Good Method

This method which I've found out is one of the easiest methods. I hope it works for you too.

1. Copy or Cut the folder OnlineUpdate which is in Local Disk 'C'
2. Paste it in 'D' or New Volume 'E' or in your games folder.
3. If a pop up blocks you from copying saying that 'Cannot copy because file is open in 'ouc.exe' just skip them.

Reason :Because Microsoft Windows cannot search and find Online-update. The reason for that may be that some file may not have installed correctly.
