# 1 patch update problem
08-01-2013, 05:16 PM
been trying to download the latest patches, but i keep getting:

"error 36: A file was locked that could not be open for writing."

i have absolutely no idea what the problem is, so if any of you can figure this out for me, it would be greatly appreciated

Try right clicking on the launcher icon, and select 'Run as administrator'

Or look for a .deleteme file and delete that.

I had the same issue today, i simply right clicked and ran as Administrator and good to go. Also if you have the game with ARC it would seem at times you need it launched in order to update but once that is going you can close our ARC all together.
