help with 4.162 install

Recommended Posts

Sorry about this no doubt stupid question. I'm on 4.161 and want to upgrade to 4.162.  I read page 3 of the release notes and just want to be clear about what I have to redo and what I can leave.  I run the uninstaller first. Then I have to reinstall the map packages using a newly downloaded map package installer? I mean - I have to download all the maps again? Or can I use the map package installer I downloaded and kept last time round for 4.161? Or do the maps not get uninstalled at all when I run the uninstall? Is it just the program that's new (4.162) or are there new things in the map package installer too that I would miss out on if I don't re-download all the maps from scratch?  Thanks.

If you already have the map packages from 4.161, just uninstall 4.161, the map packages will remain in situ, download 4.162 and install.

I wouldn't even know why the Adobe reader would pop up when you start a setup program, unless it's popping up when you try to open the Release notes. Please clarify.

so the map installer you are referring to is at the top of this page: https://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1607

 

the 10 files Maps Installer Part 1A - Maps Installer Executable 

 

I believe the message "insert disk 1" means that one or more of the files did not download correctly.

Even then, ...part1.exe of the map package installer is an executable program. Unless something's seriously messed up on that computer, there is just no way how an executable should be attempted to be opened by Adobe Reader.

If I come across as less helpful, I'm sorry. I'm currently out of office so I have only little time to devote to customer support right now, and at the same time your case sounds very mysterious, so I'm not even sure what to advise unless I have a full appreciation of the situation.

Can you make a few screenshots maybe (Win+Print creates a screenshot in your "My Pictures\Screenshots" folder), and then load them up to some picture website, and then send me the links by email?

- of the folder into which you downloaded the installation files

- of the error message that pops up

The same way, once that you receive the CM stick by mail. If you have the stick already, plug it in, visit the same ticket page, and select the picture of the CM stick on the right. This will let you then activate the license, provided you're NOT using MS Edge as the browser.
