I am trying to install Baldur's Gate 2 (GoG version) with these mods:


using BWP (english text).

However I keep seeing this on the command console whenever I try to install BWP.


"The minimum requirements are not met"

Despite downloading all the required mods and placing them in the same directory C:\BWS\BGII - SoA.

And it says it's listing the required mods, but lists none of them.

I tried following http://www.shsforums...s/#entry504045, but to no avail.


Has anyone else encountered this probelm before?

Is it somehow affected by how Win 8 is set up?

I had a similar issue in Win8 when I first was testing out the OS.


The only thing that let me fix it was to:


1. Start an elevated command promt.

2. Navigate to the directory.

3. Run the .bat


I could not get it to run as admin any other way.

I tried it as an admin too, but doesn't change anything.
