When I try to install the 2.8.3.1 patch, the utility starts, then displays the error "Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match". I uninstalled 2.8.3 and reinstalled it, but I still had the same problem.

Any ideas?

You need to flush your Registry of AA game data.

Please follow these instructions VERY carefully - making a mistake during this process could seriously damage your PC, however if you follow correctly your AA game will install successfully when you next try it ;)

Removing AA Reg-Files

1. Open notepad 2. Copy the following into the notepad file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\US Army]3. Save the file as: RemoveAA.reg - Do NOT miss out the .reg! 4. Double click the file you just created (or open/run it) 5. Click 'Merge to registry' 6. Now install AA 2.8.3, then 2.8.3.1!

Enjoy the game ;)

Ive reinstalled and tryed all the different ways of doing it and just ended up with the old problem could you please help me???

Follow my instructions again, and try installing 2.8.3 Full Version. Then simply install the 2.8.3.1 patch by opening the exe file.

This has worked for many people, it should of course work for you ;) Just ensure you follow my instructions PERFECTLY or you will have serious problems, not just with the game.
