PostSubject: Unable to access   Sat 7 Apr - 11:29

Hi, we are recieving the message in an alert pop-up box that said: "an exception occured during a web client request"
We tried to reinstall but no luck! We tried another computer with a different configuration and again no luck. Any ideas of what we are doing wrong? Thanks! The computers both had windows but one had vista and the other had 7. The message did not change.

You'll need to be more specific about the circumstances, before we can help.

Which program, at what time during program startup?
Is this occurring when you attempt to run the Multiverse Client, or another program?


Depending on which proigram it is, have you checked the logs?

The general logs are kept in the logs/yourprojectname, and you should check each of them.
For the Client, you should also check in My Documents/Multiverse World Browser/Logs.
In all the log files, do a search (using the Find function in your text editor of choice) for 'error'.

Then, tell us what errors you come up with.

I came across this too, assuming it's the same thing.

Windows 7 x64 with UAC enabled, when running the client, displays a dialog titled "Alert" with the text:
"An exception occurred during a WebClient request."

Looking in the log files, you'll see something like this:

Code:

The problem is that the patcher doesn't have rights to write to C:\Program Files. It's just part of the locked-down restrictions of modern Windows. The easiest way around it is to run the OS in "god mode" (UAC off and admin rights). This isn't a good solution for most users, so that's why programs tend to install to <home>\AppData\Local\ when administrative priveleges aren't available.

Plenty of programs do this now -- the Chrome browser, for instance installs to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application, and lots of self-patching MMOs install into the home directory now. The trick is to design your installers to do non-administrative installs. I know how to do this with InnoSetup, but haven't done it with other installers.
