Problem installing update

Post by Anders Samuelsson » Wed Feb 08, 2017 10:15 pm

Hello,

When I try to install the 1.4 update it just says "Farming simulator 17 (English) is not installed"

Any ideas on why it's not working?

You should be able to install the update, by reinstalling the game and then install the update. However like Preble 818 wrote did the update also change some things to the worse, so i recommend waiting for a hotfix for the current patch.

You need to install FS17, that's the problem. I had that happen to me before on FS15. Just install FS17, then install the update after you do and it will work.

You may think it is installed, but it is not.

Buy a new license? Are you sure you have a genuine copy of FS17? Wouldn't you just enter the product key you got from GIANTS through email or the product key behind your manual on the disc version?

Yes, but I have a laptop I travel with, 2 CPU,s and laptop at house for my wife and myself when I am at home. So I have used the 5 times allowed on digital copy. I will just have to patiently wait this one out. LOL.

Write a mail to Giants and they'll reset the counter so you're able to install it again :wink3:

Thanks for the information, I did not think of that as a viable solution but will give it a shot!
