I installed the runtime libraries and downloaded the Eclipse Renewal.rar
After unpacking it comes with the updater, the lib folder and data folder.
After running the updater it says it needs to update, downloads 5 files to /temp (1.8.3 and the subpatches H* for it) yet the updater doesn’t unpack these temp files anywhere and the local version remains at 0,0,0,0
Also manually unpacking the server and client maps to the same folder as the updater doesn’t change the local game version. It will redownload the files to the temp folder each time.
Running as both administrator and regular user, it didnt change.

No Windows defender options protecting against file alterations by other programs (as it literally breaks any game).
