I have not played this for a very long time so want to update to update 4.17 from my 4.12 4241 version. When I unzip the update file and run it I get a message saying that update cannot find my Wings over Flanders Fields installation. I have tried running the update as administrator and disabling my anti virus software but to no avail. Anyone got any ideas please?

Quoting Pol here:

WOFF uses the registry as do many programs.
So nuked windows = nuked WOFF if you formatted the C: drive.

If you did not format, then remove any OBD_games folders in c:\user\YOURNAME\app_data\roaming.

Also remove the old WOFF install folder,

Install WOFF from clean install files. How to install is there in the WOFF UE FAQ.

Thank you for that Aris. I ended up uninstalling and re-installing the program and it now works fine with the latest update.
