i downloaded the (whichever you had listed above).  i did not deactivate my av, and everything came in fabulous.  installed cfsm, it starts going through my dlc, then hangs and gives me the "paint" message again.  when it does this i cannot get back into cfsm to check the log, so i am stuck with just closing the error window which then shuts cfsm completely.  i did go into the program manager and uninstall the existing cfsm, then installed the new one.  this was when it started going through the dlc instead of throwing up the message right away.  but deleting the existing did not seem to correct it completely.   i'm getting anxious as it looks like this is getting closer and closer to being ready to run, just if we can find the hangups on this one.   i'm open to suggestions


btw, thanks for all your time and help on this.  really do love your work

your getting my hopes up...  i tried downloading the .rar file without changing any of my av program, and it loads and saves.  wonderful.  i tried installing and the program starts up like normal, starts checking my existing dlc files, then stops with a popup box that has   paint   in the top left corner and the text:  



paint cannot read this file

this is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported.


this also shows a paint icon on the task bar for the popup window


any suggestions??  i haven't seen this one before.  i tried deleting the file, but the message keeps coming back and once i red x or OK the box, it closes out cfsm.


p.s. i did deactivate my av and reran the cfsm, but no change

this may not be completely relevant to the first question, but i for one really enjoy the rocksmith experience.  i have a shelf of music/tab that i mess with from time to time, and i too check out justin and the other youtubers offering online instruction. 


the biggest thing i find with RS is that it's ready when i am.  i don't have to search for videos or dig out tab.  it seems my schedule any more is a few minutes here and there, with the only block of time later in the evening when everyone else in the house is going to bed.  i can plug in the earplugs and hammer away.  i also like the ability to see feedback on my playing. 


i've come to the realization that i may never be able to play on my own, so i try to enjoy every minute i get to play at all.  kinda like life in general, you can go through fighting it or enjoying it, all in how you look at it.  i do know after being on this site for a while there is a ton of talent out there.  makes me wish i was better, but also pushes me to try harder.
