    Default Corrupt installation, Patch_1.pak missing

    I have rome total war gold, i use windows xp and everything is up to date. Before I never had a problem installing EB but now everytime i do it goes straight to normal rome total war instead of EB. I did validation check and it came up with

    Missing file: .\data\packs\patch_1.pak
    Changed file: .\data\credits.txt (expected checksum 632aad51f3a61c5da34140e4fa28800b, got b0a7954002857cc32e253a5e08b5c194)

    Added file: .\ebvalidationresults.txt
    Added file: .\gamespy arcade.url
    Added file: .\icon.ico

    I am unsure what to do, ive even reinstalled windows to see if that would work. Ive patched it to 1.2 and still the same thing appears that im missing patch_1.pak

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Was there an error at the installation progress?
    If not, try this:
    Modify the shortcut target. Move the end quote from the end of the line to directly after RomeTW.exe and it should work (goes for both the new shortcuts in 1.2). For instance, instead of "C:\My games\RomeEB\RomeTW.exe -mod:eb -show_err -ne" it should be "C:\My games\RomeEB\RomeTW.exe" -mod:eb -show_err -ne.
