Just to remind you:
Make sure you have UNCHECKED the option to 'hide extensions for known file types' in the Folder Options!
As I have only a german Windows I can only attach a picture of the german setting, but you might get it...

With this option ENABLED, it is not possible to correctly rename the file!
From orbiter.bin it might become orbiter.exe.bin or orbiter.bin.exe ...
this is very annoying (as it is the default).

:hesaid:

One of the first things I do after installing Windows is to disable that option, so I forgot that you might have to do it.

Thanks so much! That fixed it. I was converting it myself via file save. I must have saved it in an invalid coding. It's complicated. :facepalm: Thanks again!

For anyone who has problems with this in future, have a batch script! Just drop it in the same folder as your orbiter.exe (AKA: <Orbiter_root>) and run!
NOTE: This bypasses all verification processes. I take no responsibility for your Orbiter not working due to missing requirements. I also take no responsibility for any damage done to your data or hardware due to this script. (not that I can actually see any way this script could damage your computer, save for a miraculous coincidence.)

This is a pretty dumb script. Here it is in its entirety for reference:
Code:
COPY ".\orbiter.exe" ".\install\testinstall.exe"
DEL "orbiter.exe" /F
COPY ".\install\orbiter.bin" ".\orbiter.exe"
In future there may be a version which checks directory structure.

(Batch file .zip'd because uploading raw .bat files is, quite understandably, not allowed.)
