I found I had a problem "An error occured" whilst patching the AOE beta for the first time.

How can I solve this?

The solution was to go to the C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Project S

copy the files in the temp patch folder into the project s folder

right click launcherupdate > run as adminstrator

then the patcher starts working again...

A similar error occurs when the new AOE Online game installer was not started as administrator! – powtac Aug 30 '11 at 17:07
@powtac you'll have to forward your comment to Adam, who originally posted the answer in the question body. All I did is extract it. – badp Nov 7 '11 at 17:06
