settings.txt is very peculiar there's no extra white space anywhere. But then again what you have there looks legit. Can you try copying the folder path from File Explorer as text, and pasting there? That's how I do it, but I have a complex install path to begin with.

the settings path should be"

Middle East=D:\Matrix Games\Campaign Series Middle East

Try removing the " 2.0". I had the same issue, and removing that fixed it.

Yes, it needs to be your exact install path copied to the settings.txt. Glad you were able to make it work, got me worried for a while [:)]

Oh that's right, the default I put to settings.txt has "2.0" in it, as I thought at the time that's how the install will name it. My bad, sorry about that guys!

I am not being allowed to delete the '2.0" in the Settings text. It says I need admin rights but I can't do this task as administrator and when I delete 2.0 and try to save the change I am not allowed to do so.

Any suggestions? I like using the Unit Viewer!

Cheers Rich, that sounds like you installed the game in C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\Campaign Series Middle East\ right?

What you can do - this is the easiest way I could figure out - is copy the settings.txt file from there to another location, edit it there, and copy it back. File Explorer will ask for Admin permissions to replace the file there, and once you click OK to that you should be good to go.

Let me know if this helped.
