Hey i downloaded the client to try the game, but the install would not work. 

Would go to preparing to install finish and then stop.

Anyone have an idea ?

    Did you get an error saying the file was corrupt or did it just stop?  If it just stopped, go into the directory and see if you have either sb.exe or shadowbane.exe.  I believe sb.exe is the patcher, so running that should get you up and moving.  If it didn't actually install any folders, I don't think you have any other choice than to re-download the installer.  Either that or you can go on eBay or something and pay a buck for an actual disk.

    Hmmm... don't know what that's about.  As far as I can remember, I believe the download should have been about 800 mb or a gig (have had it installed so long I don't know how much more they included in the download) for just the zipped install files.  Was your download that big?  If you don't have any kind of sb or ubi files then I'm guessing the actual download didn't happen, not installer problems.  Re-download.  Can't think of anything else that would help you.

    I am having the same problem with installanywhere. Targetinvocation exemption error in the java script. No idea what that is and i run xp home edition service pack 2.

    I have no idea what "Installanywhere" is or why you guys are having any problems at all.  Just go here and download the zip:

    http://www.gamedaily.com/shadowbane/pc/game-downloads/2014/

     

    Open the zip and install.   Easy as pie.

    p.s. Any third party program that "Helps" you download anything or "Helps" you install anything is a bad idea.

    You are confused installanywhere is like install setup in the game software.  Its not 3rd party as in I downloaded it. Its like another form of installshield. So basically still screwed.

    Hmmm.... I don't know what that error is.  I'd suggest heading over here: http://ubbforums.ubi.com/postlist.php?Cat=&Board=sb_support_pc to the official hardware and software help forum.  Shadowbane has a large population of real deal techies that'll definately be of more help in this area.  Hope you get some help.

    I also am having problems with the installer, i've download shadowbaneinstaller.zip which is 891.5 MB from two different sources, fileplanet and gamedaily, and both have given me the same problem.



    I unzip the installer, and attempt to run it.  But it gives me the error:



    "The magic number did not match.



    Please get another copy of the installer."





    Any help would be appreciated.
