The only thing I can really tell is that... make sure the mod is like this:

mods/(modname)/data (and in here contains the xml/art/text/custommaps and stuff)

then create a new text file (like notepad) and type this: swfoc MODPATH=Mods\(MODNAME)

and then save it as (MODNAME).batch

this is how i run my private mod...

NOTES: (MODNAME) means like, well, the mod name, without parathesis

I believe this first became a problem with Windows in XP SP 2. Just save your file to the desktop, then copy it into where your game is. Now on to why Windows does this and how to avoid it. It boils down to Windows not automatically allowing programs to save to areas it considers likely to contain important files. (Such as 'Program Files') Its a security thing. This normally is dealt with by checking the box 'Run as Administrator' under the compatability tab of a program. BUT............ Because Notepad is a part of Windows, you can't select this option. This is why most modders use third-party programs (Notepad++ like myself, but some people use XML Pad) because these can be 'Run as Administrator.' I prefer Notepad++, because of its ease of use, and its syntax highlighting which makes it easier to spot errors in masses of code. (Although I haven't been able to open .bat files with it) Hope this helped.

I did what you said by putting the note pad document on my desktop then into my mod data file but it still doesn't open, it also makes my computer run slower.

Did you change the extension of the file from .txt to .bat? If it still dosent work, try getting the EAW/FOC mod launcher (Google 'Petrolauncher')

I can only save it as a text file, It doesn't give me the optian to change it to a .bat file

When you save, set the file type as 'All files'. Then, for the title, type MODNAME.bat
