I can't remember how to install the TK!
I unzip it to a "New Folder" then ran "Setup.exe" and pointed it to the FA folder.
Afterwards when I clicked on the TK icon I got "Device I/O error"

Re-installed and patched FA, no-go, re-installed FA letting it install wherever it wanted to ( I had it installed into a "games" folder whereas FA wants to install on the root of the drive not even in "program files" ) still a no-go.
No FATK for me.
To be clear the game runs fine, just no TK.

What operating system are you using? I have not installed FATK for a long time either but I have not had any issues using it...

Are you on a 32 or 64 bit machine?

32bit, XP Pro SP3.
Other than much more RAM I haven't made any changes to this machine since the last time TK was running.
I DL'd another TK off Zephs page but same result.

And of course the TK installs fine on my ancient slow Dell laptop.

Is FA in the C:\JANES\Fighters Anthology\ folder? That might be the issue if it isnt...

You can move FA to any folder you want to after its installed and patched.

And then manually edit the shortcut on your desktop to match the corrected location...

If that isnt the problem do you want me to send you my FATK copy?

I installed it both ways on the laptop and it ran fine both ways, so it's just this quirky Gateweak again.

So'z today the laptop started throwing off "failure to set video mode 2" errors!
Did the re-install dance a few times and relized it was only fritzing after the FA patch was installed. Seems I fixed it by running it in Win 95 256 colors and 600x800. Had weirdness with the TK on the laptop too. It would CTD if I didn't build the HUD with the new plane?!?!?!? weird. S'ok now it seems, I build on the laptop and fly on the PC.

That is some strange stuff! Been buried for the last few days. Working out hard trying to recover from my crash last fall, working on the website, and working on FAF stuff plusd working on real life work...

Haven't had 5 minutes to myself for days. Kind of sucks...

Seems I'm building 182 planes, I can clean out all the PTS and HUD files before the build but if I don't keep the HUD file for the Xian H-6D it will CDT! weird, as always with FA.
