Unable to install
« on: April 09, 2009, 05:54:34 PM »
I downloaded this mod and cannot install it.

The instructions say to "doubleclick on the unfinishedbusiness##.exe file and install to the SoA directory."

Unfortunately, I cannot find any download of an .exe file, only a .rar file that my computer doesn't know what to do with (it wants to know what program created the file so Windows will know how to open it).  

I am running Windows XP SP3.  I would LIKE to run your mod.  Is there something I am missing in order to do so?

You need WinRar or some other compression program that can decompress rar files.  You can get a free trial of WinRar for 30 days.  I think 7zip might decompress rar files and I believe it might be completely free.  Google the program names and you should easily find download links.

After you get it extracted into the game directory follow the instructions as provided.

It is possible that an earlier version was distributed with a self-extracting exe file, and that the readme instructions were not updated to match the current release...

Yes you're right.  :)
