Installation on a non-internet PC
« on: March 07, 2006, 05:12:01 pm »

The installation process includes the dynamic download of the game files, and, I assume, some registry entries.  I need to install on a stand alone Windows XP PC (no internet connection).  How can I do this?  I already copied the game files over, including the ones in Documents and Settings.

If you copied over the installation files, see the installation instructions.

If you didn't copy the installer (just the directories the game was installed to), you can try putting everything in the same place where the installer put it on the Internet-connected machine; unlike much Windows software, UQM can easily be installed manually without hacking the registry. The only problem I can see is that you may have to uninstall manually.

Thanks, but the instructions in the FAQ didn't work.  At least not for uqm-0.5.0 (the instructions are for uqm-0.4.0).  Even though I specify my D: drive as the source, it looks for the files on the internet and errors out.

I'll try just copying the files from a machine with a successful install, but are you sure there are no registry entries that have to be made?

It seems to work.  Maybe the combination of running the install (even though it partially didn't work) and copying all the files did eveything it needs.  I'm a little concerned that it may bomb out some time later, but for now I guess it's ok.

Yeah, doing that worked fine for me.  My friend with a DSL connection downloaded it for me and just copied the directory on a CD....

I've updated the instructions.
