    I'm trying to install the latest patch 1.74 but it keeps telling me that the civ 4 game is not installed.

    I tried 1.31 and 1.61 but they say the same thing.

    complete is already patched to 1.74, 2.13 and 3.13 - the only patch that should work and is necessary is 3.17

    I have just set up an account / loggin for multiplayer games, when I login:

    (1) I get a message telling me I do not have the latest patch 174

    (2) that it will now download from the server

    (3) the download completes fine, then I am told that the program needs to exit to complete the installation.

    (4)I select 'ok' and it exits back to the desktop then does nothing.

    When I try and login to the sever again it reverts back to step (1) and repeats. I desperately want to pley against my mates online but this f*ing game won't let me, when I login and the patch is downloading I can even see my mates user names on the list of active players in the background! Arrrrh

    PLEASE, PLEASE HELP

    'civ4 complete' = CDROM version?

    I downloaded the d2d civ4 patch for the d2d civ4 game.

    as far as I know d2s sells both the standalone games as well as a combined product. since you posted in a thread for the combined civ4+warlords+bts (i.e. Civ4 Complete) I wanted to know what you are using...

    as for your error message: try contacting d2d - its their installer and it is much different from the one for the cd version.
    The error code itself: does it specify which dll it cannot find?
