    Hi I have just downloaded and tried to install the patch for Dead Space 2 and i keep getting this message.
    The program can't install because Activation .86x.dll is missing from your computer.Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. I did remove and reinstall the game but it just keeps saying the same message it is a valid game and it does activate correctly, any one else have this problem or any idea how to fix it.

    Are you trying to double click to install it? If so it will never install due to Visceral/EA not knowing how to make a self-installer patch.

    You have to actually go to the install folder on your C:\ drive, I believe its c:\Electronic Arts/Dead Space/...something like that, and copy and paste the downloaded file.

    It worked like a charm this way but has been a very long time since I had to patch this way when it comes to a game.
