Many programs use this NSIS check: sometimes the fix for this is to launch the program manually from the commandline with the flag "/NCRC", but this didn't work either.
Does anyone know how I can get around this issue, or why I am having it when the downloader itself verifies the downloads just fine?
edit: Update — I've verified the archives with 7zip, since the parts are obviously 7zip compressed archives. They are completely fine, and 7zip can extract the data manually. I just don't know how to trigger the install once its been extracted. PS> Did you know that parts of this game are from October of 2005?? Crazy right? According to their file naming conventions, it is true (ie there are files with month and year written on them, going back that far).
2nd Update — Simply running the extracted files doesn't work, I get the error message below, which says that it thinks it is already running and I have to close out before restarting.
I also don't get that nice clean Chinese script, but rather a bunch of latin-character jibberish: the game doesn't localize properly without install, I can tell because my system is configured for Singapore and displays east Asian text just fine normally
3rd Update — I know I am almost micro-blogging my install process — sorry for that. But I've had a partial break-through. I realized that the localization errors I was seeing in the install window showed that it wasn't handling Chinese characters well, and I'd installed into C:\Program Files (x86)\腾讯游戏 ... so I did the obvious thing: copied the files over to E:\BNS (something where the path can't be a problem) .. and now the installer launches. :)
I could go on with the installer, but I can't read anything.. The installer's text still has that jibberish where there should be nice clean Chinese characters. The normal Control+C to copy doesn't work, even though the window is a standard looking system-drawn window. But I can show you a screen cap:
At this point I think I just need to figure out how to get it to work with the modern language settings for windows 8, so I can read what I am seeing. Any ideas?
