Issue installing

During the install I get an error that all the files have not be copied. I says that I can copy them manually. However, it doesn't say what files to copy?

I have a screencast at:

Hi Teppar and others!

This may be happening when you specify a Documents folder during the setup of World Machine that isn't valid. To copy the files manually, go to the C:/Program Files (x86)/World Machine {whatever edition you have}. In that folder, copy the folders for Examples, Presets, and Macros. Copy those to a new folder of your choice, then let World Machine know where that folder is. My recommendation is to create a World Machine Documents folder wherever you'd like, copy those documents to that folder, start World Machine, go to Preferences, and then Paths. Then on the Paths page, for click set for each item and enter the path for where you put that folder. That should solve the installation issue, I hope! Let me know if it doesn't.

All of that is obviously quite a pain, which is why World Machine tries to do it for you during installation!

Teppar - if you are having trouble and have decided to use a different software and would like a refund, feel free to contact our support line at [email protected] That's the best way to get direct help of that nature. Thanks!
