I extracted the latest https://distribute.re-volt.io/releases/ ... online.zip to C:\Program Files\RVGL\ and started rvgl.exe. After entering my player name and hitting [enter], Windows throws an error message in a popup window:
The profiles folder is empty, so I cannot provide a log.Can't create profile.
Your progress will be lost.
Since I had used the 7z archive (intended for advanced users only ) instead of the installer, I had to set the correct access rights on the RVGL folder. Now it works. I should have read this first:
I have not updated registry keys, but that does not seem to have negative side effects, as far as I can see.Installation steps for Windows
Download the Win32 or Win64 installer setup, depending on your system.
Run it and follow the on-screen instructions. The setup will automatically set required folder permissions, update registry keys and create a Desktop shortcut.
You can now launch the RVGL shortcut on your Desktop, or run rvgl.exe from your Re-Volt folder.
It is possible to manually extract files from the executable without running it (you might have to install 7-zip first). This is intended for advanced users only.
Can maybe someone (Huki?) add a note to the above (in the announcement post) how registry keys are updated/created? (if necessary)
