GGDT runtime error 76

Unread postAuthor: Biopyro » Fri Dec 19, 2008 11:40 am

Whenever I try to configure the options on a previously saved file (doesn't happen on the default gun that comes up when you start the program), I get a runtime error 76.

It's really irritating and it never used to happen, but I don't know what changed to cause it. Any ideas?

Are you running Vista? If so, are you running it under an admin-enabled account? If not, that's your problem. GGDT requires it be run under an admin-enabled account. Why? I have no idea. There's nothing I'm doing that should require admin privs. Ask Microsoft WTF the deal is.

Is there any text associated with the error (other than the error code itself)? Stuff like... "File XXX is missing." or somethign like that?

When in vista, are you guys just using an admin account, or are you actually right clicking on the EXE and hitting "Run as administrator" then clicking "continue" on the box that pops up?

Yes, I am the guy that owns & operates SpudFiles (along with our extremely helpful moderators).
