View Full Version : Anno 2070 Auto-Patcher: Error Uncompressing files, please start the patcher again!

I've newly bought the game today and followed the recommended installation instructions. After inserting the Activation key and starting the Auto-Updater, I got this error when it reached patch 2/29. Please advise asap. Thank you

Additional information: I've already tried to reinstall the game, and it still doesn't work. No other posts to help with this problem exists and I've been unable to register the game through the Uplay application, since it needs to be running first and I get stuck on the Updater. Please help!

First and most important, if you haven't already you should submit a support request at support.ubi.com

Second, you may find someone who's had this problem and found a solution if you check at the Anno 2070 official English language forums. They're on the German forums but the topics are all in English, you can find it at http://forums-de.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/133-ANNO-2070-Trenchcoat-s-Distillery

Thank you for your fast reply Moderator.

I have already sent an e-mail to support.ubi.com(no reply yet, but its only been 1 day) and have read through the German forum posts (luckily I can read German) and have found someone with a similar problem. Although they do not quote the exact Error, I believe it to be related. I would like to know if downloading and installing: http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/anno2070/Anno2070_Offlinepatcher_2_00.zip will work, since I'm probably on the factory default version of the game. This information would be of great help to me since I have limited Internet and and I have to consider if a 970MB file is worth the expense.

Thank you again.

!!Final Post in this Thread!!

I have followed the instructions of a similar thread and have succeeded in getting Anno 2070 to work properly.
For those who have the same problem, here is the solution: Go to the Anno Offline updates site and download the latest patch, currently that is http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/patches/anno2070/Anno2070_Offlinepatcher_2_00.zip (Caution: the patch size is 970MB). It does not matter which patch you are currently on.
Simpily run the .exe when it finished the download and follow the instructions. After this run Anno 2070 and it should be fine after a small update.
Thanks to the Moderator for the help.
