For the record - I think both Ra and Spiff are having the same problem.

OK..looks like they may have an early beta of MXC...please uninstall the MXC and use the current MXC here:

http://code.google.com/p/mechwarrior-xc/downloads/detail?name=MXC-Setup-0.52.exe

PLEASE MAKE SURE TO INSTALL "AS ADMIN" USING VISTA OR WIN 7, REMEMBERING TO TURN OFF YOUR AV SOFTWARE

I did see that problem, too. I think it was due to user error when the MTX extractor started running. I think I pressed the Start button two times (my mouse button is acting up). And I got a message saying an extraction was already in process and it said it was going to quit.

The initial extraction process still seemed to be running until it got hung up on updating a text file. Eventually I quit. When I tried to install again, I got the error Cannon posted.

To get around it, I when to the MXC folder under program files and ran the MTX program as an administrator. I was careful to then click the start button once. It seemed to finish successfully.

I then went into MCX and it did not think Mercs was installed! Wot the heck?

I quit MCX and noticed that I had a Mercs icon on my desktop. I clicked it and it asked for the usual graphics settings and seemed to fire up like normal! I could even go to the multiplayer servers.

The only problem is that I am running version 51.03.01.0028.

I am now going to try to run MCX again to see if I can get the later patches.

Oh, by the way, I'm running Windows 7

This sounds like a bad install! CD will be in the mail tomorrow (how much is postage to Canada? shocked but in the mean time... try downloading the game again. Just uninstall the game and try it again from the top with firewall and antivirus off and see if that helps. When you download the game (or install) try to let it finish in one sitting.

Anyone else got any ideas?

SPAMBOT! jk. Alright, I made the CD and it is in the mail! (YAY) BUT I managed to screw something up. I forgot to include the Varients folder for mercs in there. The game will likely crash when going to mechlab with out it. but thats ok! I can just email you that file and you can put it in your resource folder!

The CD contains a README file, (do it) and the folder for MW4 Mercs 3,1. I managed to get ALL THE MAPS on there too! So you should be set! CD should get there within a week (I guess) but I'd keep trying the game in the mean time.

To anyone else out there that NEEDS a good install of mercs and cant download it.. just email or private message me with an address so I can send a REAL CD to your house. (future CDS will contain varients folder... mah bad)

*off topic note* I don't know how the spambots gets through the captcha.. I've spent 4 tries now trying to figure out what the heck it says! Is that an L or a 1>?

Random thought... have you tried running Mercs as an Administrator? Right-click on the Mercs icon and choose that option. I couldn't join the wppc server because of network problems at first... can't remember if this fixed it or not (running windows 7).
