I'm having trouble with spads so I tried to reinstall it, and now that didn't even work. I checked that I have those files and I even tried with using 64-bit perl too, but it also failed (I have windows 7 64 bit). Any idea to what's the problem? Other people can install spads?
PS E:\games\spads> perl .\spadsInstaller.pl
This program will install SPADS in the current working directory, overwriting files if needed. The installer will ask you 10 questions to customize your installation and pre-configure SPADS. You can stop this installation at any time by hitting Ctrl-c. Note: if SPADS is already installed on the system, you don't need to reinstall it to run multiple autohosts. Instead, yo u can share SPADS binaries and use multiple configuration files and/or configuration macros.
1/10 - Which SPADS release do you want to install (stable,testing,unstable,contrib) [testing] ? NOTICE - [SpadsInstaller] Components are up to date, proceeding with installation... 2/10 - Please enter the Spring installation directory  ? E:\games\spring NOTICE - [SpadsInstaller] Checking Perl Unitsync interface module ERROR - [SpadsInstaller] Unable to load Perl Unitsync interface module (Can't load 'E:/games/spads/PerlUnitSync.dll' for module PerlUnitSync: load_file:The specified module could not be found at C:/Perl/lib/DynaLoader.pm line 191, <STDIN > line 2. at E:/games/spads/PerlUnitSync.pm line 11 Compilation failed in require at (eval 15) line 2, <STDIN> line 2.

Hmm, I get the same error still, it complains about PerlUnitSync.dll, same thing happens when I switch to win xp. Does it have to do with my spring installation? I didn't try to uninstall and reinstall spring yet.
When I tried with 64-bit perl I got a different error. But now I'm using perl 5.14 x86, and I uninstalled the 64-bit one and checked path variable etc.
ERROR - [SPADS] Unable to retrieve hashcode of map "DesertTriad.sd7" NOTICE - [SPADS] Close battle scheduled (reason: unable to retrieve map hashcode)
I tried checking for write acces to the map and mod folder in Spring instalaltion folder, and I took ownership and added full control to all users, but still that error. And I also tried with other maps.
I got a lot of errors with maps when installing spads, maybe it needs to regenerate those hashcodes, the directory was set to read only when I installed.
I also have some problem with installing Spads. I compiled spring and spring-dedicated from the git source. spring and spring-dedicated are located at /usr/local/bin/spring and the game by default is installed at /usr/local/share/games/spring
Then I ran the SpadsInstaller from my home directory and here is what I get:

"battle presets" are defined in battlePresets.conf , "hosting presets" are defined in hostingPresets.conf, and "global presets" are defined in spads.conf .
Yes but then I am doing it the right way? I want to make a preset to disable some units from BA. So I thought I just need to add a preset in the battlePresets.conf and that's what I did but it doesn't show in the lobby when I type
bibim I got everything working now. I noticed also that there is a file helpSettings.dat in the spads folder. At first I thought it was just a data file but then I opened it and it has all the documentation obviously.
So just wanted to suggest that you add a README.txt so it's easier for people to know where to look for help
