Patching Problem "Could Not Determine Installation Language"

9 posts in this topic

I just got a new fresh version of GRAW 2, but when I play Multiplayer it told me to patch. So I downloaded it and patched, but it had an error message saying: "COuld Not Determine Installation Language, Please Reinstall". Now I Try To Play Multiplayer But It Says The Version Is Different. The Patch was 1.00-1.05. I haven't tried the separate 1.00-1.01 etc, Patches Yet. I tried reinstalling too but nothing changed. Single player works flawlessly.

EDIT:

right i do believe after a rejig of my memory, this game is sounding legit, first the patch wouldn't recognize the game all together.

if the game isn't installed into C://program files>Ubisoft>Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

then you might want to reinstall into that directory above.

If you are having trouble patching and it says:

"patch cannot determine the language of the game, please reinstall"

or

"GRAW 2 is not installed on your machine."

here is what you have to do.

If the Game is not installed into C://Program files/Ubisoft/Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

and is instead D://Ubisoft/Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

then straight away there is your issue.

The patch is set to look for the first directory i typed thus it can read the Registry Values and determine the localization of the game. thats how the language is recognized. a simple reinstall to the first directory should be sufficient for the Patch to work, if it isn't, then registry entries have not been added, i know what to put where but that would be feeding illegal players on how to get their game to work and because Ubi were such idiots, they made patch 1.05 a [Thing that should not be spoken of here IAW Forum Rule 3.7] required patch.

If the patch says the second message, again, the registry entries haven't been added and the patch can't find the game in which case a legal player with the disk can reinstall.

and again i wont help illegal players with registry entries. and they will most likely be edited out by Administrators anyway.

anyway, enough said.

Zeealex out.

Try to install the game again, do NOT change the installation folder. Then you can install the patch. It already happened to me

well if it is a legitimate copy then the disk is probably bust, in which case a new one is in order.

i'll need un momento to figure a few things out with my system before i go any further

I also tried saving the patcher to the enitial installation folder, it says not a valid win32 app or something like that. And If I Use "Run" instead of "Save" it has the language error.

Regarding my Act II Not Unlocked Question, it was fixed thank you. I have act II now!

I am running Windows 7-64bit and the path is: C://Program files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2

Is there a way to direct the patch to the correct folder?
