So me and my friend decided to try this mod out and it works perfectly or me, but he cant launch the installer. It just doesnt open even after waiting more than 15 minutes. Any ideas or fixes for this problem?
Yes I think I downloaded from pirate bay because I couldn't find that version in any other way,do I need an original game version?
My installation tips that I think will help others:On attempt to run the newly downloaded file it errored saying folder name cannot contain any of the following characters / : <>*. The installer default wants to make a program group called Company of Heroes: Eastern Front. Notice the :? I removed that to proceed. Once installation finished I didn't have a desktop icon to launch the mod. So I hit Windows Start, browsed to the new "Company of Heroes Eastern Front" folder yet there was only a button to uninstall. I searched forums and found that you need to launch the game from “EF_Launcher.exe”. It’s not in the Windows program folder Company of Heroes Eastern Front with the uninstall option, but instead is in in my COH directory. My own directory happened to be "E:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\company of heroes\EF_Launcher.exe". I found it by doing a full computer hard drive search on "EF_Launcher.exe".I launch the file EF_Launcher.exe from Windows Explorer. It comes up with a little window, play or update. Clicking on play immediately recognized I was in an old version, so it updated from their server. I had to manually browse to the correct Steam subdirectory each time it wanted to update (4 updates I think as of Nov 4, 2010).Now that the mod is fully updated and installed, I click on Play and it says it can’t find the location of my COH directory. I click on the Settings menu option on top. In lower right hand corner of settings there’s a COH directory Field, and it was blank. I paste the STEAM directory again and save. My own happened to be E:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\company of heroes. The game now launches to a familiar COH start screen with Multiplayer, Skirmish etc. From there play as you would COH, with the Soviets now a 3rd option under Allies.
