...Probably a manifest update problem.
Ahh, the vagaries of manifest destiny.
Perfect speed is being there.

Strange stuff. We saw so much crap due to updates on Gehn that we eventually added this to the installer to prevent most issues. It won't fix the files being read-only, but it fixes most ownership issues.

Code: Select all

; Give everyone permissions to write to the shard folder.
; This is needed because the patcher likes to touch itself.
Section "SetPermissions"
    ExecWait 'cacls "$INSTDIR" /t /e /g "Authenticated Users":c'
SectionEnd

Given the fun and games I have been having with Minkata on my Win 10 laptop (still so far unresolved), it would be very helpful if Minkata and MOULa could do something similar - please....

Given that Minkata/MOULa currently don’t use an installer such as NSIS, it will take a little bit of work to translate that functionality into the current (or lack of) installation paradigm. I’ll add it to the list ;)
