I have tried to install the Unity Web Player multiple times. I have installed, installed again, unistalled, reinstalled, installed over, installed Unity Setup 2.6.1.....
I have downloaded UnityWebPlayer.exe from my son's Chaotic site and from NASA. Every time I run the program it says it has installed, but everytime a click a link to start it, it asks to install again.
I went to this site http://unity3d.com/webplayer/version/ and it says... Unity Plugin version: not installed Unity Engine version: not installed
I am not totally sure you should download our webplayer from any site other than ours. No-one has the rights to host our webplayer other than us, so please be careful if you download from unauthorised sites.
I would recommend the following:
If you are unable to play games based on Unity webplayer please follow these steps:
a) Close all browsers.
b) Use Control Panel Add/Remove Programs to remove the Unity Web Player from your machine.
c) Reboot your machine.
d) Download from our website a new copy of the latest webplayer plugin (http://unity3d.com/webplayer/) and save the file to your desktop.
e) Close all browsers.
f) Run the webplayer installer.
g) Once the installer had finished, visit our website at the following address:
a) Log onto your mac with a user account that has admin privileges.
b) Close all web browsers
c) Delete the file called:
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/Unity Web Player.plugin
d) Empty the trash.
e) Reboot the Mac and log in with an admin account.
If the webplayer has installed correctly, and your machine is capable of playing Unity content, then you should see our demo running in your browser. If you can see our demo then other games should run also. If you do not see our demo running, please tell us in as much detail as possible what happens at each of the steps above.
Same here, nothing works for me. I followed the instructions written above but every time I try to install Unity web Player the window pops up
Error opening file for writing: Unity/WebPlayer/UnityBugReporter.exe Click Abort to stop the installation, retry to Try again, or Ignore to Skip this file.
So, I always have to cancel the installation, unfortunately. I guess I have to find games which do not require this weird player.
The demos work great for me, but my game (Battlestar Galactica Online) does not work properly. Running on Mac OS X (10.5). Demos play fine, when I try to run the game though, about halfway through loading it says "Error launching Unity Player"
