Something may be wrong with the FTP link (maybe one too many FTP letters?)...I can't connect to get to the file even from the product's download page.

*** UPDATED: They fixed the link and it now works! ***

Temporary fix until they fix the link:

If you copy the link and paste it into a browser. Go to the beginning of the link and erase the extra "ftp/" after http:// Hit enter and it will start downloading.

{EDIT} That works. Updated successfully.

hi
I am hoping some one here can help me with some info about this program and answer a few questions as im not a software expert.
Now I have a laptop it has direct x 11 already.

Every patch for WITW up until this latest patch 1.01.12 I have not needed to upgrade the directx so what is so different about this one.

Now on that subject of this directx update if its a dircectx 9c download which is needed to make the latest patch work to in fact make the game work it seems to me that we are going backwards I thought directx 11 would work fine
am I missing something here, again I like to point out im no expert on computer software as long as the laptop is running fine and I can play my games I don't go nosing around inside it.

On a more broader subject does this download have any effect on WITE now and my laptop as a whole.

So if any one can enlighten me I would be grateful

Regards

Latest WITW and WITE are using engine which is based on the latest MS DirectX 9c SDK (June 2010), therefore some PCs аре missing required DX9 dlls.

When you install latest DX9c it doesn't downgrade existing DX11. These are different libraries which can coexist on the same machine.

Blame Microsoft as they didn't include the latest DirectX9 libraries in any of their newer Windows OS, forcing many game publishers to add an extra 100MB download to their files.

I'm loving the "select the AD by clicking on it's box on screen". Really loving it. Especially in the cases where the titles used to overlap and it was hard to cipher which one it was you wanted. They arrange themselves to be clickable. It's great. I'm using it all the time.

Did I mention I like this? :-) Great job guys.
