    well, when I try to run it XP says "there is a known issue with this program" , the auto update takes me to a really SLOW webpage taht has several patches for it. first I have to update the update software and then ,I download the latest patch. after completed it says the installation was completed . then game just freezes. can't I just download the latest patch (french version) without updating the auto updater software? thanks for replies

    goto fileplanet or something like that and download the patch from there.

    That will work best.
