Is that a problem that the file is missing? Are you using Knossos?

I'm using FSO and I checked the FAQ and all the files it said to make sure are in the installed folder are indeed there.

I'm guessing you're using the FSO Installer. Which FAQ are you talking about (there are multiple around here)? Do you have a fs2_open_3_8_0...exe file in your FS2 directory? If you can find the installer's logs, they might be helpful as well.

According to ngld's FSOInstaller monitor, FSO 3.8.0 can't be downloaded because the links for RADIOBUTTON_GROUP and windows-3.8.0 are both dead.
The Installer's logs are in a logs folder in the same directory where the Installer jar file is.
Finally, if you're just getting FSO set up for the first time, I'd recommend using Knossos instead.  It's a lot more foolproof to use.

Thank you all for the help. 
Knossos did the trick.

It's great to hear that Knossos helped you. :)  If you encounter any problems or have questions / feedback, feel free to join us on Discord (link is in the menu at the top) or post in the Knossos thread.

@PIe: That's actually a problem with the mirror monitor. Goober apparently changed the format the installer uses for metadata. I haven't updated the script which is why it mistakenly adds those invalid download links. The actual link to the zip file is fine so I have no idea why the download would fail.

The file format hasn't changed, but RADIOBUTTON_GROUP is a new token.
