I'm following the instructions and it says "The setup has detected that no version of Silent Hunter 4 wolves of the pacific installed. This update requires that a previous version of the application be installed. What am I doing wrong.

it is because the patch needs a clean install, if you apply patch to a game with saves and mods then it will more than likely crash.

Why the heck do I have to uninstall the game?! Anyway it sounds like a good patch, but I don't know if I want to uninstall a game that takes FOREVER to install again; just for a patch?!

Here are the answers to all your questions:

1. You need to uninstall the game because any mods you have applied and any savegames leave traces behind, no matter how hard you work to uninstall them or what the JSGME User Guide says. Those remnants will corrupt the 1.5 Patch and it either won't work at all or will develop funny problems down the line. A patch always has to be installed on a fresh game.

2. Yes, this is the patch that also installs U-Boat Missions.

Anyone know how to install this update from a "Steam downloaded" game. I have reinstalled and redownloaded this update several times--never works-gets message that says the game is NOT installed...

I noticed the patch says "1.4". If I'm running SH4WOPUBM v1.5, is this patch necessary, or do I already have it installed?

Ok. So I've downloaded the patch 1.4. This may be a stupid question... but I just wanna confirm. Do I also get the previous patches included with the 1.4 patch? Thanks to all those who helped Ubisoft make a game that should have been awesome from the start!

I've downloaded the patch but i'm running a steam version of SH4 and the installer says "This setup has detected that no version of Silent Hunter 4 Wolves of the Pacific is installed. This update requires that a previous version of the application be installed" but i'm playing with version 1.3. any ideas to get the installer to notice the application?

For those with steam its better just to buy the U-boat missions pack as it will automatically update to 1.5

Just made several attempts to download this patch. Microsoft Edge says the link points to: http://files.filefront.com then simply states that it cannot be reached. I'm hoping I can eventually get the patch.

I tried to purchase SH4 Gold with v1.5, but the links were bad.

Do these patches not work for Steam downloaded versions of the game? Keep getting the message no version of sh4 is installed

First, I am not using a Steam SH4 - I have a membership and bought SH4 and other games but SH4 was troublesome and seldom ran. So I went back to my DVD.

I am downloading V1.4 now - but is it a true patch that I need a base program to build on? I just installed SH4 yesterday and opened the menu but did not start the game. Do I still need to uninstall/install SH4? Will the patch work with my DVD version?

After installing SH4 does the V1.4 Patch load on top of it? Any instructions or are the instructions with the patch?

Thanks
