Well ... after MANY hours of trying everything, I have discovered that the frontend and the database must be installed in c:\unit! Any other units return the same 7zip error! In unit c:\ I have created a folder named PROGS and inside it a folder called Gamebase. I have put EXTRAS, SIDS, GAMES and SCREENSHOTS in another unit, and everything now works fine!
Thanks anyway for the help ! ;)

Only the last question: in 1.2 version the Longplay files runs directly thru a Mediaplayer, because they was in .avi format.
Gamebase 1.3 search for the same files in .RAR format, and I think that this is very stupid and useless, because the size is almost the same, and when I select a longplay, the program open the file thru a WinRAR window, but not run it. Then I must doubleclick the .avi longplay file inside the archive and finally the video play thru window mediaplayer. There is a possibility to simplify the procedure?

Cheers.

Richard.

Solved also the second problem. I have created for each supported game a new extras menu called "Longplay" (I have deleted any preconfigured one), and pointed directly to the each uncompressed .avi file ... ;)

I have created a new completed version of Gamebase 64 with everything needed ready preconfigured (emus, players, sids, games, extras, screenshots, longplays and so on). This version doesn't need any kind of installation. It's enough to depack the archive to c:\ and doubleclick a register key ... all done! The emulator is ready to work at his best! I wish to know if I can post it in a dedicated newsgroup and/or any service hosting like Megaupload, Hotfile, Fileserve, and post the link directly here, without broke any rule, copyright or netiquette.
Please let me know.

Richard.
