Updated but now require CD
I purchased TOH through Steam,
Today I downloaded the update patch 1.03, after it installed I tried to launch the game and now I get promoted to insert the CD. As this was purchased and downloaded online I don't have a CD, Does anybody have any suggestions ?

I am an idiot. I read that the update is not to be used for steam after the fact.
err the download patch 1.03 is for the CD/DVD game on disk, if you got it via download by Steam, then the download from steam will be 1.03 anyway.
you will need to start steam, then highlight TKoH in the game list, click on its property’s, then go to the "local files" tab then hit the "verify integrity of game cache", this should then re-download the correct .exe files and any .pbo etc files overwritten/altered by applying the patch that was for the CD/DVD version.
You could also just delete the TakeOnH.exe and steam will reacquire it when next started.
"err" is right.
Thanks for your help. I am back in business.
"verify integrity of game cache" fixed it.
I wont be installing updates from now on..
