I have tried searching the forums and have tried the remedies advised by previous posts but am still having issues. two issues to be exact.
1: I had a laptop with vista but could never get mods to work on it. Even as administrator i was unable to get them installed correctly. that laptop broke so i got a new omne with wiin7, which i was advised would allow me to mod games. That little snippet of information turned out to be as patently false. I have tried running in XP compatability, as admin, changing the access rights for the files for all users so they had mod capabilities, to no avail. Is there a guide on what i need to do with win7 to get mods to work, as I have tried searching internet and not found a solution (or one that i understand....) :)
2: I have tried to install and play vanilla, which worked - albeit that i had to go into the programme files - rome folder - to run teh game as the desktop option advised me that the MSSDLL file was missing, yet it is clearly in the programm file. I got BI and tried to install that too, which installed fine yet i get the same message about MSSDLL. Even if i put the disk in teh drive and let autorun bring up the menu and try to run from there, it still wont work (although i get no error message - the disk starts up but then nothing happens).
This is becoming increasingly frustrating as i just want to play this game (modded preferably as vanilla versions are a bit pants) but everything has gone wrong, with user having such limited capabilities with these new versions of windows. XP wasnt broke so why try to fix it/make better? At least with XP i could get games to work...
Sorry for waxing on but any and all help would be much appreciated.
