No one else has reported cases like yours:
  • Windows said it couldn't find python.exe even when the full path was explicitly typed.
    You no longer have that problem, for some reason (link).
  • You downloaded html from github and clobbered your main.py.
    You have been instructed how to download GMM (link).

What problem do you have now?

Have you installed Python 2.7, and what message did you get when it failed?

Can't tell if you're being a troll or just completely arrogant.

I deleted the src folder immediately after extracting 1.5 without checking its contents as I know 'src' folders are source codes.

1.6 had a bunch of extra files but no src folder.

Stop assuming everyone is a developer.


I'm not even going to bother responding to the disk space argument, as you clearly can't understand what 'small OS SSD' is.

Excellent.

There's a bug in GMM 1.7's modman.exe that prevents it from ever finding Python, so it will always say that Python is missing. :roll:

Sorry. By that I meant: What message do you get when you follow the steps I linked here?

Those steps are a workaround to start the manager from a prompt, without using the broken modman.exe.

In other words, what message did you get when main.py failed?

Sorry if you already solved this issue earlier, but, with over 80 pages of posts, I didn't bother to look hard for answers.

After placing a mod in the mods directory, opening up GMM, and patching a mod, I received an error message stating:

2013-04-02 21:06:42 ERROR: unpack requires a string argument of length 8

2013-04-02 21:06:42 INFO:

Any ideas on what I should do? :?:

I see. You had trouble with the third step.
  • Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories.
  • Right-click "Command Prompt" to run as an admin.
  • Type this, then hit enter: cd "c:\Program Files (x86)\GMM"
  • Type this, then hit enter: main.py
Remember the quotes when you type cd "..."
