Spore ModAPI not installing dark injection (beta 2.1.6)

Unread postby lucaswoop » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:13 pm

Hello, I tried to install dark injection, but I get an error saying that the mod couldn't be installed, and that the "requested operation requires elevation". Does anybody know what this means? If you could help I'd be really appreciative.

That means you forgot to run the ModAPI Easy Installer as Administrator.

Oh, that worked. Thank you! Does this mean I also have to run the launcher and uninstaller as admin as well?

Uninstaller yes. Launcher...not necessarily, but if something bursts into flames, you may as well try it.
