Old map installer and Steam not getting along

The old installer doesn't seem to like Steam's install path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cossacks II Battle for Europe on my machine, Win7 64-bit).

An example of a map that doesn't work in Steam is this:

Any workaround for this?

What version of the game are you running?

Do other maps install correctly? Or is it just the old installer?

If so I can try to replace it with the new installer for you.

Just the old installer. New one works fine.

okay, tell me what maps you would like and I will see if I can change them over to the new style installer for you.

Thanks

Well, all the 3+ player maps would be awesome.

I am having exactly the same problem, old installer says the game is running, new one works fine.

Same here, is there an instruction anywhere on how to manually install skirmish maps? Thanks for any advise!

I'm having the same issue, me and my two brothers are looking for 3-4 player skirmish maps for multiplayer, but alas the installer (the .exe file that requests you put in the games directory) doesn't properly work- once input it merely tells me it 'can't' and if the game is running to close it down and try again (The games not running). We've all got Cossack's 2 Battle For Europe on Steam.

Anything i can do?
