  • Cant install Freeway

    Ok, i have tried to install Freeway for some time no. I downloaded the mplayer and i would put it in the Freeway directory but i cant install free way to create a directory. I have tried making a directory called "Freeway" but still it doesn't work. can someone give me a hand here? what am i doing wrong? Thank You!

    below is a picture of my directory structure:


    the name of the directory that you extract freeway and mplayer into does not matter. for example my directory is named freeway-ccfru-0.7.219

    i hope this helps, if it doesn't, let me know and ill be glad to help figure out the problem farther

        is this the error message your receiving when trying to open the FreewayUltra program:


        if so the problem maybe be as simple as below:

        Example 2 shows a mplayer directory inside another mplayer directory (which can easily happen when extracting mplayer to the freeway directory)
        Example 1 shows the proper way for the directory structure

        if this doesn't solve the problem can you explain more in detail about what actions you are doing to receive the error message

          make sure you are downloading the correct mplayer. You want MPlayer 1.0rc1 Windows not MPlayer 1.0rc1 Windows GUI.

              it doesnt matter where you put the fonts. once the fonts are installed on your computer, the folder with the fonts you extracted from the zip file is no longer needed

                You need to install the fonst by dragging and dropping them into the windows\fonts folder.

                  ************** JIT Debugging **************
                  To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
                  application or computer (machine.config) must have the
                  jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
                  The application must also be compiled with debugging
                  enabled.

                  For example:

                  <configuration>
                  <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
                  </configuration>

                  When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
                  will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
                  rather than be handled by this dialog box.

                          I'm still getting that error after loading those fonts. I looked at the fonts in that file and the one it lists is not included in there. might someone be able to uploaded from their computer and email it to me? [email protected]
                          thanks for the help all

                            the ge drover font is in the zip file, its filename is GEDRBI__
                            i had erased the required fonts from my machine and ran freeway and got the same error report as you. then i installed all the fonts that are in the zip file and freeway loaded fine with no issues at all
