You re-downloaded and re-installed the game and you're still getting the same error?
Tell me, what does your "Version.ini" file say in it, open it in a text editor.

Here it is.
[Version]
CheckVersion=3
CurrentVersion=122
StartUpdate=EXTRACT_START

BTW, I am using XP on my desktop which is the computer that is not working. And i did do a complete uninstall and tried to reload the game. My laptop is working fine I am using Windows 7 and using AVG Antivirus 2011 on it also.

Here's what I'm guessing happened. At some point you closed your updater mid-update, and it didn't finish extracting a patch.
The line "StartUpdate=EXTRACT_START" should read "StartUpdate=UPDATE_END". Try changing it to that and running the updater again.

Thanks Vafx...It didnt do the trick but it got me on the right path. It started me off at patch version 122. I had to go thru 122- 140 patch updates and it finally came up. Been busy with work and real life so didn't get a chance to do the process until today. Mucho Gracias Very Happy

By the way, I got it to work. Basically I went into that version file and tried to rig it to skip the one it was on (199). I just changed it to 200 and it worked fine. I guess 199 wasn't needed or was overwritten because it's not causing any problems.
