    Question Error reading npcleanup.vbs

    I played QL a while ago, and it got boring.

    And I deleted the files without actually un-installing the plugin.

    Now when I try to re install, it says "Error reading from file: C:\Documents and settings\all users\application data\id software\quakelive\npcleanup.vbs. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it."

    How can I get past this?

    Thumbs up

    I take it that, by looking at the folder tree you posted, you are running XP.

    Do this:

    1.) Make a folder called C:\temp

    2.) Make another folder inside of C:\temp called 'install' e.g.: now you would have C:\temp\install

    3.) Save QuakeLive.msi from the QLive site (or a copy from your computer if you saved it rather than installing it direct) to C:\temp

    4.) Close your browser

    4.) Go to start menu --> Run --> type in: 'cmd'

    5.) copy and paste this, without the quotes: "msiexec /a C:\temp\QuakeLiveNP.msi /qb TARGETDIR=C:\temp\install"

    6.) Now you should have a bunch of files in C:\temp\install

    7.) Copy the following files:
    npcleanup.vbs
    npquakezero.dll
    pbsvc.exe

    to: C:\Documents and settings\all users\application data\id software\quakelive

    8.) Run npcleanup.vbs from C:\ProgramData\id Software\QuakeLive

    9.) Restart your browser and enjoy

    Just follow what Lofra posted here. It's easy. Or you have another OS?
