-------------------
1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)

2) Depending on your server configuration, you will need to change the permissions of the advappfiles folder to either 775 or 777

3) Import the product XML file (product-advapp.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP.

4) Take some time to set the options, application types and application postions in the new Application Forms area of AdminCP.
(It's really not that hard!)

5) Make sure this modification is marked as 'Installed' on vBulletin.org!
(If you want to get notices from me about updates for this modification.)

* UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS *
-----------------------------
1) Upload the contents of the 'upload' folder to your forum's root.
(If your forum's location is http://www.example.com/forums/, the root is /forums/)

2) Import the product XML file (product-advapp.xml) into the Product Manager in AdminCP and be sure "Allow Overwrite" is set to 'Yes'.

3) vB 4.2.x ONLY - Go to ACP->Settings->Options->Application Form Settings and set 'vB 4.2 Community Menu Update' to 'Yes'.

What version of Vb are you running?

I've tested it on 4.0.7 and 4.1.1.

And if you could post the error, that would help too.

I just ran the install on a 4.1.3 site and it installed without a problem.

I'll need the actual error you get to track this down.

It almost sounds like you uploaded the files, but didn't install the add-on in Plugins & Products -> Manage Products.

You haven't installed the add-on.

Install the add-on in Plugins & Products -> Manage Products.

At least that's what it looks like to me.

It is also possible you got a bad download. Try downloading and installing again.

I didn't mean to imply that.

I edited my reply, the only other thing is you might have gotten a bad download.

Try downloading and install again.

I've now personally installed this on 4.0.7, 4.1.1 and 4.1.3 without any problems.

By default, there's no forum chosen.
