    hi everyone.

    i've spent the last 2 hours attempting to install and play my newly purchased copy of BeamNG
    how ever i have run into so many issues i'm quickly loosing my cool with this.

    when i first install the game it runs through the complete installation process fairly faultlessly. however then the updater launches and the gets to proxy settings and then stops claiming that it is unable to open the writing: update.exe file


    (imported from here)

    the same thing happens if i just use the launcher, it tries to update and then flops

    if i try to use the shortcut this then pops up


    (imported from here)

    if have run this as administrator, i have tried deactivating my proxy, but it was already off. i've spent a few hours looking for answers on this forum but for some reason, it will just not work.

    any help will be much appreciated, i hate having to do this, but i'm out of ideas entirely.
    i will make sure that if this issue is resolved i will put the method down.

    thanks

    Dukey

    ahhh found it. comodo antivirus had been blocking the updater.exe from opening, but turning comodo off didn't seem to work. if this issue is effecting you run comodo in clean pc mode and that should solve it.

    Re: can't for the life of me get this to update and install correctly

    Cool, that might be something that should be added to support threads as a suggestion in future.

    glad that has helped others, maybe a change to the way the installer operates might stop this after future updates.

    i have since run the installer with comodo operating as normal and it doesn't seem to effect any part of the update process, maybe its just an initial problem with the updater/installer. but if anyone is having problems try putting it back to clean pc mode again to update. and make sure that you have administration rights set to allow changes to the game files.

    throw your computer in a fire to destroy all traces of norton.


    More seriously. Is it norton or norton 360, procedure is different for both.

    Details process of disabling norton and norton 360.
