Metaltech Installers

Post by Akira » Fri May 30, 2014 12:25 pm

None of the installers are linking to the files anymore.

I just checked and the links are OK. It must be something on your end. Perhaps your security software is blocking it. Some AVs will throw false positives and block downloads. Make sure you are downloading it from the installer page

Also, be sure that if you are using any download managers that they are not causing problems.

I'm not using any Antivirus(I use Avast) that should block them, nor do I use download managers. Every OTHER installer works for me on that page, but the Metaltech ones don't.

The links are direct links to the files, not to any scripts. Try right clicking "save link as..." or another browser.

I tried internet explorer and the save as, I get the same error and it says an unknown error in the case of saving the link as. Also I tried Chrome. None worked.

Ecoquest2 and the Expansion for Earthsiege 1 worked for me, I'm trying to specifically install Earthsiege 2 which isn't working for me, but I've noticed a problem with the others too.

What information do you need, just so I know what to look for. Also update, says now that the source file cannot be read.

If it says that the source cannot be read it can't read the disc. Look for damages, scratches, cracks, abrasions, etc.

Save the file before you start it. You are trying to open it before the browser has finished downloading and scanning it.

I tried that and it shows up as a partial download of 0kb. I don't know what's going on on my end, but it's starting to annoy me a bit.
