I've downloaded the zip file per the instructions and extracted the mine4erf.bat file that was the only file in there. When I run the mine4erf.bat file, I get a message popping up confirming that I want to run the file, I click Run and then a screen flashes briefly and then... nothing. The box that flashed by so quickly simply stated:
'.' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here.

    Hey, sorry about that- an attempted fix for some of the issues we'd had with the download not working, ironically, broke it.

    Try redownloading and running it again- I've put up a new zip which should fix the problem.

    visual echo: When you extract it, are you getting a download-and-extract.ps1 in the same folder as mine4erf.bat now?

    Khorak: Great! Glad to hear the fix worked for someone at least, haha. Now to work out what else needs fixing.

    I am now, yes. Should I be doing something with it? (I am rather technologically inept, I hope that's not a stupid question.)

    No, that's just a thing that mine4erf.bat is using and supposed to be trying to call, and it being missing was the bug I fixed, so I was checking that'd gotten to you right at least.

    It might be worth extracting it all, then shift+right-clicking on the directory it's in and choosing "Open command prompt here" or "Open Powershell window here", whichever it is that appears on your system, and then running ".\mine4erf.bat" from there, and reporting back what the error message it shows is. That might help me work out what's going wrong.

    I opened it with the Powershell window, and got:

    PS C:\Program Files (x86)\Mine4Erf> .\mine4erf.bat
    '.' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    Hmm. It might be worth trying extracting it somewhere else- Program Files is a kind of special folder on recent Windows, and requires special privileges to write to sometimes. Maybe C:\mine4erf, or a folder under your C:\Users\<username> folder. If this turns out to be it I'll add a troubleshooting item for it on the mine4erf page.

    Putting Mine4Erf in your "C:\Program Files\Mine4Erf\" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mine4Erf\" folder can run into all sorts of permissions and UAC issues. It would be better to move it to "C:\Mine4Erf\". Whether that will resolve your issue I'm not sure. (whoops... ninja'd)

    Progress! I extracted the docs to C:\Users\Robyn\Mine4erf, and it all seems to be working now. Thanks so much for the help!

    Thanks for sticking at it! Now I know about this, I've added this to the troubleshooting FAQ on the mine4erf page.
