0000102: Soldat 1.6.2 patcher doesn't know where Soldat is installed
First time running the 1.6.2 patcher it will default to want to patch Soldat at "C:\Soldat" instead of it's actual directory. That metadata needs to be saved at a known location like the registry or %localappdata%.
Run the 1.6.2 patcher. Click next until it asks where to patch to.

To try it a second time, delete this registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Soldat patch 1.6.1-1.6.2_is1

...or wherever it appears on 32-bit machines, otherwise the patcher will remember where it last patched.
No tags attached.

Regardless of knowing the directory or not, it installs only to folders named "Soldat" so if you install the game and change the folder name to say, "Soldat 1.6.2" it will create a new folder called Soldat INSIDE the Soldat 1.6.2 folder (of course, after you navigate and select that location as the default is C:\Soldat) with all the patched & updated files

Seems like it uses the wrong registry path
