Can't update the game

I just download the game, and I'm trying to execute it for the first time. But I'm getting this error.
Does anyone know what could be?

    I was only able to update the game when installing via steam. So, if someone has this problem, try to install the game via Steam and update from there.

    Alright, I think I found a solution.

    I was having this issue for the past week or so. Using the Download button on the PapayaPlay website was not working. Upon launching UWO it gets stuck trying to connect to server to look for new versions/updates of the game and fails. I noticed the steam files in the installation folder and also iseezerg's post here so I tried Steam.

    You can install the game via Steam and it will detect the latest versions and update the game (you may have to repeatedly click Play in the Steam launcher to get it to update over and over).

    After getting it to the latest version via Steam, I clicked Play and the UWO game launcher came up, click play again. Click through the first few UWO screens to login, but then I receive a steam pop-up to create a Vertigo games account. I already had an account so it wouldn't let me recreate one with my same email or login. It should have auto logged me in, but that also wasn't working for me. Just gives an error in the game regarding failed to authenticate/access database.

    Instead, I was able to navigate to the UWO steam folder and manually launch the game. This allowed me to login with my Papaya account instead of running into the Steam/Vertigo issue. Location may depend on where you installed Steam. By default it might look something like this path:
    C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Uncharted Waters Online

    In that folder for UWO, you can manually double click/launch the game with the file application named "GVOnline" note that there may be two, one is labeled as an "application" under file type, the other is "icon". You want to click the "application" one. You should be able to set this as a shortcut on your desktop to avoid constantly navigating to the folder (just right click the GVOnline file, create shortcut, and move that new shortcut to your Desktop).
