    Hello my friends have been playing Civ4 for a long time and got me involved in it and want me to install bug mod since it is so useful. Everytime I try to install bug mod 4.4 for multiplayer use it never works it comes up when installing saying:

    "Error opening file for writing:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Beyond the Sword\Mods\BUG Mod 4.4\Assets\Art\BUG\Arm.dds

    Click About to stop the installation,
    Retry to try again, or
    Ignore to skip this file."

    Every time I press retry it just brings up the same thing. If I hit Ignore it says everything until BUG\BUGMantis.dds and I can only suspect it does this for every single file while installing (I have clicked ignore for a while and it seems to be as I suspect). The BUG mod installs fine for single player but then doesn't come up when playing multiplayer. Anyone having the same problem or know what is wrong?

    Whoa, that, "Run as adminstrator" tip did the trick for me.
    I can't thank you enough, a simple solution for a problem that
    took me hours to try and figure out.


    Thanks EmperorFool.
