Thread: Lich installation help

  1. Default Lich installation help

    After 2 days of frustration and trying to get lich installed on 2 different computers, I cannot seem to get past the "sqlite3" installtion, I always get the prompt when starting lich, but it never installs.

    I am actually willing to pay someone smarter than me $20 to remote into my machine and get this running for me. Any takers? Please hit my inbox.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    If Win10 you should just download the self-installer found here: https://gswiki.play.net/Lich_(software)#Windows and let it do it for you. Easy peasy, pumpkin squeezey.

    Can you tell us what version of Windows you're on and what install methods/directions you've done so far?

    I am on Win10, I did try the installer after my initial failures and was very hopeful as it started installing gems and what not, still got the "sqlite3" error though, except this time, it went into a loop of repeatedly trying to install sqlite3 instead of just "going nowhere".

    When I used the installer it installed a newer version of ruby, not one of the ones Tillmen recommended, and I thought that might be the issue?

    Also - tried the installer on the the second computer and the file got quarantined by my work anti-virus, so THAT's out... also I might be in a little trouble...

    Before you tried the Win10 installer had you gone and deleted the old versions of ruby and of lich completely?

    I uninstalled them using the control panel, looking at the instructions now, I am not 100% sure if i deleted the ruby folders after I uninstalled, I will try again when I get home.

    Thanks,

    My experience has been that you need to do a bit of a deep dive to get all of the old stuff out before you try again. Let us know.

    Well, after 3 tries of "clean up" and install, I actually got the lich "game entry" window to open, but when i hit the "play" button, the launcher closes but the game does not launch.

    Any ideas? I am able to enter the game via the simu launcher using stormfront.

    Thanks,

    I am getting this text from the debug file, "temp" folder:

    2019-06-17 17:39:43: error: failed to find the Simutronics launcher

    The launcher is definitely insdtalled....

    Maybe a path error?

    Thanks,

    For some odd reason, when I used the Win10 installer, I had the exact same issue. I just deleted the original shortcut that the installer put on my desktop and created a new desktop shortcut to lich.rbw and it worked fine.
