Well I fear that I am going to have to place this in my "damndest Thing" folder.
I am out of ideas, we will have to see if Mouser, someone else in the forum, or our Fearless developer VIP has a clue, because I am out of ideas.
The last option I could even consider, would be to delete the entire CD folder, run a registry check with CCleaner or Advanced Systems care, ensure that there are no tell tail signs of the program in the AppData file and try to re-install.
I seriously doubt that where you have placed the file has anything to do with the operation. I ran CD for 3 weeks on my Desktop, before I moved it to the Programs File in C:
I am borrowing Halflife, Halo, call of duty, and Neverwinter nights from a friend I will install these over the next couple of days and see if I get stuck with the same issue.
I had never considered using CD as a game start platform, so I am going to test this thing and find out what I can.
Otherwise I am at an end of my current suggestions.
But hey, do not give up, these things are usually something trivial.
At this point I am going to ask for a few days to test these games and see if I can get the scenario that you are experiencing and see if I can get a fix for you.
If in that time you figure it out, let me know what you did, so it can be passed onto others.
I figure if you are experiencing this issue, others must be as well.
If anything else comes up let us know, I try to monitor this forum as much as possible.
Between CD, Rocket Dock, and STabLauncher, I try to help where I can.
I want these programs to work
