Ah yes, that'd make sense.
I do have a theory on the pager crash though, and it's the only thing I can think of. I think we can safely eliminate the SFX and the SCM as potential causes because other people have those and experience no problems. MM also tested his ASI on a wide range of EXEs (not sure if he did all, but I think he implemented the functions through Hammer's VC versioning module, so all EXEs should be fine) - that should rule that out too.
Do you still have pager.txd in your LC\TXD directory? A while ago (actually, July 26) I was talking to MM over MSN and he linked me to what was then his latest ASI package, and said that pager.txd was no longer needed as the pager graphics were now in hud.txd. If you don't have pager.txd and you have a txd viewing program, open up hud.txd and make sure that you have brassk
in there (those are the pager files).
I wouldn't assume that this would make any difference, although not removing the VC6 ASI causes problems, so this might be on the right track
. I don't have the update package so I don't know whether pager.txd was removed from it, or whether there are instructions to remove pager.txd with it, but you might as well give it a try.
Please post and let us know either way
