Please help me with the correct install route so I may get to play the game again.

Hi Jennifer,

 

Please try to update your game manually to the latest patch. Here a tutorial on how to do that:

After that you should be able to install the game.

 

Please let us know if that helped!

 

Thanks,

Ursula
