GCFScape v1.8.6 - GCFScape and all the files you need to run it (except the .NET Framework).
.NET Framework - GCFScape is written in C++ .NET (using Visual C++ 2010 SP1) and as such requires the .NET Framework 4.0 (or later) and the Visual C++ 2010 SP1 runtime to run.
If you don't already have the .Net Framework installed, or are unsure what to do, download the .Net Framework 4.*:
If you already have the .Net Framework installed, and just want to update your C++ runtimes, download the appropriate Visual C++ runtime:

I'm still getting the error with GCFScape 1.65 - on Windows XP with latest updates. The older GCFScape version 1.3x works fine.
What to do about it?

Try again? There is a bug in VS 2005 where the wrong assembly version is added to the embedded manifest file; it needs to be deleted, but I forgot to do so.

I get the following error when I start GCFScape:
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.
I am running Vista.
Steam is not running.

I used to have GCF Scape, and it worked amazingly, but my HD got wiped clean. Now when I try to start it I ge this message: "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem." I have installed the .NET Framework V2.0, and I've reinstalled GCF Scape twice, but nothing's working. Halp!
EDIT: I'm also logged out of Steam.

Finally got the Defragger with GCFScape to work, but when i run it it doesn't seem like it does much. It only does its process for under half a second. This normal?
Edit: Never mind, i think its running perfectly. I had all the EP1 files defraging, and they seem to defrag real fast, where as the new 07' shizzle takes a few seconds.
Edit: Another thing, when this "package writable Privilege" is on, can i write to GCFs? i'd REALLY like to replace the friend's message sound in "winui.gcf"
Im about to test my games, just got finished defraging all of them.

I unpacked and empty gcf files from the full file gcf. Can I add to it unpacked files and a full version of a file?

I love this tool. I've been using it for ages to keep my Source games running their best on my less-than-optimal system.
I have hit a snag, however, in that one of the new TF2 files is larger than 2Gb. The file size shown by GCFScape is a large, negative number and it seems unable to defragment the file. I'm running Windows XP if that makes a difference. I think I recall this setback being documented somewhere but I want to make sure you're aware of it.
Is there anything I can do on my end to fix or work around the problem? Is there anything you can do on your end to fix the problem? Is there any way I can help further? I can't promise to check for replies as often as I should but I am more than happy to help any way I can.
Thanks again for this wonderful tool!

You don't need to edit the .gcf files, see the FAQ
