GOG Creatures Exodus installer broken

It looks like GOG changed their installer for Creatures Exodus on March 30th, and the resulting changes have led to the game installing to an invalid path for Creatures 3 to run if you don't change it. The game now wants to install to C:\Users\[name]\Documents\Creatures Exodus by default. This leads to an unstable copy of C3 because the game looks for C:\Users\[name]\Documents\Creatures\Creatures 3\Images. In addition, even if you install to the "correct" directory under Documents\Creatures, you can't install the Mall Breeds using the EXE files, because they are looking for c:\users\[name]\documents\creatures \[game name]\My Agents (note the space after creatures) and you can't change that path to match the actual game path. I've written a report to GOG, but I wanted to give the community a heads up in case you need to re-install Creatures Exodus.

So I was hampered by the old registry entries from my previous installation. Once I wiped those out, I was able to re-install successfully. Just keep in mind that the installer now defaults to installing to "Creatures Exodus" instead of "Creatures", and the shortcut to C3 is now called Creatures Exodus as well. I only use the Docking Station link anyway, but it's a change I noticed.

I've noticed this issue today after wanting to play the game again after I had my computer wiped fully before and noticed it doesn't wanna start up at all and gives the error the file directory wouldn't exist
Tried alot and can't get it to work so I went back to play some other games in the series but it only made me wanna play creatures 3 more!
I hope this gets fixed asap


You don't have to live in pain
in want of things that hurt you more
You don't have to to suffer
for the things you've never had

GOG also gave me a link to the old installer, if people are still having trouble with the new one. Not sure how long the link will be up; I'd grab it just in case: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9n9lcilpyflb2yc/setup_creatures3_2.1.0.12.exe?dl=0
