Hi!

 

Bought Baldur`s Gate II Shadows of Amn including Throne of Bhaal years ago, but never played it. Just installed it and wanted to install the Widescreen Mod. I have already installed the latest patch (I think), called something like this:

 

BGII-ThroneofBhaal_Patch_26498_ENGLISH.exe,

 

found at the sorcerers.net, here:

I have Windows 7 Enterprise. Installed both games in full. Have already started a new game before trying the Widescreen Mod, but that probably doesn`t matters. Read this thread:

and followed his instructions. Installed (in order): the BG2 fixpack, Unfinished Business and then attempted the Widescreen Mod. But then I got this fault message:

Does anyone know what I should do? No matter where I try to install it, I get the same message.

Probably, your virus protection agent falsely took out the weidu.exe(named as setup-widescreen.exe) that the archive harbors and so as it can't be started, you get the error. Turn it off.

Thanks, Jarno! This solved it.

 

Since I`m gaming on my work computer, I had to download it to my private computer, install the mod, ZIP the files and send it to my work computer.

 

Problem solved :)
