It means they have 'upgraded' something so the little advertisement window in the upper left of the game launcher is broken and so you get script errors. I am getting them too.

I never use the game launcher thingie. I'm always starting TOAW
by clicking on a shortcut that points to the actual executable
itself. I have three shortcuts now: 4.1.0.5, 4.1.0.21, and 4.1.0.31
and I've never had a problem with any of them. The game launcher
thingie just takes up memory in core for no useful purpose. It's
irrelevent and should be avoided IMHO. There are no command line
arguments passed to the game engine at startup so there's no reason
to not use shortcuts in lew of using the launcher. I have deleted
the launcher program from my directory so there's no danger I might
use it.

Yeah the launcher is a broken useless mess and the sooner Matrix/Slitherine drop those abominations from their games the better.

Change your shortcut to load "Opart 4.exe" instead of autorun.exe.

SShhhh !! Don't let the man know that we can circumvent his adverts, he'll soon figure out how to make it so we can't
