20. having trouble whenever i log in my account? It says ACCT IS ALREADY LOG IN SOMEWHERE ELSE.
First try to log back into the Line that you were playing on prior to being disconnected. If the original line is down, (the one you were logged onto when the crash occurred) and you are receiving the error logging into another line, patiently wait for the original line to come back online. Once it is up, and this does not solve the problem, contact a GM via live help on the homepage.

21. Problem with image verification is not correct!' While registering an account.

If your operating system is Vista, please do not install HS5 client under drive C but under drive D or E. If you don’t have drive D or E, here is how to make a new partition under vista system.
To start Disk Management:
1. Log on as administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
2. Click Start, click Run, type compmgmt.msc, and then click OK.
3. In the console tree, click Disk Management. The Disk Management window appears. Your disks and volumes appear in a graphical view and list view.

How to create a new partition or a new logical drive
To create a new partition or logical drive on a basic disk:

1. In the Disk Management window, complete one of the following procedures, and then continue to step 2:
To create a new partition, right-click unallocated space on the basic disk where you want to create the partition, and then click New Partition.
To create a new logical drive in an extended partition, right-click free space on an extended partition where you want to create the logical drive, and then click New Logical Drive.
2. In the New Partition Wizard, click Next.
3. Click the type of partition that you want to create (either Primary partition, Extended partition, or Logical drive), and then click Next.
4. Specify the size of the partition in the Partition size in MB box, and then click Next.
5. Decide whether to manually assign a drive letter, let the system automatically enumerate the drive, or do not assign a drive letter to the new partition or logical drive, and then click Next.
6. Specify the formatting options you want to use by using one of the following procedures:
If you do not want to format the partition, click Do not format this partition, and then click Next.

b. Click the file system that you want to use in the File system box.
You can change the disk allocation unit size, and then specify whether to perform a quick format, or enable file and folder compression on NTFS volumes.
Click Next. 
7. Confirm that the options that selected are correct, and then click Finish.

26. I've downloaded manually already and installed it, everything goes smoothly as described when using the manual patch. The game starts and everything and I get to play. but if I close it and start HS5 from my Start Menu, it reverts back to v0.21 and starts auto-updating. I have to run the manual patch again if I want to play.

Solution: This problem may occur in the Windows Vista system for any folder saved in 'C:\Program Files\' and may in turn lead to problems in installation, update and subsequent game operation. Please take the following steps to fix the problem:

1. If you have installed HighStreet 5 and the folder is located at 'C:\Program Files\HighStreet 5\', you only need to move the HighStreet 5 folder to another location or drive like 'C:\ HighStreet 5\' or 'D:\ HighStreet 5\'. Please note that the above operation can only be carried out by the Administrator. If you are going to manually update after moving the HighStreet 5 folder, you will need to indicate the new folder location to the update program.

2. If you have not installed the HighStreet 5 game client, please DO NOT install the program in 'C:\Program Files\'. Please install in any other location for example: "C:\HighStreet 5\', 'D:\HighStreet 5\'.
