Any input on this issue, please?
Why do you want to rename the online file in the first place?
Anyway, my guess is the injector code in the online exe makes an explicit reference to the "invoker and invokee" and since the check fails it will do this.

If you're on XP this doesn't apply (Usually unless your account isn't administrator). If you've disabled UAC (Why?) It STILL APPLIES because of how privaledges work in Vista and 7.

Running everything as Admin didn't help.
Delete the game from steam, delete the shortcut, and re-add it. See if that helps... I know I had it working before. I just didn't like the overlay making PSO run even shittier then it does already.
Also, this should probably be in it's own thread...
There's a few things you can do. For online.exe I make it check for the existence of shpsobb.exe in the same directory - I chose this file because it would tell Windows this is in fact SCHTHACK PSOBB we're dealing with, and not Sega's or another program. Because my installation package has the latest version of online.exe, and to prevent application of this patch to future versions (which might get fixed), I also tied it to the checksum.CompproB237 wrote:
I'd like to know how you narrowed the scope of your installer's "fixes" without needing to involve a database of files, checksums, and sizes.
This problem happens when the executable or part of the installation become corrupt. You'll probably want to try reinstalling before anything else. If it fails to correct the problem, verify the installer itself didn't get damaged or corrupt.safkjgs wrote:On 64-bit Vista here.
I have one problem with your installer which I've been having with every installer I've tried. I can open online.exe , but once i click "Start" I get an "Unsupported 16-bit Application Error" "The program or feature SHPsoBB.exe can not start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows".
Since that didn't work I tried SHPsoBB_multi.exe to launch the game directly .This worked launched the game but does not let me connect to the server
This package has a working copy of shpsobb.exe included, it doesn't touch the update server version. If you get this error then it is due to corrupt installation package, corrupt install, or something else going on with the computer it was installed to.CompproB237 wrote:The error with "16-bit application", NTVDM, or similar are because Crono hasn't fixed online.exe to download the files from a location that the host for the current DL location hasn't locked.
I've already told him about it.... 2 WEEEKS AGO. This is very similar to the Download Links on the main download page. Haven't been fixed for quite a while.
I predict either a few months before anything's done, nothing done at all or something as soon as this post is read (like me getting slapped with something).
Thanks for the suggestions. I happened to make all these changes in the latest version which I am about to post. New icon, multilanguage updates (fixes first thing (typo)), and the installation path for PSOBB (I had to track down a problem in NSIS before I could use that folder by default, which is why I was temporarily using C:\SCHTHACK PSOBB). It's a great improvement over the first two versions.Oh, just checked out the installer you made. Got a typo on the first page: "privaledges are requires to run this game" Should say required
You should have it default to %PROGRAMFILES%\SCHTHack PSOBB instead of C:\SCHTHACK PSOBB. Gives it a Dynamic variable as some people (me) have the Program Files folder in a different drive.
Make the installer create an empty "bmp" folder in the main install folder for people's screen shots to be saved in.
The other option that exists is to disable virtualization entirely (use NoVirtualization Compatibility fix). I did this in Release 3 which I have now posted.CompproB237 wrote:Anyway, to explain what Virtual Registry is for: It fixes PSO's references to registry locations so that it correctly applies to Vista and 7. Vista and 7 Virtualize the registry when in "user mode".
The same applies for the "correct file paths" shim. It's simply there to fix PSO's references to locations on Vista and 7 since it's file system works in "virtual paths" and not device paths.
