  • I had an error like this I guess; if I well remember it got solved by itself.

    @gaxus4r this is a permission issue either run PU.exe as an administrator or relocate your game folder out of your system drive.

  • Project Admin

    What BL4CKZ375U said - this happens when PU.exe doesn't have permission to update files - ensure your PC user owns the folder you have MW3 in, run PU.exe as adminitrator and if all that doesn't work, try moving the files to your desktop and then try running PU.exe as administrator.
