I'm trying to install some addons for a game I have but the .BAT files won't run. Whenever I click on the file the icon just fades and nothing runs. I've tried importing the .BAT file association from dougknox.com yet still no dice. Any idea why I can't run the .BAT files? Thanks in advance.

Try opening a command prompt window (Start...Run...type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Try running the batch file from there - it will let you see the exact progress of the execution of the batch file.

Often the batch will run - but won't show a screen because it terminates too fast for you to see it.
