oh, you should uninstall combat arms, then go to its directory and delete everything. Then reinstall it, and hopefully you can get the combartarms.exe with the patch already included. if not, install it anyway and try a different folder to install it in. if that doesnt work, then make sure your internet connection is configured right, say, your firewall has "allowed" the C.A. patch uploader or whatever its called, to work. otherwise, dive into C.A.'s forums.
