The patch is usually available for direct download from third party websites within a few days of being released to the public, this page will be updated soon with direct download links.Instead, simply have EADM installed on your computer and launch Spore.Spore automatically launches EADM and while both are running the game will ask if you want to proceed with downloading and installing the patch.I don’t know of a workaround other than uninstalling and reinstalling to the default location.
