Can't install Sandstorm

Post by Spechtmeise » Fri May 18, 2018 10:31 am

I am confused. When I try to install Sandstorm I get the message that an update to 6.1.7 is required. However, when I start the game it says Version 6.1.7 (64 bit) on the splash screen. In fact, I distinctly remember that I upgraded OOB to the current version. What's going wrong?
Thanks,
Thomas

Do you have the stand alone version or the Steam version of the game?

I downloaded directly from the web site, so that would be the stand alone version of the game then, I suppose.

I suggest you to uninstall the game and then reinstall it using the new installer.

You can download it from the link below:
http://ftp.us.matrixgames.com/pub/Order ... v6.1.7.zip
Once you have finished downloading the file, please unzip the downloaded file "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.zip".
After unzipping, you should have two extracted files:
"OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.exe"
"OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.2"

Run the one named "OoBWWII-MultiSetupRelease-v6.1.7.exe".

When asked to insert the serial number, please click in the drop down menu "Select a New Product to Install... " and select "Order of Battle: Sandstorm".
Type your "Order of Battle: Sandstorm" serial number.

Click in the button "Check Serial".
You should see then the name"Order of Battle: Sandstorm" being added  to the list of games displayed in the box named "Setup as detected a valid serial number for:".
Do the same for all your other expansions.
