Sorry not quite sure why Updater is not running, this is a first instance of this we ever heard about. You might wanna uninstall the game completely, and reinstall using our client.
Also one thing you might wanna try is this:
1) Click on the organizer button in any folder. And select Folder and Search options. Go to view, and under Hidden Files and Folders, or Drives - click show hidden files.
2) Now navigate to C:/users/YOUR USERNAME/AppData/local/DoF/
3) In that file, locate and delete file called local_saved_data
Also - if all fails you can still use the Steam client. If you`ll have any lag issues there, let me know here, and I`ll give you instructions on fixing them. Very easy.
