    Hello,

    Since I installed SMP 6.22, I can't run it correctly. I installed 2 smp clients in 2 different folders, ran install.bat, gave 2 different machine ID numbers...

    Here is logfile.

    What are you trying to do, can you explain the problem a little more?

    Because it will go a lot further.

    Running two of the smp clients seems to be a little more tricky, in which case I'd recomend running one for now.

    thanks for reply. Indeed, I've been trying running one and it seems to work. everytime, I try both smp clients at the same time, one of the 2 shutdown with this "missing files" error.

    I don't have any problems at all running up to 2+ clients on my system. I basically just installed them into seperate folders within my vista user file, ran the install.bat's individually than assigned different machine ID's and ran as administrator and it worked great. I can run it with or without the -smp argument, maybe try both?
    With the -smp argument it uses much more of the cpu per client, so I can't use as many clients configured like that, but I get much more PPD. I'm using the -smp and -local arguments and installed it in the vista users\*\appdata\roaming\ directory. Also, make sure that the .exe's can pass through your firewall. Hope this helps.
