Windows 10 Users

Windows 10 users may encounter permission issues when trying to run the .bat file in Windows (even right-clicking and selecting “Run As Administrator” may not work). A solution is to run the file from the Command Prompt. Follow these instructions to run the file from the Command Prompt:

  1. Press the Windows key and type “cmd”
  2. One of the search results will be “Command Prompt” — right-click on it and select “Run as administrator”
  3. The Command Prompt window will open and will default to some directory – you will need to navigate to the folder that has the .bat file in it
  4. If the drive that your game is installed on is the C: drive:
    1. Use the “cd..” command to move up the directory tree until you’re simply at the C: drive
    2. Once there, type: cd c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\resident evil 4\ (or whatever the path is to the folder with the .bat file)
  5. If the game is not installed on your C: drive:
    1. Use the “cd..” command to move up the directory tree until you’re simply at the C: drive
    2. Once there, type the letter of the drive that the game is installed on (for example: D:) — The command prompt should now show the new drive letter instead of C:\
    3. Type: cd d:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\resident evil 4\ (or whatever the path is to the folder with the .bat file)
  6. Once you are in the folder with the .bat file, type the name of the batch file to run it: (for example, “install-castle-release.bat“)
  7. The installer should now copy the files for you
  8. Start the game and ensure that HD Textures are selected in the Video options for the game
