    I downloaded the .exe version for UnWheel and I have a problem installing it. When it is extracting the files it will stop somewhere around 20%-29%. I then the the error Failed to extract <filename> where filename varies (but always a map). I thought I had a corrupt download, so I downloaded again, but I keep the same problem.

    Any ideas?

    I had the same problem, make sure you have over 1 gig of free hard drive space, UnWheel MSU is 1 gig uncompressed and you also need enough space on your hard drive for your windows swap file.

    I have plenty of space, I have over 3 GB free. The installer even checks if there is enough free space, so that should not be a problem I guess.

    I didn't try the zip. I don't really like zips, its a hell to remove a mod if you don't like it, so I prefer UMOD's of exe's.

    But I finally figured out what the problem was. The problem was that I did not have enough space on my C: drive. The weird thing is that I have the setup.exe on the D: drive and I am installing to the F: drive. I found out because I got a balloon popup that said that space was getting low on C:.

    I could not create more than 900MB of free space on my C: drive so I had to change the settings for temporary folders to another drive.

    I think it would be nice if the installer could extract directly to the place where the stuff is supposed to go. Now I need over 1GB on my C: drive for temp stuff that could have gone directly to the game dirs.

    Anyway, problem solved and the mod is looking good :)

    you either have a small hard drive, or need to reformat bad. My C: drive is only 30gigs and I still have 50% free. Ofcourse I reformat every 6 months and keep my mp3's and installers on a 12.5gig slave drive. The only thing on my C: drive is the OS and installed apps. I save all downloads to the slave drive.
    I'm going to get a 80gig drive after the holidaze are gone, and setup a raid controller so I can run 4 hard drives at once. :D
    Set your internet cash to 10-20megs, and history to 0 days also. This will free up about 500megabites

    *EDIT*
    When I say reformat, I mean do it the right way, write 0's to the entire drive, then reinstall the OS.

    And turn off system restore, that takes up a ton of memory. I have a 200gig ;)
