Stuck on step 9, bootleg keeps aborting
« on: 2015-04-09 04:23:50 »
After step 9 where, after I've downloaded the mods and they are all green and yellow. I have clicked run bootleg and it starts running and I receive this message.

"Checking Operating System...

Laying Bootleg Edit...
Checking Operating System...
Missing ff7.exe
Bootleg Aborting...

Removing setup files...
Please remain patient...
Completed Clean Up.

Bootleg Aborted!
There was a problem during installation.
The game files might be damaged.

Please do a FULL install of Final Fantasy VII to a NON-SYSTEM folder.
Make sure that all MODS are in the same Folder with Bootleg.exe.

Close all Open FF& files and folders before starting Bootleg.

Run Bootleg.exe as ADMINISTRATOR.
For help use the command line switch-- Bootleg /?
Press any key to continue..."

When i press a key the window shuts down. I've bought and downloaded the 2012 version from Square Enix.

My locations are in
Destination - C:\Final Fantasy\Final Fantasy 7 Remake
Mod Source - C:\Final Fantasy\Tifa's Package
Bootleg.exe - C:\Final Fantasy\Tifa's Package\Bootleg
Temporary Files - E:\ (which is a flash drive)

Brat Code - 11111201030000021110211111111002112901121121111200111

I don't really know what to do. I've searched through the forums with different key words and couldn't really find anything that matched my situation, so if someone can help me with this or lead me to another post that has the same problem with a resolution I would appreciate it!!! Feel free to be as rude as you want, as long as you help lol

Hi, D-Squiggles

So, it's not the good place for this answer, this section is for making tutorial you have section for bootleg questions HERE.

Do you have use the FF7 Game Converter ?

Do you having re-install completely FF7 ?


Use Tifa's Final Heaven, the new mod installer.

Bootleg-related questions should go in the dedicated board. As for your issues, it looks like a UAC or Anti-Virus software issue. Was the game installed prior to installing Bootleg? Which version is it? Did you use the Game Converter? Is the destination path properly set in BFE?
