It installed fine in Vista64 as well, and I even installed the map pack (in Vista) before the patch as well. However, the patch install in Vista took quite a while compared how fast it installed in XP. Yes my DVD was in the drive during both patch installations but I never heard it spin up.

Had a bizarre issue too. Installed it in XP pro and when it finished it asked me to click on finish to complete install.

I clicked on it at least 3 times and it took the best part of 10 mins to finally take me to the changes page. Not had this issue before.

BTW it has not messed with the cfg files. Just checked and they look the same.

I hope it has improved SLI compatibility as this games truly sucks with SLI. I have to play at 1280x1050 to get really playable framerates. A joke no?

I'll give it a whirl in next 48 hours and post back.

How long does it take to install this patch? It's been sitting at 'copying new files' for 5 minutes without any change.

Still the same thing after the restarts. The cursor is just not in the right place and I can't choose anything. Only way I could is at 800x600 non-fullscreen. Anyone else having this problem?

Tested this and when the videos (intros movies) are not in the correct place or deleted, the patch will not install and gives you the OP's error.
