So, I'm trying to download and install Mxvted 4.2, so I can see more of what can be edited, but what I seem to be downloading appears to be missing the executable?

The current contents of the Mxvted4.2 taht I'm able to download appears to be the following files:
  • data.txt 4kb
    mxvted.GID 1 kb
    mxvted.hlp 109kb
    mxvted.txt 6kb
I was originally thinking it might be my virus scanner surreptitiously eating files, but turning it off didn't seem to fix the issue, so I'm wondering, was there just at hiccup in the upload?

Thank you,

Harry Voyager

It's now on the XWAU download page.
Download the file from there and run it

Ah crap, I think that one's on me.
My virus scanner ate the bloody thing and I didn't check before providing the file for Forceflow to upload.
So the one on the DL page is missing its exe file as well.

A fixed version should be available for download now. Sorry about that.

Thank you very much. I re-downloaded it, and it seem to work now.

I think my virus scanner has given up on my modding directory; it didn't actually flag this one as harmful.
