Manual patch problem.. Need Help..

Post by eXaphor on Tue 26 Nov 2013, 14:21

Hello, I'm new to this forum and have some problem with the manual patch posted on the stickied thread.

After finished downloading the patch, I tried to run it and instead of getting the installation windows, I run into an error like this:

'setupnew/setup.cpp(140)
PAPP
PVENDOR
PGUID
$
@Windows Vista Service Pack 2(6002)
IE Version:8.0.7600.16385'

I have tried to change compatibility settings, with admin permission but still no luck.. Sad

and I'm on windows 7 x64,right now only the base game installed, which waiting to be updated along with those expansions..

Thanks, hopefully someone can help me walk through on this. Smile

Please download with Google Chrome, and use WinRAR to extract.

The manual patch is already in .exe format(downloaded from the first link), so I doubt extracting is the issue? Also, I tried to install it on my other computer and it seems to run without the said problem..?

Well this usually means the file is corrupted, which is why I suggested this...
Have you tried the mirror link?
