OMG!  Please help me.  I had an old Vista PC that had my offline generator on it.

Now I have a new Win 10 box and I tried the old method (as remembered) to install character generator and CBLoader.  Fail ...

The message I get is after it merges the part files it says something about writing to protected memory.

- I have .net 3.5 and 5 installed.  
- I installed the character generator, cbloader, the march update, and the october update, BUT the oct update failed.  It just gave some odd system error.  
- I tried both as-is from that install and copying my AppData folder from the old system to the new one and no differences.  

Help, please!

Last few lines of log file:

series0,
Did you install the builder in a non-standard folder like the instructions earlier say to do? It usually works if you make a new folder on the Desktop and install it there.

That's odd. I've heard of some issues with a Win10 install, but I can say that the 3 times I've installed in on a Win10 machine, it has worked just fine without doing anything 'special'. I'm assuming you've used this same install previously with success? I have all of my install bundle saved in a folder (and backed up) so I can use the same files/method each time.

Are you able to get through the install completely? I've also found that if I set the shortcut to "run as administrator" it tends to have fewer issues.

I DID NOT use a non-standard folder. I will try that.

Same install has been used on two other Vista machines (and several laptops) with success.

Install all works with 4 components:

Character Builder, March update, October update, CBLoader. BUT, October update fails with strange error. I have tried just running without it. Fails as well.

I will also try run as admin. Update coming soon.

Used t he non-standard folder now. It worked ... better. The Oct install worked.

But, the backups I have did not include the part files in the custom folder, only the cbloader files. That means some updates are ... lost. So I can rote copy in the finished combined files I have and it works when I load it, but, I have to do it again to get them back every single time. Oddly, this is true even when I run no update for start. I do not understand that.

Didn't have to run as admin.

Did anyone ever write an XML interface to easily design new part file components to inject? I can't believe no one did. I made a few manual updates that worked ok for my homebrew warlock and bard classes. But the lack of custom part inclusion was a big flaw in that tool. It's also insanely hard to eliminate sources with those thousand entries to uncheck.

In the following thread I have a Post with the full CBuilder and CBLoader files uploaded and linked for others to use.

http://4enclave.roleplaylife.net/t181-cbloader-for-posterity

Please check there for the files including the .Part Files for all of the official Content and a bunch of 3rd party stuff too. Some times you need to start over from scratch or close to it at least.
