Now that the semester has wound down and I have some time on my hands, I thought I'd look into a problem that's been affecting me for awhile now.
Times past, I configured TDM and DR, and they were all fine. TDM worked when it was installed on my desktop, and DR found it and wrote to the folder with no issues. That was before upgrading to TDM 2.06 and DR 2.6.0 x64. Ever since then, I've been getting errors from DR.
Two major things appear to be broken: the particle system and the readable editor. I get the following errors from them:
This is strange, because previously all my settings worked without complaint. I also think this may have something to do with TDM 2.06, as previous versions of DR also threw these errors, where they hadn't with TDM 2.05. For reference, here are my DR path settings:
I don't have a mission set, because I tend to hop back and forth between projects. Again, I previously had no problems with this.
Also noteworthy is this is happening on two separate machines, one with Windows 7 64-bit and one with Windows 10 64-bit installed. The Windows 10 version would even crash sometimes when these errors came up, though I don't currently have the error logs for them.
Am I just an idiot and doing something wrong here? On my one Windows 10 machine, I've tried repeatedly reinstalling everything in different places, and I still got these errors.
I do have one more, brand new Windows 10 machine, completely untouched, that I want to try installing everything on, though I'd appreciate help in doing so as I'm afraid of setting things up incorrectly and getting these errors again. If possible, I'd also like to fix my Windows 7 installation, though that will have to wait since I won't have access to that machine for a spell.
So, any ideas on what's causing these errors? And how to I correctly install TDM and DR, if indeed I've been setting it up wrong?
