Thanks. This is strange.... I already did what you suggested. I got this message from the GOG Patcher: "Installed version already includes this package".
It seems it's there... somewhere. I swear I've looked everywhere and as silly as this seems, it's effectively invisible. I've contacted support.
I should add that I'm on Windows 8.1.
That seems strange, as GOG has made it clear that the Windows-patch is not included in the original install from GOG. I had no problems installing it on Windows 7. Have you tried installing the patch as administrator?
Yes, I tried installing it as an administrator, no joy. When I downloaded the game using the installer, I looked at the download links for the GOG downloader. In the list of links there was a windows patch, but it was technically *not* an actual link that could be clicked on so that it could be downloaded seperately. I've noticed this with a few games that use this new system of GOG's. I honestly preferred the old method.
There were just two actual 'clickable' links:
- the main intaller
Because the patch is listed underneath the main download, I would have assumed that it is included in the main download, although that is just an assumption; this new system of GOG's that involves more stages if you want to use the GOG Downloader - is not very clear with regards to what is actually being downloaded and, frankly a slight pain.
I also tried the other methods besides using GOG Downloader, but they are the same.
This is baffling beyond belief. I'm no PC pro, but I have no trouble tinkering about and getting things to work normally. Thanks for trying Random_Coffee. I will just leave it at that for now and see what Support says. If I get any further, I'll post the solution :)
Here's what my folder looks like...
