I have discovered that when I install "Misceallenous Improvements", Weidu.log shows this like :
~SETUP-D0QUESTPACK.TP2~ #3 #2 // Creature & Area Improvements -> All Creature Improvements

Then if I try to uninstall, it says that I have "Creature & Area Improvements" installed and I can uninstall it. I have uninstalled that component but since I have not installed it in the first place, is my install corrupted ?

My install is using WeiDU 191.

Something like this might have also happened to me - 'Misc. Improvements' never showed up on my Weirdu.log, even though I know I selected it on the installer.  I even have the option of uninstalling it, just no log.

I can't think that this can be much other than a WeiDU quirk. Perhaps Mr. Bigg can confirm.

Well, the bug is reproductible with WeiDU 187 (shipped with your mod) and WeiDU 195.

When I try to uninstall the component, I get error messages like this :

Quote
You can't uninstall the non-installed component [Miscellaneous Enhancements] (component #2)

I was looking at the TP2 file and saw this :

Quote
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// MISCELLANEOUS ENHANCEMENTS

BEGIN @6

DESIGNATED 2

UNINSTALL Setup-BonsKiss.tp2 0
UNINSTALL Setup-LMA.tp2 0

I don't really know what DESIGNATED 2 is for, but if I comment out this line, the bug disappear.

There you go,Anomaly!  ;D

(from WeiDU readme)

"Normally module components are numbered based on their order in the TP2 file (starting from 0). This flag sets the current component number to forcedNumber. The next component (if it lacks a DESIGNATED flag) will be forcedNumber+1. You can easily shoot yourself in the foot by setting forcedNumber too low (e.g., so that multiple components have the same number). Do not use this flag."

Sorry about the bump, but assuming that this issue is still present in QP, are you saying we should change this:

DESIGNATED 2

to this:

//DESIGNATED 2

Is that how it's done?  And this tp2 edit should be done before installing the mod, correct?
