Q: The REGISTER.EXE keeps failing to register or Patch says i need to register my game
A1: It's not a problem if it says you need to register your game ( again ).
A2: Since the registration process uses Internet Explorer to acces the Internet ( no matter what your default web browser you have ) you'll need to have cookies enabled in it, it helps to clear the cookies before attempting to register. Also, since the cookies need to authenticate with a server, it's recommended to have an exact timezone selected and an updated time for your system, or else the cookies can expire as soon as they're created, intrerupting the communication process.
A3: If on Vista run the Patch and/or REGISTER.EXE as Administrator
A4: If you encounter an HTTP error "12057" you'll need to uncheck the following option in Internet Explorer: Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Security options -> "Check for server certificate revocation"
A5: You basically need to STOP any firewall/antivirus that can interfere with the online key checking, have all updates for Windows and IE
A6: Try to write the key/password with small case letters, even by changing your password with one that has small case letters
A7: Try to run REGISTER.EXE in "Safe Mode with Networking"
A8: Even also try to register at a friend, you only need some files from the Witcher folder, put them on a USB flash stick or something, you do not need Data & System folders, you do not need to install the game on your friend's computer. Just run REGISTER.EXE there, if it works ( and it did to a lot of people that could not register from their houses ) then export the registry keys on the registered computer: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CD Projekt RED and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CD Projekt RED and import them in your game system. After this retry to patch.
Q: In case of Patch 1.4 installation errors
in Windows XP:
@Windows XP Service Pack 3 (2600) Non IE/Netscape 11.0
@Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (6001) IE 7.0.6001.18000
A1: The patching process needs about ~3GB of free disk space on the partition the game is installed.
A2: Reboot computer into Windows "Safe Mode with Networking" and try to install the patch.
A3: The patcher needs .NET Framework 1.1, 2.0, 2.0SP1 and 3.0 ( do not install 3.0 SP1 or 3.5 Beta, if you have them installed please uninstall ALL the .NET versions, and reinstall only the ones mentioned ), 64bit users need these also: 2.0, 2.0SP1, 3.0
A4: The patch files need to be in the same folder and have their original file names as the patcher application checks them and it might crash if the files are not found. See this link: http://witcher.wikia.../wiki/1.4_patch about the exact file names.
Q: Problem with "Catastrophic Failure communicate" or something about a "language.key"
A: You should disable and uninstall all the antivirus programs (especially Comodo and Kaspersky ) and any virtual drive applications. reboot and retry to patch. You can reinstall them after the patch has been applied successfully.
BEWARE: an *unofficial* alternate route to patch the game
2. Put the wanted language packs and adventures in the new folder that the unpacking process created, so that SETUP.EXE and the patch packs are in the same folder.
3. Run SETUP.EXE.
Authentication, installation and modification all should go ahead with no problems, modification will take some time though.
Q: I've been waiting more that 2 hours for the patching to finish, yet it looks like it's not even patching
A: Depending on your systems specs the patching process will take some time to end, while working the hard drive activity light should flicker a lot. If it does not flicker or more than 2 hours have passed since you've started the patch it is recommended to stop the patch, uninstall The Witcher, reboot, reinstall The Witcher and patch to 1.4.
Q: I am an Windows XP 32-Bit user and I’m having error code 111 during the “Modifying game files” process of the patch installation.
A: Disable your /3GB and /PAE switches in boot.ini
Q: I downloaded the EE Upgrade from 4players and the German Language pack from Rapidshare and when I want to install it says that I have the wrong Language Pack
A: Somehow some language packs spread throughout the internet are too small and may not work properly. Please use the official download source
Q: The patch complains that it can't find the needed language pack
A: The patching process needs at least the TWEE_Upgrade.exe file and a language pack file ( it needs the language pack file for the language in which the game is installed on your system ). If you have the US or UK version you could try to get both language file packs. You can add more languages once the initial patching process is finished correctly. You can then change in-game what language the voices and the subtitles will be.
Q: Can I install the extra missions and the bonus material later or will I have to install them with the patch?
A: The 2 extra adventures can be installed later, the bonus material does not need to be installed at all
1. The two middle ones are adventures, that's obvious. But what are the other two? Which one do I install first? And does one of these files contain the EE? Because on the page where I started the download, one of them said 'language pack' and the other 'bonus pack'. Is the bonus pack the upgrade to EE?
2. I've found them all now, or is there more? Am I missing something?
