Updater Crashes Instantly Upon Startup

Recommended Posts

I installed Doom 3 in the following folder,

 

C:\Games\Doom3

 

I install the patch, and the game seems to run fine. I then install the Updater into the following folder,

 

C:\Games\Doom3\darkmod

 

When I start the updater up, it thinks for a moment before flashing an error message. I tried to take a screenshot of the message to show you guys, but it simply moves too fast. I made out the first word as Can't, but other than that, it simply was too fast to make heads or tales of. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game and started the whole process over from scratch several times to try and make it work, but I get the same result every time.

 

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there something evident that I'm missing? Thanks in advance.

Clear out your temp directory. On Vista it's at C:\Users\[your Windows user name]\AppData\Local\Temp. On Windows XP it's at C:\Documents and Settings\[your Windows user name]\Application Data\Local Settings\Temp.

 

You can also find it by clicking Start, then Run, then typing %temp% and pressing Enter.

 

Once there, delete everything you see in that folder.

@other helpers: I've put this solution in the wiki, seems nobody remembered to add it before now.

My games | Public Service Announcement: TDM is not set in the Thief universe. The city in which it takes place is not the City from Thief. The player character is not called Garrett. Any person who contradicts these facts will be subjected to disapproving stares.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
