I can't install 6.0 files.
« on: March 24, 2008, 03:12:19 pm »

I used the windows download on the "downloads" page (6.2), but when I try to run the installer, a message pops up. I don't remember it exactly, but it went along the lines of "Could not install package urquan-masters-0.6.0  Error: Connecting to host. THIS IS A MANDATORY PACKAGE. Without it, Urquan-masters 6.2 will not run. Would you like to retry from a different mirror?

Yes                            No"

Everytime I click "Yes", it exits then comes back a split-second later, the only way I can get rid of it is by repeatedly clicking "No", after which point "The-Urquan-Masters 6.2" installs, but as the folder takes 2 Megabytes, and the installer says it takes 140MB, it seems to be missing something important. This also happens with other 6.2 installers I've found.

EDIT: I'm also using Windows XP.

The easiest way to handle this (apparently, something is wrong with your Internet connection or with SourceForge) is to download the content packages manually and place them in the UQM package directory. See the description of content management for details on where this directory is. Alternatively, you can install as if you do not have an Internet connection; see instructions for installing UQM without an Internet connection.
