So, after installing the new 65 Update I found that several tracks
were no longer read by iGor. I did remember reading that the maps/files needed to have:
- Read-only ticked off
- Indexed ticked on

So I proceed on doing that. Found out that not all maps/files in the \tracks folder had this.
Apply this all of them, too. And the seasons folder, while I'm at it.
While it did Index everything, all the maps remained read-only!

And now iGOR recognizes none of the tracks at all!

Tried doing the same thing with the GPL folder, but the maps stay at read-only! All the files are not!
I tried changing the privilieges of the map so all 'users' can change things. Nope.

I really don't know how else to fix this.
Anyone having ideas how to do it?

Won't do it. It says that

"D:\Sierra\GPL\ is hidden or system. Skipped."

All folders remain read-only.
Should mention, probably, that the tick-box for it has a square instead of a check mark.

Square means that  only some files are ticked while some others are not.
If you click on it, it will go from squared to ticked to unticked.

Is gem+ and all other programs running as admin?

Yes, that is wanted to point out. None of the files are read-only. It only designates that the maps in the folder are.
It just reverts back after unticking it and Apply + OK it in 'Properties'.

If you mean Gem+, iGOR, VROC and GPLSM, yes.
The .exe for GPL itself are not. I don't recall them being required to be as well.

So after doing a fresh re-install and re-trying to install the 65 Mod Update, I think I have found the issue.

Archive Folders should be disabled.
What happens when installing the track files from the update is that it enables it, and causing iGor not to read it.
Disabling it makes iGor recognising the track again.

Yannick,
can I ask you a question since I am not sure if I understood correctly;
when you write "Archive Maps", you mean this option?

I don't understand what you are referring to as Maps.
Thank you :)

You're correct, Ginetto

Slipped a bit of Dutch in that sentence :D
Corrected it.

A folder is translated as 'map' in Holland, catches a lot of us out :P .

At least we have learned not to say we are a generation of undertakers :rolleyes: . Even Frank de Boer hasn't found any dead bodies in the closet as of late :D
