This is the error I am getting...any ideas?

I created a folder under the main matrix folder called BTSlite...it installs for a bit then this pops up.

thanks.

It's the same thing here: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3998155

Just turn off your antivirus during installation.

Be quiet: when you encounter this error you must close the .exe application with Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Canc), clicking ok on the pop-up error windows don't stop the .exe execution (it continue to run in background). If you don't close it you are not able to run the installation .exe again...until you restart your pc, of course.

You do know that a second install doesn't actually have to be 'insstalled'?

Every time I want a second install for a new mod I create a new folder named WITPAE-FP, as an example for a new folder for the Focus Pacific mod.
Then I copy the entire contents and subfolders of my first install into the new folder. so the first subfolder of WITPAE-FP has the same name as the folder of my first install.
After that all I have to do is copy in all of the mod files to the correct folders and create a new desktop shortcut to the executable.

Viola! Second install for a mod without having to 'install' the program.

I had several installs previously,Oh the drama when patching
Now I have just DBB C and play no other until the PBEM game in progress ends. You cannot imagine how much it simplifies my life
