BAT setup (installer) won't work
« on: January 04, 2018, 01:24:36 AM »

I ran the torrent for BAT and then tried to run the setup, but it says my PC can't run the application.

Really frustrating. Over 2 hours for the download and the final step doesn't work...

You are an Admin on your own PC, right? Or arn't you?

Fist provide some serious information, like a screenshot of the message itself, or there can't be any help.

Well, I'm pretty sure I'm an admin on my own PC, and I even selected "run as administrator" at one point, but still the same thing.

I'm not much of a tech person... I have an Alienware and bought IL-2 1946 on Steam. It had been handling mods like HSFX just fine, and I decided to wipe the game and reinstall it to try out BAT. As I said, the torrent worked fine, but now the setup application just won't work.

All it says is to "contact the software publisher," so... here I am. :/

Is you Steam game folder (IL-2 1946 installed folder) is under c:\Program Files\ or c:\Program Files (x86)\ ?

Program Files, I believe.

However, I moved the entirety of Steam to the much larger D: Data. That's where my main IL-2 folder is.

Maybe this is the problem: every time I try to download the installer, my computer gives me a "threats found" warning and then the application appears as 0kb. Any way past this?

Your PC's Anti-Virus protect application may work blocking unknown new ".exe" files downloaded / installed.

Open the Anti-Virus application's launcher -- sand box page, recover moved BAT installer exe file.

This sounds familiar with using Windows 10.  When you try to execute the installer file, Windows 10 does not recognize it as a legitimate file.  When this occurs, there is a small button on the warning screen that allows you to continue, something like "run anyway." The installer will continue after you click this button.

FYI - I'm not next to my gaming PC so I am unable to bring up a screen shot of it.

Okay, this is odd... I checked the threat history and they were titled "Trojans." Is the download itself corrupted?

If not, how do I bypass Windows Defender to download it? Where's the "sand box" page?

It's not that simple, I'm afraid... No "run anyway" button.

I'm concerned about it classifying a file within the download as a Trojan. It's labeling it as a severe threat.

JM - I have done this, there is something on the warning screen that allows you to proceed.  This will happen for each executable file associated with BAT.  This means that Windows will identify the file for the BAT install and each of its updates as a threat. Run a virus check using a anti-virus program other than Defender.  I have Mcafee and all of the files downloaded through this site have been scanned prior to being completely downloaded and none have been identified as being a threat but when I opened them they all were identified as a threat by Windows Defender.  Secondly, I routinely run a scan of my system and no threats have been identified since I installed BAT and all of its updates.
