The installer for this game is a bit quirky, sorry for that. It requires the downloaded files to still be present, otherwise it won't find the "Loopy Landscapes" pack.

Please uninstall the game, then redownload and re-install, and when the downloader asks you what to do with the temporary files at the end of the installation process, tell it to keep them.

You may also want to move the downloader to a safe place before starting the download, where you can keep the files. Don't start it in a "temp" or "Download" directory that might be deleted automatically by your browser or by a system process. Also, you may want to steer clear of the "Program Files" directories for download and installation, many older games have trouble with these directories on newer (post-XP) versions of Windows.

You need to download it with antivirus and firewall off so you get a good copy of the file. Once installed you can turn them back on.
