We know we promissed you a self-installer, but unfortunately we have run into problems on short notice! Instead you have to do the initial installation of CoH: Modern Combat using a selfextractor. Once you have done that you will use the mod using our custom launcher, which will then take care of any updates in the future, as promised. We'll explain you in detail how to do everything, its pretty easy.

During the next days we will present a solution that makes it easier for people who have trouble to install it this way.

Step 0)
Make sure your Company of Heroes client and your .NET Framework are up to date!

Step 1)
Download the selfextractor using the link provided, and save it anywhere on your computer.
DOWNLOAD from moddb
DOWNLOAD via torrent

Step 2)
Run the downloaded ModernCombat.exe as an Administrator. If you aren't sure whether or not you have administrator rights on your PC, you can forcibly run the program as an administrator by right-clicking on the file and clicking "Run as administrator".
IPB Image

Step 3)
A new window will pop up, asking you where to extract the files to. You will have to choose the Company of heroes installation root folder.
For steam installations this usually is:
"C:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\company of heroes".
For regular installations this usually is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Company of Heroes"

IPB Image

Confirm to overwrite "LuaExtCore.dll" and "lua-io.dll" if they already exist!

Step 4)
Once you extracted all the files you will find the Modern Combat launcher under "....\Company of Heroes\Modern Combat\ModernCombat.exe". This also has to be run as administrator! Create shortcuts if you want (rightclick on ModernCombat.exe->send to->Desktop)
Make sure that your firewall doesn't block the launcher!
IPB Image

Step 5) (optional)
If you run into trouble while installing the mod you can consult us by creating a post in our Technical Support forum. We'll need some basic information to be able to help you. Please post the contents of your launcher.log ("...\Company Of Heroes\ModernCombat\launcher.log") and your system specifications in the following format:

QUOTE
Operating System: e.g. Windows 7 Professional 64bit
Did you buy CoH on Steam?: yes/no
CoH Installation directory: e.g. "C:\Program Files\Company Of Heroes"
Which versions of CoH are installed (multiple answers allowed): original CoH/Opposing Fronts/Tales of Valor/CoH Gold Edition

Patching

Step 1)
The launcher will automatically check whether updates are available every time you start it up. In that case a popup will appear notifying you that a download is available. Choose the download server and click OK. The initial

Once the download is complete it will install itself automatically. A popup will appear notifying you that the patch has installed correctly and that you're ready to play online. Hit the Start button in the bottom right corner in order to run the mod.

That happens because the launcher tries to download news from the moderncombat webserver, which is currently off-line; it couldn't handle the immense interest the mod has generated.
Just click ok - it doesn't affect the mod itself.

For now, you have to run the game as administrator.

If you're paranoid about it:
1. install winrar: http://www.rarlab.com/
2. rightclick moderncombat.exe
3. select 'Open with WinRar'
4. extract the content manually to the path specified in the tutorial
5. virusscan the crap out of evetything

1.) Are you sure you installed the files into your CoH installation folder, and NOT into your "MyDocuments/MyGames/Company of Heroes" folder?
2.) Are you sure you are running the launcher as administrator? (rightclick -> run as administrator)

I'm 100% sure of both 1.) and 2.), I'm thinking that the "unusual path (D:\Programma's\Steam)" is not working or something as it doesn't start anything after clicking Start. Relocating the files is not going to work as I don't have enough space left on my C:\ partition..

Custom paths are not a problem, but I'm a little suspicious of the apostrophe.
