Addon button doesn't exist?
#1
I recently attempted to install GHI, but I've hit a bit of a snag....namely, upon logging on and getting to the character selection screen, there is no Addon button.

I can remedy this by running WoW as Administrator (Vista) and I never had this problem back when I played retail oddly enough. However, when I play the game in retail, GHI isn't even in the addon list....but instead, I get odd choices like UIBlizzard_GMChat, among others.

Any idea what's going on here?

Hm. The most common problem I saw with addons and Vista was installing it correctly:
When you unzipped it, did you move the internal files directly into the addon folder instead of
the whole unzipped file? By internal files I mean the ones that show when you open the unzipped file.

What is the exact path of your Addons folder?

C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Data\enUS\Interface\Addons , Currently.

Though I have also tried dumping the damn thing in various places in the WoW Folder.

NOTE: While running WoW In Admin mode on Vista, I can access the button, but my mods aren't there...

Instead I get:

Blizzard Arena UI
Blizzard Auction UI
Blizzard Barber UI
Ect, Ect, Ect.

World of Warcraft/Data/EnUS/Interface/Addons?
It should simply be
World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons

There's your problem right there.

I gave that a shot in admin mode and normal Hero. No dice. The addons don't appear in Admin, the damn button still doesn't appear in normal. Thanks though.

Default paths for addons:

Windows XP "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns"
Vista "C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns"
Machintosh "Machintosh HD/Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns"
I Am the Sea

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)

Well... you could always download the curse client and use that to install and manage all your addons :D It doesn't take up much space, and makes life easier, haha. I had the same problem as you, the Addons folder wasn't there, and you can't just make an Addons file, so... use Curse ^^

Well, after extensive looking about, screaming at Vista, and tears, I was able to get things to work. Thanks Kretol, and everyone else!
