Problems with XWE

A Forum Thread for Doom

I've been trying to add custom music to my DooM .wad with XWE, but the moment I try launching it I get the error 'Failed to create key .wads' then 'List index out of bounds (0)'. After trying to open my .wad I get 'List index out of bounds (3)' and then it gets stuck with the little loading symbol forever. I'm quite unfamiliar with making and editing .wads, so I really have no idea how to fix this issue. I've seen other people having the same problem, but no solution. Please help!

    While I'm not into modding Doom at all, I do mod a mod of Doom from time to time. (Specifically Sonic Robo Blast 2.)

    In the past, I used to use XWE, but... it's really buggy and crashy, from my knowledge. (It often said "close and re-open XWE to avoid corruption of data" or such.) Now I use something called "Slade". Maybe give that a try?

    I had similar errors, but they would disappear after starting it with administrator rights

    P.S. sorry for necropost!
