Lo and behold, the auto-update doesn't work anymore because Bioware, in their wisdom, have deleted the patch! This is what I get:
No worries - I have google-fu. I googled for the patch - the name of the file is NWNEnglish1.69HotUUpdate.exe - but whenever I found it (including on bioware's own website), my download would begin and then, after a few megabytes, fail and not tell me why.Bioware wrote:Your game version is: 1.63.8048 English

I finally found a file called NWNEnglish1.69HotUUpdate.zip at Gamer Shell - the direct link is http://www.gamershell.com/download_2887 ... l?02:51:06 . I downloaded the file (even if it's a zip file and not an exe file), and it downloaded fine. However, when I tested it for viruses, my anti-virus (Avast) told me that this file had a W32 virus! (Sorry, not sure which virus... I asked Avast to fix this before I thought of taking notes - my mistake).
At any rate, Avast fixed the file but did not delete it - and when I scanned the file again, Avast told me it was clean. But now I am worried., and I haven't run the file yet. If this file had a virus before, could it still have a virus now?
Any ideas? Can I run this file, or is it safer not to?
