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

How can I solve this?


1 Answer 1


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 you'll have to forward your comment to Adam, who originally posted the answer in the question body. All I did is extract it.
