Hello,

Possibly, is it a modified installer that installs more than one title at once?
If it is, the Diesel installer and the patch don't recognize your base game.

Hello,

You should uninstall yes, after that, your next move depends on whether or not you can install the base game separately. I'd try it though, you'll know if the patch won't install after you installed the base game.
Don't forget to restart your pc after uninstalling.

Hello,

That's odd... where exactly did you download it from?
