Try reinstalling the game and following the instructions at the front of the thread. Make sure you replace the game files with the patch.

First find the game installation in Windows, so you know the path, leave the window open and remember how it looks. Then patch and try to select the correct location, examine how the game installation changed and see if you replaced any files or if new folder were created instead(hinting of the location being wrong)

Ok I managed to get the hotfix to work. The patches created a new folder called redist inside my existing Penumbra folrder. I simply dragged these folders out and into the penumbra folder. I then installed the hotfix.

BUT, I cannont use my Novint Falcon with the game now. This is the main reason I wasnt to play the game.

What can I do? Will there be another hotfix for the HaptX version?

Not sure about a HaptX specific version, you will have to check with http://haptx.com/ that created it.

So, I loved Penumbra Overture and I'd like to get the sweet deal you're offering on Black Plague and Requiem, but the demo is crazy full of problems, presumably due to my ATI Radeon 4850 HD card. Is there anything I can do with just the demo to fix things up, or do the proposed fixes only function on the full version?

I guess I am also okay with just buying the game if there's a patch that definitely works.

If Penumbra Overture worked OK then I am 99% sure the others will too.

Oddly, Black Plague definitely doesn't work at all. Every texture glitched frequently throughout the entire demo. It was playable, but not pretty. Plus, the atmosphere suffered a lot.

Overture had no graphical irregularities at all, so I don't know what exactly the difference between the two is, but none of the graphics settings had an effect. Even at 800x600 with everything turned off, the glitches were exactly the same.

Durandal: You downloaded the Black Plague demo from where? Just wanna make sure so it is the latest version.
