Error trying to update Field of Glory II

Post by edpq21 » Thu Aug 22, 2019 7:14 pm

when open the game I see a message informing that there is a newer version of the game, so I click over "check for updates" and starts the updater, but this always responds with the error shows in the attached image. I need help please

installing the game as admin and running the game as admin sets up the correct file permissions to run and update, not doing it doesn't set the firewall exceptions, and is the main reasons the game won't and can't update as it doesn't have the right permissions to run, install or update

You can also update the game manually.
ownload games and patches from the Member's Area provided they are registered to the account. Please see the forum post below which explains how to do this:

I run the game as Administrator and have the same problem as the OP.
