I am sorry that I am bring this up and has been questioned before, but I am a little confuse and perplex, because I've been reading the threads and saw some info on installing and upgrading patches, but I just don't understand how to do it. For example:


I went to DCS home page and found the latest patch which is A-10C_patch_en_1.1.1.1-1.bin which is 1.78gb and then there is another patch A-10C_patch_en_1.1.1.1.exe which that is 1.27mb. After I downloaded both the 1.78gb and the 1.27mb files then put them in a folder, I ran the one that is the 1.27mb .exe filed. After it went through all the opening of the program to install it, it error out and then told me that it could not find the A-10C_patch_en_1.1.1.1-1.bin file. After reading the info on how to run this patch:




Double-click to A-10C_patch_en_1.1.1.1.exe file to start the installer.


It is recommended to turn off anti-virus and security software because they can slow the installation process considerably.


If you have problems after installing the patch (like slow frame rate or crashes), please do a full re-installation. To do so:


1. Uninstall A-10C

2. For Windows 7 users, look in your /Users/(name)/Saved Games/ and delete the DCS Warthog folder.

3. Reboot

4. Defrag the drive that A-10C will be installed to

5. Install full version

6. Reboot"


Now, is this patched the full version?


Do I run this on top of the version?


Do I need to uninstall the version which is my original CD of the A-10C game?


Do you see where I am coming from? I guess I don't understand it.


I am a little concern because I didn't want to uninstall the A-10C game version) and risk lowering my number of reinstallation my A-10C game. I already had to reinstall it once and I have 9 attempts left. .


Could anybody help me on this?
