Help Please - I'm stuck - easy question

Having problems installing EM? Let's fix that
Forum rules
DO NOT give out any FTP passwords to anyone! There is no reason to do so! If you need help badly enough, create a temporary FTP account that is restricted to only the files that you need help with and give the information for that. Giving out FTP information can be very dangerous!

Help Please - I'm stuck - easy question

Post by DummyNewB »

Trying to install EasyMOD on my local machine and I can't get past step 3 because the installer needs to be able to create a directory but does not have access? How to I make so that access is granted for making directories? I know this should be easy right?

I tried using the FTP option but I don't know what the username or password is. Can you tell I'm a real laymen on this subject......

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have never attempted to install EM on a Windows environment, but I imagine that the Username and Password would be an Admin Username and Password that you would use to log into Windows. Once logged in, EM would then have full privileges to do whatever it needs to do on your PC. What do you use to log into Windows? That might be what you would use for the EM install too...
