Theres the new patch out and it wont let me install it, I keep getting an error that F.E.A.R. isn't installed yet I got the notice about the patch and the patch itself through the game...

Anyone ever get this issue?

Does the patch get rid of the cd check?

Maybe my bad here, didn't realize 1.04 was out.

Magus - if your referring to 1.03, then my post is o.k.

nippyjun - 1.03 doesn't get rid of it, don't know about 04.

The 1.04 wont install. Keeps giving me an error stating that F.E.A.R. isn't installed even though it is.

Do you have Fear installed onto Drive C: ?

According to VU peeps, that's what causes that problem ...or one reason for it anyway.

Ok. Issue fixed. For some reason windows considered the game "not installed", I couldn't even use the uninstaller in the directory or Add/Remove Programs. Had to force an install through the setup.exe on the disc and then patch....

I hate it when that happens, nasty registry screw up.

Not sure what causes those. hmmmm

Yeah. Seems that its happened to alot of other applications I had installed, both the HOMM and Ghost Recon Demo's wouldn't uninstall... had to manually remove them and the registry entries.
