View Full Version : HLMV issues........need help

18-01-2004, 08:36 PM
When I try to view any player/weapon models with my HLMV, it give me this message..

".mdl is not a valid win32 application"

It's never happened like this before and after uninstalling/re-installing hlmv125, I still can't figure out how to get it working?

Any ideas?

ok, let me rephrase this then.....

I download hlmv from chumbalum soft and install it.

When I choose on a model/weapon to view it, it either shows as nothing or doesnt even work...".mdl is not a valid win32 application"

anyone have any ideas what to do to fix this?

Are you trying to open the .mdl files by clicking on them, or from inside HLMV itself?

If it's the former, you will have to set file associations before you can do that. Right-click on an .mdl file, select "Open With". Click on HLMV in the Programs list (if it ain't there you will need to browse for it), and check "Always use the selected program for this kind of file". Once you've done that you can open .mdl's by clicking on them directly.
