i have approx 7 or 8 installations of SH4 and SH3 and i have never received a JSGME error of any kind.

i suspect that the SH4 folder in which JSGME resides has some kind of R/W protection.
there are only two things in the world: submarines and targets.

If you are doing another 'new' copy of SH4 for a different mod, and copied the MODS folder and JSGME over with the SH4 files, you will end up with a set of ini, backup and log files that do not match what is in the folders. If you have not installed any mods to the game yet, you can delete the "SH4GameFolder \JSGME.ini" file, the "SH4Game \MODS \JSGME.ini" file. There are two hidden folders in the MODS folder, "!BACKUP" and "!INSTLOGS" that could also be deleted, if this is a new copy of the game you are doing. The next time you run JSGME, it should recreate the ini files and hidden folders. If however, you already have mods activated, this would not work too well and should be avoided. You would be better served by a "fresh" install of SH4, and then adding mods.
