Problems with setup-tactics.exe
« on: April 25, 2003, 09:22:35 AM »
When I run setup-tactics.exe I get the following error message:

[C:\Program Files\Black Isle\BGII - SoA\Setup-Tactics.exe] WeiDU version 104

[SETUP-TACTICS.TP2] PARSE ERROR at line 17 column 1-6
Near Text: ALWAYS
        syntax error

[SETUP-TACTICS.TP2]  ERROR at line 17 column 1-6
Near Text: ALWAYS
        Parsing.Parse_error
ERROR: parsing [SETUP-TACTICS.TP2]: Parsing.Parse_error
ERROR: problem parsing TP file [SETUP-TACTICS.TP2]: Parsing.Parse_error

ERROR: Parsing.Parse_error

Press ENTER to exit.

I began to get this error message after trying to uninstall another WEIDU mod, namely NPCFlirt.

What should I do?

The Setup-NPCFlirt.exe replacement I sent you should automatically update the Tactics installer and make this work again.

WeiDU 104 had buggy file-replace code, so some mod you installed that used it overwrote the newer Tactics installer with an older version.

I had a similar error message as posted above (as I recall mine said "Set Up-pell50.tp2 PARSE ERROR AT LINE 1, COLUM 0-1" ect) . and eventually
I had to do a clean reinstall, I did not have the flirt pac installed however.

I have numerous mods of Various versions of WeiDU on disk, Given JCs comments I think the “old” version of WeiDU that caused the problem came from an older version of ease of use that I had used.

Numerous people, including myself have had difficulties with the ease of use/ multiple stronghold mod. This is one of my favorites and I wanted a working version to load with the BP set up I have (I have multiple versions of setups on my PC) to see if there were conflicts

Since previous versions of the multiple stronghold mod had worked for me I thought the error had something to do with the new version of ease of use .So I said to myself "Load an old version and test your theory"

It was a great theory but given my very rudimentary understanding of computers when I got the parse error I was stuck. I posted a question on a thread  but is was probably not the right place. Finally quit and started to
Try out the improved battles mod (it is by the way a lot of fun )

So my questions are 1) do you think the source of the error is the same i.e. v104
                              2) is there a fix so I could try out my ease theory

There's some mod out there that's being distributed with the bad WeiDU 104 that's screwing people up.

Fix it the old-school way: Go to Wes's site, download WeiDU, rename weidu.exe as Setup- (whatever you need to uninstall) .exe and replace the old setup-blah.exe with that file. Then run it.
