1.1 Patch error: Catastrophic failure

Recommended Posts

I installed "Contract J.A.C.K." (Official 2 CDs) on Windows 10 Enterprise x64 LTSE 1809.
Then I install patch 1.1 ... an error occurs: "Catastrophic failure".
It is now impossible to uninstall the game through the Windows Control Panel.
Usually the “Catastrophic failure” error occurs after installing the "Contract J.A.C.K." game from the official CD  on Windows 10 if you installed the game without Administrative rights. A similar error occurs in the Nolf2 game, more details here:

Bug fix:
How to uninstall the game yourself:
1. Delete the folder with the installed game.

2. Remove these lines from the Registry
Before deleting lines from the Registry, save them first!
For Windows 10 [64 bit] remove these lines from the Registry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Monolith Productions\Contract Jack]

For Windows 10 [32 bit] remove these lines from the Registry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Monolith Productions\Contract Jack]

3. Remove the "Contract JACK" shortcut from the Desktop
4. Delete the game entry from the list of Installed Programs

Reinstall the game with Administrator rights:
1. Create a "New Folder" on your Desktop, copy CD2 first and then CD1 to this folder, agree to replace the files.
2. Run the Setup.exe file from the "New Folder" with Administrator rights.
3. Restart your computer.
4. Install patch 1.1 for "Contract J.A.C.K." with Administrator rights.
