Yes, I installed all the patches correctly as administrator.
I copied the BG2 folder out of my Program Files folder too.
But there's no change still, the problem is still there.
Does copying the folder to another location work? Or will only a fresh install work?
I manually updated the baldur.ini file to reflect the new CD1 to 5 locations too.
Never simply copy installed programs from one location to another. It will completely confuse Windows, and any utilities that depend on querying the registry for the install path. You must uninstall and re-install.
