It's not to clear. That's the same thing that happened to me. EA's site has the correct patch.

lol this is a easy one to fix.I just had the same problem.First don't open it.Save it.And when you save it, add .exe at the end of the filename before you save it.Now it is a exe file(exacutable file).Just go to the folder you saved it in and double click it and the rest is history.

Dude that is not the problem that is going on here. the patch is executing others wise it wouldn't be looking for an installation of battlefield.
