Ok so im having some issues getting this conversion installed, and im not sure why.

I have my IWD installed to c:\games\IcewindDale, Complete with IWD, HoF (ver 141), and Trials ontop (ver 142).
I have my BG2 installed to c:\games\BGII - SoA, complete with BG2, ToB and patch 26498.

I run it as admin (win7), installing it to C:\Games\Icewind Dale in BG2
It seems to accept the BG2 path ok, and copies accross a pile of data, but seems to get "unhinged" towards the end with the following lines, and throws an error when i put in the IWD path. (ive bolded the error bits)

================================================================
.....

ERROR: BIFF [C:/Games/IcewindDale/DATA/AR3600.BIF] cannot be loaded: Unix.Unix_error(20, "stat", "C:/Games/IcewindDale/D

If I remember correctly this is the basic .biff error the v22900 throws at you, use the latest WeiDu.exe from the Windows binary archive. (v23100 --->)

The first warning is just that, a warning that says you have no WeiDu mods installed in the directory... in this case it's actually a good thing, as you have a fresh install.
Yes... I am probably still editing the post above.

I think actually the main problem is that the installer doesn't like directory names with spaces. Try C:\Games\IWD_in_BG2 instead. (I'll see if v7 can be more forgiving.)

You are correct. An install path with no spaces did the trick.
