I downloaded the patch (DivEnglish_Hotfix2) to my E drive and when I ran it I got a message "No installation found, yadda yadda yadda)
I moved the entire Divine Divinty folder to my C drive and reran the patch and got the same message.
What must happed for the patch to recognize the install of ?


P.S. I have been running on the CD version (1.029?) but my game crashed in the middle of a save and now the save won't load.

The patch is probably looking for the game location in the registry. See having problems installing.

Thanks, Raze.

Well, Raze,
It didn't seem to apply in my case. Perhaps because I'm using XP Home?
Anyway, I looked in
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CDV Software Entertainment AG\Divine Divinity]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CDV Software Entertainment AG\Divine Divinity\English]
"target folder"="C:\\Programme\\Divine Divinity"
"group folder"="C:\\WINDOWS\\Startmenü\\Programme\\Divine Divinity"
"language"="English"
"version"="1.0"

I didn't have a CDV Software or Divine Divinity directory.
I'm going to just reinstall the program on my C drive.
Thanks for you help!

This registry file works under XP home; someone tried it and posted in the old forum. Just open the reg file in a text editor and change the default path to the where you installed Divinity.

If you installed it to; "E:\Games\Divine Divinity"

you would change the

"target folder"="C:\\Programme\\Divine Divinity"

line so it read

"target folder"="E:\\Games\\Divine Divinity"
