    I have been with UO for...well a couple days...
    I have seen posts from people who are unable to patch. I thought myself lucky because I have a fast conn and a machine made for gaming. Lucky me I get to avoid this. :)
    Well...not now. I can't get the last patch. (this means it could happen to you too) I followed the link it gives..
    That took me to UO hearald. So I tried support and patch. I found a long list of EA's games, nothing to do with UO.
    The real irony: lastnight I was on the phone with tech from another company. While I was waiting online games came up. I spent the whole time trying to convert him from wow to UO useing my best sultry female voice.
    Anyway...back to trying to find support. And next time you see a post from someone that can't patch...could be you...

    Oh as a side note...when directed to an "update page" I was told it's not available.

    Great, over and over they send me to UO Hearald which tells me what the update is about, but not help to get the update.

    First question, which client are you using?
    If classic, find the patch folder and empty it, then try patching again.

    Also look for a file called 'patchlog'. Open it in notepad and scroll to the bottom. It will tell you which file failed to patch.

    Right click your icon if you are running windows 7 or vista. Select run as admin. You should patch correctly after that.
