Is your arf2.exe placed in a Program Files directory under Windows Vista/7? If so, the download is likely failing due to write failure to a directory protected by User Account Control (UAC).
Running arf2.exe as an administrator may still not permit changes to files; the solution I chose was to install my game outside of UAC's jurisdiction. Alternatively you could try shutting off UAC to see if it permits the download--all of which is moot if you don't actually have the game installed in a UAC directory or have UAC in the first place.
All humans are liars, one of their own scholars has told me so.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm on WinXP, so that's not the issue (plus it's located at C:\NeverwinterNights\NWN\arf2). I just tried re-installing ARF2 - not working this time. It still tells me it cannot download the config file...
No, it's been discovered! Our plans for world domination...foiled...
That's a false positive, assuming you got it from us. Our file download hasn't been edited. According to acaos, arf2 is written in autohotkey, and apparently a couple of AV companies automatically detect AHK as a trojan. Also, virustotal shows clean, and 'Trojan.gen' sounds like 'generic possible trojan false positive'.
So, your computer is safe, and our plans for world domination are still intact...mwahahha...MUWAHAHAHAHAH. *pinky to lips*
Fixed my issue (yay), just wanted to ask a question and say thanks to Funky for pointing me here (would not have realised myself that it's under this section).
Question: There are three of us in the house that play NWN (three separate keys), previously we used to just have multiple batch files to copy cdkey and playerinfo to the relevant directories. ARF works perfectly from shortcut and direct, but not from batch (or so it seems). Is there a way to add a few "pre-run" commands? Would be ideal to do other things too like clearing logs or backing up logs, etc.
Using win7 x64, every time I try to run arf2 it starts minimized and will not maximize again. The only way I can solve this issue is to completely delete arf2, and restore a completely clean copy, which then has to update itself again to current, and then check all installed files. As a workaround, this is fine, then when I next run arf2 I am back to the above situation where it starts minimized again. Surely I should not have to do this every time?
