Errr....Help?

Post by moonmyguide on Fri 21 Dec 2012, 22:04

I get the ">SetupNew.setup.cpp (140)" error. I know your suggestion was to get WinRaR. I have heard through the grapevine that WinRaR is not legit unless you buy it. Is there any other way? I don't mean to bug you. I am just pulling my hair out over here.

WinRAR will allow you to continue decompressing but will not allow you to compress. I recommend 7z - people say they've had issues with it and .rar files (I've only seen this claim made on these forums, as a side note) but that's nearly impossible outside of PEBKAC considering the official decompression algorithm is open source (and NO, it's not owned or created by WinRAR - they use the same exact algorithm for decompression -- unless WinRAR implements it's own method of creating the RAR archive that is not using an official algorithm for the rar file format - but then the problem is with WinRAR and not other compression suites). Anyhow, enough of my rant. I'd try 7z - it's open source and free.

Hello,

WinRAR is what we call "nagware" which means you can continue to use it only, it'll keep bugging you to register (and pay). I believe our version here doesn't do that though, if you follow the entire installation guide.

Hello,

But in order to get rid of that error, you'll have to remove your current version completely, then restart your PC and then install the downloaded version, following the included "# Installation Guide.txt".
