I just purchased a new Windows 7 machine that will be dedicated to run the twgs on. Also purchased a new router. I installed TWGS and entered my reg codes. When I import a TWA file and bang the game I only get stock ships and planets, It shows registration code and gold code when I look in the edit. But I am getting none of the ship and planet edits in the game. Can someone help me out and let me know what I am doing wrong. Thanks!

Try this .. bang a new game , and make it gold 10k or better .. you will probably be prompted to add your codes again.

Do so , and then go back and import your other games.
For some reason TWGS has to do the codes 2 times.

Let us know if this helps.

On windows 7, you cannot install it under the c:\program files\
directory, OR the c:\program files (x86)\ directory. If you do
the latter, even as admin, it won't read or write anything
because the directory gets truncated internally by TWGS.

What you need to do is un-install the program, remove all
references to it in the registry, then reinstall in something
short like c:\twgs\ and it should work. I had this exact issue
when installing on the new navhaz server (which runs 2008
x64).
