EDIT 1: Solved! basically i had to launch both games before installing the mod (i probably jumped over this passage somewhere)

Hey, I'm having the same problem, but OP's solution doesn't make any sense to me. What do they mean "launch both games before installing the mod"? There's only one game. Also, why would it need to be running for the mod to be installed? Any guidance appreciated.

XCom EW is an expansion of the base XCom game. (It actually installs into a sub-folder of the original game folder tree. LW for EW needs to be pointed to that sub-folder.) You need to launch the base game first TWICE up to the Main in-game Menu, then launch the EW expansion TWICE as well. Only then should you install any mod (not just LW). This is because the game installs additional files the first time you launch it, and needs the second launch to complete the installation/configuration.

I can't run the Long War installer, and I read the mod guide. Whatever the reason, it can't find the XComEW.exe file?
Here's my error log:
"The source file (long steam string)Xcom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XEW\win32\XcomEW.exe" does not exist.
Are you sure you're installing to the game folder? If so, reinstall/repair the game."
Ed: Didn't see I had to run both versions twice. It works now!
