Hi, I installed the game Zeus and also the patch. But when I run the .exe file, an error appears saying "insert a disc". How can I solve it? Thanks

Quoted from SmallB:
Hi, I downlaoded and installed the game Zeus. It appears in an internal folder of my pc. I also installed the italian patch. But when I run the .exe file to launch the game, an error appears saying "insert a disc". How can I solve it? Thanks
Some additional info for whomever helps you. 1. Downloaded Zeus from where/who/internet site? 2. English->Italian Language patch or some other patch; again from what site? 3. Your operating system is Mint, Centos or Windows?

The only Zeus related download at that site is for the demo. JackFuste's Widescreen Patch was intended for the expansion Poseidon CD(perhaps Steam and GOG digital downloads). It maintained the CD check which perhaps the Full Game Purchased digital downloads qualifies. Sajuuk or another can speak on that from their experiences as I have only the CD versions.
If you want to play the Demo before buying Poseidon(GOG has sales nearly monthly) then; 1. Uninstall via Win 10 Apps. 2. Restart. 3. Install the Demo again but do not apply the Widescreen patch. 4. Restart(optional) and play the Demo.
As for an Italian version of the game; I heard GOG has a special Patch but I don't know how reliable/available the info/patch is. You could try Applying the Widescreen patch after installing the Italian patch; should work but no guarantee and it can be reversed if you take the proper precautions(backup the replaced files before overwriting).
