I get an error Invalid patch file on win 7?

Asked By 190 points N/A Posted on -

Hi. I have a game installed on my Windows 7 PC.

The game is called Rise of Nations, and when trying to open it, it shows me an error reading

Invalid Patch File.

I'm not sure if this game was installed by using any patch. So I'm not sure why I am receiving this kind of error. I need advices and solutions.

Secondly you can manually update the 1.03 update patch.

  • Note Click OK when you receive the error message.
  • In Windows Explorer, locate the Patch folder such as E:Patch in the game CD-ROM.
