[solved] Installing proving ground release 3 seems to crash my explor

Hey guys,

When I try to install proving grounds release 3, the file explorer sticks and nothing happens. I've tried running in administrator mode, and also extracting the files from the zip and no change.

Do I need to delete the r2 version and then try and install? What might be the problem causing this.

I'm on Windows 10 if it helps at all.

I've never heard of anyone else having this problem. You don't need to uninstall R2 (but you can of course). I can only assume it's a problem with your PC/OS. If it doesn't want to open the installer, you might try right-clicking it, going to properties, and hit the "allow" button next to the text that says "this file was downloaded from the Internet". This might make it run (but is usually not required...)

Running in compatibility for Windows 8 and Administrator mode seems to have worked. Thanks for the assistance.

Great, now I can get back into the mines. :)

I hope in the port to UE4 the installations would be more seamless.

Even for PG's full release it should be better as I will not package a UDK installer, but a custom one.

Anytime the game reaches the menu screen, it stays for about a second and then the game closes off. I have not been able to beta test it since this release.

I've placed back my user key in the config folders and this is still happening. What might be the case here?
