Game won't open after downloading Dark Injection

For all those problems people post here that aren't actually related to Dark Injection. No hard feelings - I'd rather risk a few misdiagnosis than miss out on real Dark Injection issues someone wasn't 100% sure about.

Game won't open after downloading Dark Injection

I tried to download Dark Injection, and the game wouldn't open. I tried to open it with the Spore ModAPI Launcher, and these error windows appeared. I'm not sure if it's a problem with the game itself or the other mods I have downloaded ( :rp: , :sab: , Psi's Unparented Foot and Hand, Tklarenb's Dinosaur Heads), but for now, I can't open the game.
If anyone could help, that would be great!

I can't see the screenshots, but I believe I am having the same issue. When loading the game using Spore ModAPI launcher before or after installing darkspore, I get an error 5 runtime error, and it says it doesnt have permissions to inject the mod files or it gives this error:

That's an entirely different issue. I've found a fix for the error in your screenshot, Error 87 (the parameter is incorrect), but have yet to locate the cause of Error 5 (Access is Denied). As to why you haven't received the fix for Error 87? I haven't put it out to the public yet. That will change at some point in the near future, for obvious reasons.

Also, please don't refer to Dark Injection as "Darkspore". Those two terms are entirely separate, and using them as if they're interchangeable (Which they aren't) jeopardizes the mod's legal safety.

Sorry, dark injections ;)
You are gonna want to go over your site if you are concerned about using the term 'darkspore' as it's used a lot to describe this mod.

I posted the second error because I am ALSO getting that error. It's a good idea to read the whole post before posting a reply.

I was able to fix the issue by migrating my game purchase to origin and modding that instead. It seems it's steam that's blocking permissions for the code injection.

That's no accident. I'm not afraid of admitting that DI is what it is.

I see that now. Your wording left me a tad uncertain, but that clarifies. Sorry about the confusion.

No sher, shitlock. Why do you think I did just that before posting?

Funny how these things work...Steam Spore used to be the bane of the modding scene's existence, then we figured out how to make our mods work with it, and now I'm seeing increasing evidence that Steam Spore has started to find other ways to cause problems for us... .-.
