It took 3 hours for me to download the new patch (1.41). I go to double click on the .exe file but it never fires up. I open the task manager and open the processes tab. I see the BF2 patch but then it disappears after a few minutes. I really do not want to re-download the patch. This happened to me with the 1.3 patch but for some reason I don't remember how I got it to work. Any help would be appreciated.
It is possible that the download could have become corrupt at some point when downloading the patch. It has happened to me a few times, a good sign that this has happened is if the file does not actually have an image and just looks like a normal dos program box. But that is fairly unlikely unless your using a very slow and poor connection like a 56K.
