Hello there.

I'd like to inform you about a bug in the patch's installer. The installer crashes both on Wine (version 1.6.2-6) and real Windows 7 SP1 (on a virtual machine). For the Windows case: it happens with the composition (Desktop -> Personalize -> Basic compositions) set to "Classical Windows", and it does not, when the composition is set to "Basic Windows 7" (or whatever the name's in English). The game itself (on Wine) is playable if no patch is applied, so I'd suggest fixing the installer, so that even Linux/non-fancy-Windows'-look people could use it - I guess a command line switch allowing to install to the auto-detected path without displaying any windows (except a messagebox "Succeeded!/Error!") would be enough.

Here's the crash log from the W7 VM:

@sar2, could you try to run the patch on one thread/processor?

Could you try the attached file? Place it in the same directory as the patch and run setup.exe using the following parameters:

"OWPatch_1.12.9.exe" -silent

So the full path would be: setup.exe "OWPatch_1.12.9.exe" -silent

Note: DO NOT close setup.exe while it is working. If you do you will end up with a corrupt data1.owp (Or whatever OWP file its modifying at the time).

@Gothuk: Sorry, I haven't tried your solution.

@Stucuk: Your solution just works perfectly fine. I ran the installer they way you wrote and the game got updated to v1.12.09 (the version is displayed on the launcher screen). I only tested the game on Wine, since I can't acces real Windows ATM on my virtual machine because of some problems with Dreamspark. The game itself, at least with language set to Polish or English, still displays it's version in the right lower corner as '1.12.08'.

Note: I only managed to start the Russian campaing, as the American one results in another crash (as soon as the introductory video starts, the screen get's black and only sound can be heard), but this COULD be a Wine, not the game's bug. Nevertheless, no such problem existed with vanilla GoG installation (version 1.10 if I recall correctly). Also, constantly hitting Escape, so that the video can't even start, allows me to successfully start the first mission in the Am campaign.

Not sure if it's worth your time, since the main issue seems to be resolved with your workaround, but here's the error log anyway:

If it can't read its version (Maybe due to wine not supporting it) it will display a static string which is built into the exe. Which does sais 1.12.08 because i forgot to update it.
