Pretty much as stated - has the updater (as opposed to the complete 3-episode installer) worked for you or not?

Please state OS and basic hardware as well.

For me, the updater has not worked. Athlon X2 2000+, Windows XP Media Edition SP3 with .NET 4.0 framework installed.

I'm moving this to the Fan Feedback area as it's more fitting for that area than a technical issue that can be closed and locked later.  I am also interested in this information, I just want to keep the tech support area dedicated to resolving and closing problems.

Perhaps it might be useful to make it sticky for a little bit?

It worked for me the first time. Windows 7 32-bit, Intel Centrino Duo, .NET Framework 4.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Windows XP Service pack 3.  Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80 GHz, 2 GB Ram.  It did not work for me.  It stopped halfway through the update.  Then I had to control-alt-delete, click on processes and hit end process.(I could not hit cancel)...I did this 3 more times to make sure it wasn't just a "hiccup".

I tried the the patch but it didn't work. I have an XP personal computer. The full build installed just fine.

The only problem with this poll - most of the people it worked for are probably off playing the game while everybody it didn't work for (seems to be mostly people with XP computers) is stuck wishing they could.  Hopefully we'll have this figured out quickly!

It must be an XP thing. Won't work on my XP desktop, but works on my Win 7 64 bit laptop.

Worked fine for me.... took about 5 minutes to actually load once I double-clicked on it (due to it loading the entire file into memory perhaps?).  The actual patch process took about 10 minutes once the program started, so 15 minutes from start to finish.

The patch didn't work for me. It froze at 45% or so. Windows XP is it culprit.

Yeah- it didn't seem to work for me, but it's cool. As I said, I downloaded the whole game again, and although it crashes every 15 minutes, it works. I'll wait for part 4 to come out to fix it properly :)

No, on Windows XP SP3 it didn't work, I had to download the full 3 episodes single file (1.1 GB) to play the game.

I hope episode 4 (and 5) will be tested thoroughly, even on Windows XP.

Mine crashed quite often, usually when transitioning between screens that had musical changes as well. Which was every 20-30 minutes. For example, leaving the bookstore.
