This has been going on for weeks. It first started out with UO Patch not initiating startup of the client.exe. I would click 'ok' and it would just disappear. I would try to initiate by opening UOA, and it too would not open the client.exe after hitting ok. I could however get the game to start by going into its folder and using the client.exe directly. So I re-installed the game because I wanted to be able to use UOA. Now patching halts after 3minutes or so, and I get this now: Starting patch session...

You may be able to play the game with your current client. Check http://www.uo.com/ for help on resolving patching issues. Click OK to play the game or Cancel to abort. I will go through this over and over. I have re-installed several times to get back to this. I also have all of the specified ports open on my router and made sure Windows isn't blocking the game. Any ideas?
