While trying to install the MW4BK patch I got this message:
Error code description can be found in the file "PR1 readmex.rtf
Unable to complete patch.
I looked it up and found this:
0036: Old file not found. However, a file of the same name was found. No update done since file contents do not match. MW4.exe or MW4x.exe was unable to locate an exact match for a file to be updated, although the patching utility was able to locate a file with the same name as the original file. However, the file found did not have either the same size or checksum as the file that the patching utility is seeking to update. A checksum is a count of bits done for comparison purposes.
What I did:
I installed MW4 Vengeance.
Installed MW4 Black Knight.
Installed BK patch.
Reinstalled MW4 Vengeance.
Reinstalled MW4 Black Knight.
Tried to reinstall BK patch and received error 0036.
Reason for this is because by reinstalling both games I gain the added mech lab functionality of BK in Vengeance (pretty cool). This is how I installed it years ago and it worked perfectly but I can't remember if I had the same error back in the day. Anyone else tried this?
I'm not even sure if it's a problem.

Sounds like a case of windows getting smarter over the years. Back in the day, you get a blue screen crash, now you get the windows error message.
Anyhow that's neither here nor there.
I suggest that since we haven't gotten anyone posting Vengeance or 'Mech4 related help yet on these forums you should try the all things MechWarrior reddit:www.reddit.com/r/mechwarrior/
You could also try these guys here...far as I know they're the only remaining players of the MechWarrior 4 series, although they play 'Mercs:...
Woops, seems I don't have the link on this PC. I'll have to find it later, but it might be posted somewhere else on these forums if you do a search for clan cayote.
