    Hi all,

    I'm trying to install the UO Classic client on a brand new computer and it fails at a certain point duing the client patch. Also I downloaded the client from UO.com.

    It says the following:

    Error during session
    Your client may not be the most recent version.
    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 cant click ok because it is grayed out, I can only click cancel and when I do the client closes.

    Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    Trying that now, it looks like that may have resolved it. Thanks :thumbsup:

    Remember also any program UOA, UOAM, Etc has to be set to Admin also to work correctly if I am not mistaken. Does on my Vista at home anyways.
