Need some help getting Psy-Q to work right.

Post by Sabudum » December 1st, 2022, 6:39 am

Hello, I've made a Virtual Machine with WinXP in order to run Psy-Q, I have followed the following tutorials:

https://www.psxdev.net/help/psyq_install.html

For setting up the environment I used the automatic method for WinXP present here:

viewtopic.php?f=49&t=206

And for creating a project and compiling I followed this:

https://www.psxdev.net/help/psyq_hello_world.html

But when I try to compile the example project, I just get a "Access Denied" error and haven't been able to figure out why.

Can someone please shed some light on the issue?

Many thanks in advance.

Looks like a security permission issue. It may not be able to write the temp files during compilation.

Thanks for the reply, how do I verify permissions for the temp folders?

I have applied Full permissions to "Everyone", including Auditing permissions, and defined the owner of the folders as "Administrators".

Still getting the same error.

Alright! Found the culprit!

In this topic:
viewtopic.php?f=49&t=206
The provided .reg file that sets up the env variables, has all the paths with double backslashes, I edited the Environment Variables manually and removed all the duplicated backslashes, and it worked, the file there should be updated.

Thanks for the help!

Ah, that makes sense. It means all the file paths were broken. That topic is old anyway (it's from 2013). I'll reference this topic in it instead as a warning.
