Error When Attempting to Patch

Postby Mystery » Fri Jan 21, 2005 3:48 am

I recently purchase and now patched Uplink and receiving a Fatal Error pop up. Analysing the log resulted in this error.

After reading the code, I am under the assumption that I have attempted to patch from an incompatible version to the 1.31 patch. Am I correct in my assumption and if so where can I locate a previous patch.

I do not have any folders name Development associated with Uplink.

The file path given is the place on IV's computer where the Uplink source code is (was). So it make sense that you don't have such a folder on your system.

Try uninstalling Uplink totally (ie uninstall then delete any folders that remain) and then reinstall and patch. :)
