GSC2012 installation error

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by Neil Bateman, Jul 2, 2012.

  1. I have been trying to install GSC2012 as instructed on the same drive but different folder to the original GSC, however i keep getting the same error every time i try to install as shown in pic below and it does not install the exe. I have the digital version of the game and downloaded the torrent from here: http://www.virtualr.net/game-stock-car-2012-released.

    It does say its the digital set up so i am sure i got that part right.

  2. Try to run the installer again. That worked with me
  3. As i said in original post, i keep getting the error everytime i try to install, i gave up after 6 attempts, but thanks for reply.
  4. Ok I think I found it. Turn off your virus scanner and try again.
  5. Thanks lars, will try that.

    Verify the downloaded files are not corrupt:

  7. I am now getting same error as Neil, after playing this morning it now wont play at all no exe file in root folder nothing. Desfktop icon has no destination when opened, wtf is going on?? Never had original GSC now wishing I never spent money on this now!!! Turned virus scanners off.....

    Edit; After uninstalling my antivirus I am now getting the installer to work! My question is, after a scheduled scan whilst in RD server preparing for tonight's Club event, it uninstalled my exe file. What is in the exe file for that to happen?
  8. Nick, (and Alex for your info also), when I had McAfee antivirus installed, it kept removing the GSC dedicated exe. In the end I contacted McAfee and they added it into their 'ignore' list so it stopped happening. I would recommend doing the same with your AV program i.e. submit a false positive report. I have since removed McAfee, but I still get problems installing GSC if I have Microsoft Security Essentials active. But I simply deactivate it while installing and then all is fine once it's installed.
  9. OK will do...:thumbsup:

    if it removes gsc exe how can i get that back? do i need to run install again?
  11. if it's not in quarantine or trashbin, then probably yes.
  12. most antivirus programs will put the file somewhere without deleting it till you tel it to, so check the AV menu and help file first.
