    If any "key" files have been changed since the installation of the previous public release, then you will see that message. That can happen if you've downloaded and installed a beta version or even a pre-release version from this forum. Or if any of the kye files have been modified/damaged since they were installed.
    What it means is the patch engine can't find a recognized set of files that it can patch. The patch engine can't update any files until/unless it is 100% certain of the contents of those key files and that the contents of those key files match exactly one of the previous versions that it is configured to patch.

    In any case the solution is to download and install the entire installation instead of just trying to apply the latest patch using the "Check for Updates" option.
    Download V7.5 and V8 from here: http://www.efilive.com/latest/cat/download-efilive

    P.S. To avoid confusion, the error message dialog box should explain that - it will be updated in the next release.

    Regards

    Ok thanks Paul. Not sure how it happened. The only files I've downloaded were sent from you when we were trying to figure out the error code with v7.5. I'll download the setup again.
    Thanks
