Doing a little Sunday Catchup here with a few files that were missed during the past week. We've got :

After the 1.45 patch was released, we identified an issue with the incremental version of this patch. If a user installs BF 1942 under the following order:

BF 1942 > 1.4 Patch > Battle of Britain Free Map > 1.4 - 1.45 incremental patch, the incremental patch installer fails.

The incremental install works fine under the following order:

BF 1942 > 1.4 Patch > 1.4 - 1.45 incremental patch.

We have addressed this issue and wish to re-release the 1.45 incremental patch.
