Error during initialization

Recommended Posts

Getting the following when starting Doom 3:


-------------------------------
using ARB_vertex_buffer_object memory
using NV10 renderSystem
found DLL in pak file: C:\Program Files\Doom 3\base\game00.pk4/gamex86.dll
copy gamex86.dll to C:\Program Files\Doom 3\base\gamex86.dll
could not create destination file
********************
ERROR: DLL extraction to fs_savepath failed

********************
Error during initialization

I am very stuck. Any ideas?

Sorted!

Thanks very much for your help - it pointed me in the right direction.

The reason why it couldn't extract the files was the directory was read only. I was unable to make the directory writeable so created a new directory, copied the contents of \base into it then renamed both so that my new directory became \base. And am now playing quite happily.

Don't know why the directory became locked in that way.
