ok, so i've been having "beginners luck"? or shall i say "Newbies lack of knowledge" with some of the programs that are installed with HEK, so i'm starting from the beginning once again. the last program i tried running was Hek Tool, and it didnt run properly. i found out this was because i had the HEk installed in the wrong folder (was in the combat evolved folder) so i'm just about to upgrade to the CE once again....so do i let the upgrade install where it wants to (like i did last time, it basically had just over-ridden the combat evolved folder) or should i make a new install folder beside the Combat evolved folder in Microsoft Games?
thanks.

ok , so i've done that,installed HEK+ into the Halo Custom Edition folder and didnt change anything in "options\settings" and now it tells me this:

Tag Extractor
the folder 'C:\Program files\Microsoft Games\Halo Combat Evolved\Tags' does not exist.Set this under Tools>Settings in the Plugins>Tag converter settings panel to a folder that exists.

before when i downloaded and installed HEK+, everything worked fine. what gives??

So um... set your new directory to be inside the Halo Custom Edition instead of Halo Combat Evolved folder?

Unless you created it it doesn't. However if you installed the HEK then C:\Program files\Microsoft Games\Halo Custom Edition\Tags will.

ok the tags folder was there, it was the "Plugins\Tag definitions default file folder i was confused about, found that it didnt exist in Custom Edition, i hadn't extracted the Hek+ folder into Custom Edition folder, but just placed the folder inside, so fixed it and now it works....DOH!
thanks for the help!!
