Hi All,


I've installed the Tweak Anthology v4 on my BG2EE (SoA, ToB) obtained through GOG.  I'm running Win10 64bit.


At the end of installation I get the message:


FATAL ERROR: Sys_error("..\\lang\\en_us\\dialog.tlk: Permission denied") 


I thought maybe it was privilege thing so I ran the installer as an administrator without change.  The file itself is not marked  as Read Only.


From the SETUP-CDTWEAKS.DEBUG file, the line right before the error message is:


106459 characters, 210 entries added to DIALOG.TLK


After the installation, there were a number of items and abilities that had no text associated with them resulting in errors.


Any ideas?

Could be a couple of things--if the game or an editor is open, sometimes they can lock the tlk file. Alternatively, Windows gets pretty protective of files in the Program Files path.

Why is this Hypnotoad video so popu... ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.
