I have good news for owners of the game Painkiller Resurrection. The Updater of the game works again. I hope that we will no longer have more problems with this patch.

To use the Updater go to C:\Program Files\JoWooD\Painkiller Resurrection\Bin and run the ResurrectionUpdater.exe.

In the near future I’m planning to create my first level for Painkiller Resurrection. It will be a simple short mission. Watch out!

  • Nealo

    anyone else having problems with the auto-updater?

    • Have you tried my solution yet? And if so, did it work for you?

  • I had a similiar problem. At one point in time, it wouldn’t work for me either, it has something to do with microsoft .Net framework, in microsoft windows auto update. Fixing this is long and tedious, and still does not always work, you have to keep repeating steps until it does. I wouldnt recomend it to anyone.
    So, the alternative is this. go to this link :
    this worked for me. Once you download and install, if you still get the message to update, then try your auto-update again. NOTE : it is very slow at getting going. At one point I actually thought my computer had FORGOTTEN that I clicked on it the PK Res Updater,LOL!! Anyhow, usually this is located in : Windows Start button (lower left corner of PC task bar) Programs (or All Programs, depending on you OS) DreamCatcher Painkiller Resurrection Resurrection Updater. That is how it worked for me. Now, my computer had a crash about 1-2 months ago, and when I re-installed PK Res, the auto updater was working again (go figure). I am sure that this had something to do with where I was at, as far as the microsoft .NETframework Updates was concerned, lol. To this day, I am still currently having problems with .NETframework GRRRR. If you wish to try to fix the .NET”blaahblaahblaah” issue, I can try to help with that, so please do not hesitate to ask me how. It feels good when I can help someone else, rather then always being helped 🙂 (shout out to HV, the “PK Guardian Angel” he has always been of great help.)
