We can't tell anything from the information in your e-mail sorry! Saying "it
didn't work" and "it threw some errors" doesn't really help us to diagnose your
problem. You need to provide as much information as you can about the problem:
tell us what didn't work, how it didn't work, what you were expecting to happen,
what actually happened, what the errors were, when the errors occurred, ...

It is a waste of our time to have to respond to questions by saying "please send
more information". Please, if you want us to help you, you need to help us by
supplying as much information as possible.
