Patience please, this is a help forum not a paid call centre.

Firstly I have BF2 installed on E: and the patch worked fine, have you changed drives around since installing BF2? Check your registry settings for BF2 and make sure they point to the correct location, I have attached a picture of the location to look in, note how mine points to the installed location, make sure yours is pointing to the correct place, if not adjust it.

Another thing, the patch requires a LARGE amount of free space in your default temp directory (usually c:/windows/temp), so if you c: drive is nearly full that will cause problems (700Mb free is required).

If you need to add one, go to run and type "regedit" open up HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then software, electronic arts, ea games, battlefield 2, and then click Edit, New String. Call it InstallDir, and set it's "Value Data" to F:\Program Files\EA Games\Battlefield 2. Hope that helps

You see, that's why it couldn't find the game, it didn't know where to look.
