our community page and open a selection list, where the user have to select the tdm and tdm-updater..
Start installer, select option "test - steam shortcut".
After the installation of the files, the installer starts steam and ask you to login.
If you do this, the our community page appears and a messagebox with instructions you have to follow.
close the message box and check if the the selection list appears.
