DMT Tool, one friend cannot build DMT mods

Recommended Posts

Been struggling for hours to get this to work on my friends PC. I don't have a clue why it won't build without errors. Whenever he is going to build the mods, he always gets this error.

~ModInfo.xml is in use by another process
, and if he removes every ModInfo.xml, it says that it cannot access *.dll file and it aborts. He tried with a clean install of 7 days to die, but still the same problem occurred. He is running on a pirated Windows 10, it may be the culprit, but I dunno really. It's like the program cannot or don't have access to the files, so it stops there. Help appreciated. I said to him to format and install a fresh legit windows 10, but he is too lazy for that. I just hope this can be solved without doing it. xD

 

Tried with Processexplorer to find out which process that is using the file. But there were many processes that were highlighted and some didn't make sense. Why would an audioprocess use an XML file? I am out of ideas now...

The workaround for this is to just copy over the built files to the person that could not build the files in DMT. Would be cool to know why this problem exist. It was the same problem for another friend.

This can happen if DMT is pointing to a Mods folder inside your 7 Days To Die folder, in the same place DMT wants to copy the files over.

 

DMT's Mods folder should be pointing somewhere else, outside of the target game folder. DMT will copy over the Mod information to the target game folder when its ready.

I've put a warning in for the next release of DMT if the user tries to use the in-game mods folder as their DMT folder.
