Hello Rodgouin, and welcome to OPU (I think)! Well, to start, I am assuming you have the original game disk, and are trying to patch it. I my self have never tried to patch the original disk, so I don't know what troubles you are having. I suggest, thou, that you download the latest version of the game in general at http://www.outpostuniverse.net/gamedownload.php. This is the game itself, not a patch, so you just simply download, and extract it to a location you want it at.

PS it works fine on Windows 7 64 bit (what I am using), but you need to change "Disable desktop composition" in compatibility to make it look a little better.
I AM YOUR PET ROCK!!!!!!

The OPU version will work fine. I'm guessing the Sierra update installers might be 16-bit applications, which aren't supported by Vista/7 64.

The problem isn't that not changing that setting makes the game look worse, it's that it makes the game lag.
