Damn. I saw the title and moved it. Then I saw the problem. So, its not a COD2 problem after all?

Sounds like you need to uninstall completely, remembering to delete the COD folder that gets left behind.

Reinstall again. Then update straight to 1.5 from your base version (whatever that is - 1.0 or 1.3).

Just double checking, which version of CoD are you trying to update? as it is not totally clear.

Only the first CoD can be updated to 1.5. The latest update for CoD2 is the 1.3 patch, there are no others.
