    Thumbs down Windows app keeps uninstalling (fixed in 2.012)

    I install PC client, I play, I quit and it removes itself! Sorts of, I'm not sure what exactly is happening, but the exe file for SE disappears and so does uninstallation file, so I have to delete the left over SE folder manually! And this happens every time since 1.603 I believe, so I had to switch to play in the browser. But right now neither is working for me, so it's just "great"!

    I will try it next time I'll play the self-removing SE PC client!

    o.O

    That's really strange. I have no clue what's happening there, but it may be related to your camera issue as well if files are disappearing.

    (Moved to new thread, because different issue to the camera one.)


    I'm pretty sure the .exe you download from this site is the installer, not the actual game.

    Mine on PC is installed in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Shadow Era DP 2.01". I can keep launching ShadowEra.exe in there, no problem, without it needing to be reinstalled.

    The installer exe stays intact - it's the game exe that removes itself!

    Where is the game's .exe installed and does the directory disappear straight after as well?

    Nope, the directory stays, however the unistall exe disappears as well, so I can only remove the folder and not unistall the game properly (it's in the OP BTW)!

    You didn't say where the folder is.

    Is SE even expected to work on XP anyway?

    You can run the installer exe every time you want to start the game, right? Why don't you just do that?
    Also, have you tried manually setting the 'read-only' flag on the other .exe? Maybe it won't be removed then?

    C:\SE

    I can, but then I have to wait: first until the installation is complete, second until the game "updates" - and this is damn annoying, because in addition to the time spent when installing the game you also have to remove it manually every damn time!

    I'm going to try that... next time, thanks!

    This was fixed in 2.012 (along with game updating each time I want to play - not happening anymore, yay), although I did this, so maybe that helped too:
