RE: If you cant download the patch check it out

Thanks so much, this totally fixed the problem for me. Except I just fixed it by going to the "Options->Downloader Preferences" menu in the Launcher.exe. The dialog doesn't paint right away, so I just drag it by clicking ALT-left click on it and then I can see the options you mentioned. Works like a charm!
