Description

I have found a situation where the "Could not find Data Files location" appears multiple times within the launcher. To reproduce:

  1. Load OpenMW without any data files (this will show this message)
  2. Click the "Run Installation Wizard…" button
  3. When the wizard appears, click the close button of the window
  4. Click the "Yes" button in the dialog confirming that you want to exit the wizard.
  5. The "Could not find Data Files location" dialog will appear again. Click cancel.
  6. The "Could not find Data Files location" dialog appears yet again. Click cancel.
  7. Finally arrive on the main screen.

I think the proper behavior should be as follows:

  1. Load OpenMW without any data files (this will show this message)
  2. Click the "Run Installation Wizard…" button
  3. When the wizard appears, click the close button of the window
  4. Click the "Yes" button in the dialog confirming that you want to exit the wizard.
  5. Arrive on the main screen (thus skipping the additional "Could not find Data Files location" dialogs)

History

Also discovered that on the "Could not find Data Files location" dialog in step 6, if you click the "Run Installation Wizard…" button, then both the Launcher main menu and the Installation Window are open, which is otherwise impossible.
