For all you Vista users, you need to add a data string to your registry. The Battlefield 2 Patch is not recognizing the directory to which it's installed and Vista isn't pointing it in the right direction. XP Users, this should work for you as well. To put the fix in your registry go to Run, type regedit, navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Wow6432Node>Electronic Arts>EA Games>Battlefield 2". Now create a New String by right clicking in that directory, select "New String", name it "InstallDir" and in the Data put "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA Games\Battlefield 2" (or wherever you have it installed). Save it, verify everything is correct, and run the patch.
ok so i cant run reg editor, (i cant on someone else's computer but not this one) basically for some reason it doesnt exist. where can i find it? do i have to download it? i do have vista of course

I got this error and by perusing this forum was able to fix it, though when I reinstalled BF2 it didnt even create an installation directory entry in Registry. However, I was able to sort of figure it out *IQ 160 tested as a kid*, create the string and using you guys smarts, it installed Patch 1.41 the first try. Now to see if it works...

Guys be SUPER careful adding skins or in my latest case that BF2 Tweaker program, it wont let me connect to my fave servers so total reinstall was only option.

ok guys u know how ur saying its suppose to be under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Wow6432Node>Electronic Arts>EA Games>Battlefield 2
when i go to mine it says HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Wow6432Node>Electronic Arts>Battlefield bad company 2. also under the electronic arts folder there are EA core and Electronic Arts and when i even open thos folders i dont see EA GAMES. i guess thats why the patch is not finding it. and i cant even copy one of thos folders and make a EA GAMES folder then paste the Battlefield files under there.
So i was wondering if anyone got any suggestions for me and what i can do so i can get this patch on battlefield going and start playing

Note: the names of the folders might not be accurate here, i suggest to copy the folder name of your posts for more accurate results
hope this helped
