Clan Quest Mod Steam installation problem
« on: May 20, 2013, 11:12:54 pm »
So I've been having issues trying to install CQM on my steam directory (it's in Program Files (x86) since this computer is 64 bit).  Keeps getting me error 5: access denied whenever it tries to modify the .dlls (which is like the beginning of the installation).  I thought it was because the directory is program files, and I heard that steam on program files can cause mod issues, so I moved Steam to documents and STILL got the same error.  I'm installing this on an admin account, and yet it seems that even with my permissions it still won't install.

I'm thinking it's an issue with my firewall sandboxing the installer, since it also affects FO:NV whenever I try to get FOMM or NNM working, but it may infact be steam related.  Doesn't affect skyrim for some reason though.

So I'm trying to pinpoint the problem, but in the meantime if anyone any new ideas I could explore I'm all ears.

Edit: Eureka!  Read only was checked, thought I had that unchecked when I did TFN, so I assume it was rechecked when I reinstalled.

If you put your head to a pipe, you can always hear ringing.  But whether it's the pipe or your head that's ringing is the question.

Old thread but perhaps this will help someone in future:

1.) Do not install games into Program Files or Program Files (x86).

2.) Disable all Steam features such as update, file checking, and so on as they revert your game to only the "official files" as downloaded by the Steam client, destroying UP and any other mods you may have added.

Firewalls do not, and indeed cannot, sandbox applications unless you are perhaps running on Linux via WINE or using a virtual machine/emulator. Comodo claims to do so but it's utter BS.
