Hello and welcome to the forum @Julopot,


I split your post and moved it to the correct forum section. Smile  That said, are you sure your download of the manual patch did not get interrupted ? Because even if it interrupts or pauses just for a little while, it is already enough for the patch not to work. Try ensuring that your internet connection is stable, and re-download the patch.

You could even try downloading the patch with a different internet browser, too.

Good luck for the moment and feel free to keep us posted !

So did you successfully download that manual patch then ? If so, it's good to hear. Very Happy  Feel free to post back in this topic if you need more support; I will leave the thread open for now.
