error message pops up when Python is changed to a BAK file.
What error message? The same (exact) one as before (without the rename to .bak)? Also, could you clarify what OS this happens on? (Both?)
also, I ran a search for "python" on all of my HDDs. Apparently, Civ IV uses Python as well. Any possibility of issues with that?
I don't think so. If Civ IV having a few Python files within its directory was an issue, I assume it would have affected FreeOrion v0.3.16 as well. I'm assuming there's some issue with the Python27.dll I provided with v0.3.17 that prevents it from loading or working on either 64-bit Vista or 32-bit XP...

Problem 1: OpenAL32.dll not found. I've looked in the FO folder, and the two openAL folders are there.
You mean openAL DLL files are there, but there is a popup error about them being not found, after installing the v0.3.17 link from this thread?
That's correct. Upon downloading and running the OpenAL installer from Creative to place the two OAL files in System32, the problem was fixed
Could you clarify which operating system(s) this problem happened on? Just 32-bit XP, or also 64-bit Vista? Did you try copying the OpenAL DLL files from the v0.3.16 install? If not, could you delete the OAL files in System32 and try that method instead? If there was no OAL issue on 64-bit Vista after installing FreeOrion v0.3.17, could you try copying the v0.3.16 OAL DLLs over the ones that came with v0.3.17 and see if it still works?
See attached logs.
What situation are those logs for? Which OS, with what done after installing FreeOrion? It looks like things are working fine for a turn, and then the human player disconnected.
The test with Python is on Vista 64. The error message was the same as before, except that it indicated that "Python27.dll" could not be found, which made sense.
As for OpenAL, that's also for Vista 64. I will not be able to check the issue with AI on XP until tomorrow.
Do you think that there will be any issues with installing two copies of FO, or can I grab the files from pd's archive?
