[?] - What is This?
Although this patch automatically updates the origin75.exe file, its
associated *.DLLs, and all non-editable Origin support files, it is designed
to spare those files which are modified by you, the user. Modifiable files are
referred to as support files. Origin's list of support files icnludes, but is
not necessarily limited to: *.OGS, *.OTP, *.OTW, *.OTM, and *.CNF
When the patch comes across a file that has been modified, it
will notify the installer of the patch (you) through a warning message similar
to the following:
warning wpt0036: Old File not found. However, a file of the same name
was found. No update done since file contents do not match.
A list of these file messages is automatically generated and saved to a file
called PATCH.ERR. This list serves as a quick guide for file replacement.
To locate Patch.ERR, launch Windows Explorer and navigate to the same folder
in which the Service Release EXE is stored (typically your Origin \Updates
folder). To read Patch.ERR, open it with a text editor such as Notepad. To replace
any or all support files not updated by the patch, download e75sr3_files.zip
and extract the desired file(s) to the appropriate Origin folder. If you
do not find a file you are looking for, please contact
the Technical Support department.
Please note that our sample files, including projects and multimedia demonstrations,
are not included in the ZIP file. Only those files that are critical to Origin's
operation are included in the file.
