    Hey guys, been looking at GSC for a long time and finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase it, however when I try to install the Setup.exe seems to be unable to find the .BIN files when it asks me to "insert disk 1" I have all three .BIN files in a folder on my desktop and have tried with the setup.exe in this folder and not in this folder!
    Couldn't find anything helpful after 3 hours of trawling the web so I have come here to beg for help!

    They should all be in the same folder and it should work fine.

    Thanks for the reply Alex, I have tried this maybe 100 times and it always says it cannot find Setup bin 1 in the folder even though I am certain it is that folder!

    I suggest you chill, get a refreshing drink and wait for a helpful advice, which should arrive soon. If not today, tomorrow surely. It will all be sorted out.:thumbsup: I had problems with the install as well the first time. I'm not sure now, but i think the 3 files didn't download in their entirety the first time and i had to redownload. You might have the same issue. Ask Alex what size each file is and check if your files match the size.

    if you have all the files in the same directory and it's not working then it must be corrupt.

    Sorry if I'm saying something to obvious, that you have already tried. But I had problems with install until I run the setup.exe as an admin (with all the files in the same folder).


    Also I can only play GSC running the .exe as admin.

    The BIN files are the "discs" - if setup is saying you´re missing a disc, it means you´re missing a BIN file. Either that file was a) not downloaded, b) it´s not in the same folder as the installer executable, c) it´s corrupt or d) it´s been renamed and the installer is failing to locate it.

    If all 4 files (5 in the case of v1.15) are in the same local folder with their correct names and, the installer program should pick up on them automatically.

    Ok redownloaded the files and still no change, tried running as admin and have double checked that no anti virus is blocking the program.

    Ok I have the setup application, Bins 1,2 and 3 all in a folder on my desktop, I have downloaded twice and the file sizes are all identical both times, I haven't renamed anything. so I believe so, yes!

    Windows might rename them automatically though if you attempt to download the same file to the same folder multiple times. So long as you have one with the original name and its integrity is OK it should not be a problem having doubles. Worth a check in any case as things can get messy when you´re re-downloading multiple files.

    If you prefer please post a screen grab of your local folder where the files are so we can try spot the problem.

    I just do a test by rename my "GSCExtreme_v115_Setup" to "GSCExtreme_v115_Setup (2)" and when i click the "install" i get this: --

    [​IMG]

    So try rename your "GSC2013_v110_Setup (2)" to "GSC2013_v110_Setup" see if that solve your problem.

    Good luck :)
