Hello there! Very Happy

If your game is updated to 1.67, there's no need to apply the manual patch again. And usually re-applying the Ultimate Fix isn't necessary either. You just need to install the EP and you're good to go! 

But, if you get any problems, you should apply the Ultimate Fix again to be sure. But it's not always required. It's possible for the game to work without applying it again. 

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Smile

Hello there,


I have a different opinion on that: it is known that re-applying the manual patch after installing an expansion can help prevent some installation glitches. So it wouldn't hurt to re-apply the patch.

What I would do is this: just install ALL available expansions/stuffpacks (if your computer can handle them), then at the end re-apply the manual patch and then the Ultimate fix too. And you don't have to do it again. Good luck ! Smile
