If the patch tells you that it cannot install because you don't have the correct version, you should reinstall the game from your original install package. Once that's done, just run the patch exe to install it.

Due to the large size of the patch, we have removed the manual from the patch. You need to download it separately if you want the latest version. The link is listed above under "Updated Manual".
