I have just finished reinstalling Halo CE and have updated it to 1.10 and after wards i attempted to install OS 4.0 but it continuously tells me that "The folder path contains invalid characters" My Halo ce is installed to "G:\Program Files (x86)\Halo Custom Edition" I've tried reinstalling OS and Halo CE but no luck. Any help on this?

There have been a number of people complaining that the Opensauce installer can be a bit temperamental. It might be worth submitting a bug report over at https://bitbucket.org/KornnerStudios/opensauce-release/issues. Firescythe is still actively working on bugs and issues.

For future reference, it's much easier to avoid potential installation errors by using an inherently neutral directory (one that does not require special permissions to read or write to because nothing and no-one owns it).

These can be created under the top level of your drives.

Ex: C:\Games\Halo Custom Edition or C:\Games\FPS\Halo CE

This also makes the organization of and access to your games and their installation directories much easier.

Default HDD FTW. If it's not C:\ your OS installer is most likely going to pee.
