Hello,
Your base game is compatible and your version of the WA expansion shouldn't give you any problems either.
But you may have copied the crack to the wrong location. Watch this video to avoid confusion and make sure your base game is version 1.26.

Hello,
Ok no problem, just update manually to 1.26. You'll have to redo the entire fix though, except when the guide tells you to open the launcher to update, install the patch you downloaded instead.
