I just went out and bought Joint Operations Typhoon rising today. It was new, unopened and was a full English copy of the game. The problem is, that when I click the update tab in-game, it finds the update, but displays these two messages: -------------------------------------------------------------------------- NovaLogic Update Wizard v1.5.00a FTP_ERR: Server response 550 /pub/updates/JOTR/uk: The system cannot find the file specified. (72 bytes) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- It then displays a further message saying: -------------------------------------------------------------------------- NovaLogic Update Wizard v1.5.00a An error occured during the update process. Please correct the problem and re-run Update.exe. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- How the hell am I supposed to know how to correct the problem? I tried it on my dads PC too, but it said the exact same message - same directories, everything. Whatsmore, his is a totally different make to mine! I've downloaded the update several times from many a source, but it just happens all over again. All my other games update when prompted. But remember, this game was new, and from what the message is implying, there is apparently a missing file. Does anyone know of this problem, or any suggestions on how to fix it? I've spent a total of 12 hours, trying to get a game I knew I'd love to work, but I can't suss all thse directories and things. Thank you for your help.:D

I'm sry i'm not that well educated in English... does the above means you downloaded it from more sources then only the crappy nova update.exe? If you did and the error still occures i will install JO tomorrow (formatted my C:\) and see if i can find some in log files or some. Else you can always rely on FF's joint ops site (http://jointoperations.filefront.com/files/Joint_Operations/Official_Releases/Patches;4195) and dl the one you need (i'm sry i donno which one it is but it will probably the last full patch) And install it, if the error still occures, leave me a pm or post here and i'll look if i can find some to fix it

Thanks, I appreciate your help, but don't bother. I found out all that was wrong was that I was installing the update in the wrong directory - lol! I must say, the game is really good and was worth the fiver I paid for it!
