I have installed the .NET Framework 2.0 but it still says something about "Application configuration"...

Are you running windows vista? That is a problem with a corrupted windows profile. I got the same thing when I first installed Vista. Try creating a new profile and logging in to that.

Looks like a problem with the file association. Try running the installer without selecting any file associations, or download and extract the archive version (which doesn't require an installer).

Awesome program Nem, however i have to report that whenever i try to open a BSP file from Vampire - Bloodlines there is no profile to use and i also get this error "Error: VBSP version 17 not supported".

Is there any way to open these to view or do you have to release support in a new version?

Hi Nem, thanks for the GCFScape update!

Any chance of getting Crafty updated?

It's really a nice tool, I can run it, but it without any material nor textures. I tried to config the setup->profiles. but it doesn't help, i try all profiles provided with CSS client. And I try several versions of CSS, neither of them can show the material. Anyone can help on this?

I get an Error saying VBSP version 23 not supported when I try to load Dota 2 maps. Is there any chance anyone could fix that?

Hi Sulta!
From the looks of the new DoTA 2 .bsp files, it is using a slightly different compilation / compression method for things such as brush sizes and displacements. In order to fix this nem would probably have to create a whole new program for viewing DoTA maps. Even if you were able to trick crafty into opening the file without complaining, all you would probably get from it is a whole bunch of malformed structures. I could be wrong though, i haven't tried it yet. Sorry to disappoint you. :(
