Hello,

It's better to download everything separately. What you have now is a modified installer and, as you have found out, a modified installer complicates things if you want to update your game or add expansions.
The best advice I can give you is to download the base game and the expansion in the deluxe edition separately, I can guarantee you it will work.
We have everything here.

Hello,

I'm afraid not. The deluxe edition simply works differently.

Hello,

Unfortunately those modified installers mess with the Registry too much.
Is there anything else we can currently help you with?
