Hi kevster, don't worry about daft questions mate, there's often no such thing.

It really doesn't matter where you save it to, I just saved it to Desktop and let it download. Then when it's finished, double-click it, and the patch should install itself. Providing you haven't made any game modifications.

Good luck and post back if you need any further help. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

sounds like the patch hasn't downloaded properly or something, or it's been stopped from downloading.

If you're using Internet Explorer, I'd just click on the patch download (here (http://patches.ubi.com/silent_hunter_3/silent_hunter_3_dvd_1.4b_emea.exe) it is for you), and choose Save, and save it to the desktop.

Then let it download, the full file is about 20MB in size. How big is the one you have?

Try again and see what happens.
