Cannot find wgserv.cfg

Postby lupercal » Tue Jan 30, 2018 9:09 pm

I'm trying to setup a new board. I'm trying to following this: viewtopic.php?f=44&t=2070

I have Windows 10, 64-bit. I finally got WG installed (after finding that Overwolf was blocking the setup from running).
I tried to run Offline Utilities (WGSUMENU.exe) but that just immediately terminates.
However, I found that I can run WGSDMOD.EXE and enable/disable different modules.

But if I run either General Setup or Hardware Setup (WGSCNF.exe) I get a message that says

An unrecoverable error has occurred:
Cannot find wgserv.cfg


Is there some way to auto-generate that file?
Any ideas what I should do now?

That's a new one to me, is that file in your wgserv folder? If not what happens when you create a blank one. You can always run wg config setup tool in the start menu.

If I make a blank wgserv.cfg file & start setup I get the following message:

An unrecoverable error has occurred:
wgserv.cfg IS MISSING THE `NLingo=` LINE


I could keep trying to add stuff it tells me I am missing, but I bet there is a better way.

Do you know what the "wg config setup tool" is called? Or what EXE that is?

When I run "Worldgroup Setup Wizard" (wgsrunwz.EXE) nothing happens. The process appears to terminate as soon as I run it.

That was the tool I was referring too.

I have added mine, but It might produce errors since you wont have all the mods I have. I actually edited it and pulled out my extra muds.

Thank you! I had to remove a few entries, but that got me going. I was able to open the different setup sections and change stuff.

I am still not able to open the menu editor (wgsrunmt.EXE) or start the bbs (wgsappgo.EXE), but I'll keep playing around.

Really sounds like you got a bad install happening. My suggestion is build a VM on 98 or xp install on that and then copy your folder off into your aws system.

You're right. I got a VM from Microsoft and the install seems to work fine in there as far as I can tell.
Must be something weird about my Win 10 setup.
