If you uninstalled 1.04, I recommend you uninstalling 1.10 and then deleting your Eastern_Front folder. Then installing 1.10 again.

Patches files are not removed by the initial uninstaller due to technical reason, however the patch would have removed they just fine if you had let it ;)

I have a very familiar bug. I have the newest version (I guess it is 1.1.1.1), and every time I click "play", nothing happens! If I change the coh-folder-settings, the bug "version is up to date" appears. If I choose the correct one, simply nothing happens!

I even reinstalled both, coh AND ef, cause I had some chaotic folder system, it didn't help!

The verson 1.0 worked properly, until I discovered the patch^^

What .NET framework(s) do you have?

EDIT: Are you sure that you have "Eastern_Front.module" in your CoH directory?

I have installed ef in the following path: /program files/thq/company of heroes [installation folder of coh]/eastern front [self-created folder]/ Eastern_Front.module

Shouldn't I install ef there? Can I simply move the files whitout reinstalling them?

My path is, ignoring the "(x86)" because i use x86 64...
C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Company of Heroes
and then over that directory i have Eastern_Front.module and Eastern Front folder, I attach a screenshot. My OS is in spanish but that should be enough ;D.

You shouldn't have self-created folder, the Module file MUST be in the main CoH folder, and real Eastern_Front Folder MUST be in the main CoH folder.

Ok.... can I simply move the folders there or am I forced to reinstall ef? I don't really like install things 5 times a day :D

Uninstall it if you can, Eastern Front has its own uninstaller. After that you can install again 1.10 and update to 1.11 and later 1.111.

Moving should be enough, just make sure that you also change the path in the launcher.

Yep, moving was enough, ef works!
The path was already correct.

Thank you all! ;)

I got the same problem. When I installed EF I trusted the setup to install the mod in the correct path. So now before I redownload Company of Heroes (~9gb), could someone please provide the correct install path so I can just move the folders?
