Critical error message's are not the end of the world my friend. what they mean is that the easymod can not find that part in the tpl ot php file . it could have changed or been edit, also some mods have not been written with easymod in mind. the best way to correct it is to find the which line the error is on in your install text file ( easymod will tell the line number ) then open the file concerned in your text editor, ie dreamweaver or notepad2 look for the lines in the find command if they are the same copy and paste the exact lines back in to install text making sure you paste it over the old lines.
also easymod way though a warning message at you these are usually language warning ( best way to stop this is to delete all the language files in your language folder in the forum that you don't use) but some are template warning this is were easymod has not installed a part of text or code in one or more of your skins, keep a eye out for these as you will have to do them manually.

Or if you don't understand a word of the goberly goke i just said, Try doing it manually. beleave me once you've done it one or two hundred times you will be able to do it in your sleep.

Just one thing in the install file there will be a list of the file that will be edit with the mod, MAKE BACK UPs OF THESE FILES BEFORE STARTING, USING EASYMOD OR MANUALLY INSTALL. IF YOU MESS UP YOU WILL BE GLADE YOU DID.
