Bringing a topic back from the dead, but I cannot find information anywhere else.
I am trying to install Crysis patch 1.2 (the game plays just fine without it, but I want to play it with the 3rd person view mod, which states it requires patch 1.2.
Windows XP v2002 SP3 - AMD Athlon 64x2 3GHz - 2GB RAM - ATI HD 4850
I have installed Crysis with no issues whatsoever. Everything but the Comrade application installed from the Crysis DVD (chose not to install Comrade).
I have installed patch 1.1 with no issues whatsoever.
I play Crysis (single player, I don't do MP) with no issues whatsoever.
I have downloaded the 1.2 patch from 5 different sources: they all were the same size, checksum'd the same, and I received the exact same error.
I use Windows exclusively to play games (my everyday OS is Solaris) so this Windows computer doesn't have anything running other than the required Windows processes plus SoundMAX and the Catalyst Control center
I double click on Crysis_patch_1_2.exe (I have admin rights, and have tried Run As as well, same result).
I get the Do you want to run this file? warning, which says the name of the executable is Crysis_Patch_1_2.exe, published by Crytek GmBH, etc. I click run.
Within a second or 2, I get the " <executable> has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please tell Microsoft about the problem" pop -up and nothing else (other than the Windows core dump).
So, has anyone seen this before? I have seen a number of issues described in many sites, but not this one.
