Yes, this patch is for a game. The patch file is only 280 megs when you look at its properties. It doesn't say anything about it being zipped, unless it extracts itself upon installation. When you first click the patch, it automatically start the installshield wizard, lets you select a langauge, then says preparing installshield wizard. As it goes through the prepare part, it comes back and says I need 3000 megabytes of disk space. The program is on a drive with plenty of room! I don't get to the option screen where I tell the program where the original file is located. So, no I can't use the browse or custom option until it gets past that point.
One thing I thought of, but don't think it would work...What if I copied the "program files" & "documents and settings" folders into my d: drive, deleted it from c:, ran the patch, then copy back over? This would free the space I need, but I'm not sure if it will disrupt program paths and so on. This is the only thing I can think of, but want to make sure everything would be alright if I did that idea.
