I'm in the process of installing PTW and updating it with the 1.04 patch but I get an error message "Old file not found, no update done" or something to that effect... I had no trouble with updating BGW and NIR to 32 bit but without the patch I can't install the 32 bit PTW...
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sir, there is a file on your original PTW disk that has to be dragged over to your game directory. I can't remember its name but it something along the lines of a manual or readme file. If you compare files on your disk to the ones on your hard drive, you may find it that way. Rest assured that you do have the file, you just have to find it.

Man, for a minute I thought that Talonsoft had released a new patch for PTW! [;)]

Manually copy the readme.txt file from the CD to the main directory. Then install the patch.

Notes and Possible Error Messages when updating:

If the patch fails to locate the proper readme file (Old file not found, however a file of the same name...), simply copy the readme file directly from the CD to the game folder on your hard drive and then execute the update.

Old file not found - This error message occurs when you do not have the update actually inside the game folder. Make sure that you do not have a shortcut created and the update is located in the proper folder.

Old file not found, however a file of the same name was found, no updating done since file contents do not match. - This will occur if any of the files the update is trying to load, have been changed from the files on the original game CD or prior updates, or you have the file in the wrong game folder, perhaps another Battleground game, and the contents are different. I suggest at this point, uninstalling your game, reinstalling it and then applying the update to the fresh install.
