The original file "SH_NClient.dll" after update-patch 1.2.0.0 has this MD5Sum: 7c4dd148ed60b9b6224c4b6a14b3b1a5

I have a version of this "SH_NClient.dll" here and wish to ask you:
Is this the patched version?

The file I have here has this MD5Sum:
0edca3eb52a7ab37cfa10c7c3b33ca41

Is this the latest?

Default 60 m/s wind patch question

I just enabled this patch. Haven't tried it yet, and now I read that you have to enable a file by hand? Is this true? If so what file, and how? Or did I read that wrong in TDW's patch list?

This patch, which short name is known as TDW Generic Patcher, is a MUST-HAVE for whatever version of SH5 you play. It will correct approx. 60 game-breaking bugs.
This patch is included in TWoS, with its newest version you don't have to bother anymore, it will be installed automatically.
And in my humble opinion, unless you are an *expert* in SH5, you should not play anything else than TWoS. For myself, I did play the vanilla game including this patch, plus other TheDarkWraith's mod series for SH5, but the playing result of such a corrected vanilla game is still *far inferior* to TWoS, especially for the in-sub visuals, unrealistic maps, stupid needed tonnage performances in your missions, reduced Automation features etc, etc. Just forget it.

That said, to answer your question: the exact HowTo for installing this patch is included in the TWoS thread, but I don't know if it's still there, because Vecko has automated the process. However read it carefully if you install by hand, and read an entire novel if you have the Steam version of the game
If you happen to have the Steam version of SH5, then *by all means* make a fresh install of SH5, update it to 1.2 and install the newest TWoS, you save a lot of time. In this case I also advice you to start a fresh career, do not use your old saves.
