Shouldn't this topic get merged with the other one with the same name?
This error message usually means that Knossos tries to do something dumb and launch FSO but not using a proper FSO build. My suggestion - you're probably trying to run MediaVPs and if not, you should do it - gear in the topright corner, "Knossos" section, check what is the preferred engine stability and check the "Show engine builds in mod list" box. I suggest to use the "RCs" as there's the 19.0.0-RC1 version now. Save the settings, get back to Home page and update FSO. Then in mod settings set the mod you want to play to use this version and try launching it.
OK, if this topic belongs elsewhere, then please move it, but let me know where to.
I downloaded and successfully installed latest FSO. I did not nclude any mods with the installation so I don't know if that presents a problem
for using FSO. It still will not run FS2, giving the "unable to find executable. Aborted." message.
" check what is the preferred engine stability and check the "Show engine builds in mod list" box" I do not find any such box to check. I have chosen "RCs" but I
do not understand the "as there's the 19.0.0-RC1 version now" reference.
I saved what settings were changed, but still, I get nowhere.
As an aside, in case things do eventually get sorted out, please suggest 2-3 very good mods from the plethora available.
Thanks for the assistance, and patience!
