Patch Notes from 2000-02-21

We will be releasing a client patch today at approximately 11am CST. This patch will disable the Ultima Messenger utility (you will no longer see the file “owo.exe” running in your task bar). Additionally, this patch will address a client crash involving books, and will include files related to our localization support.

If you have any difficulty receiving this patch, please check the following:

  • Check the "Patch" directory within your Ultima Online directory (the default location is C:\\Program Files\Ultima Online\Patch). This directory should be empty. Any files in this directory should be deleted.
  • If you are unable to connect to the patch server at all, and are using an original (Non-T2A) version of Ultima Online, you may need to update your verinfo file. For details on updating this file, please see the information posted at
  • Run a virus scan on your computer. Undetected viruses may cause conflicts with patching Ultima Online.

If after trying the above, you are still experiencing difficulty patching the Ultima Online client, please contact Technical Support at [email protected]
