Angry Birds Rio PC v1.2.2 Update Now Available

This latest update for the PC version of Angry Birds Rio brings it current with iOS and Android, which is great news. A HUGE thanks to DLM for emailing us with this news and some additional tidbits which I’ll go into next.

How to update:  If you already have Angry Birds Rio PC installed the next time you open it up you should be prompted to update.  The update involves downloading and installing a new executable.  Note, the update deletes the previous installer executable, so if you want to keep previous version make a backup of the executable file first (thanks DLM!). If you don’t yet have Angry Birds Rio for the PC you can download it here.

In addition to this update containing Carnival Upheaval and more hidden fruit in the form of papayas, it also includes a “Redeem Code” button on the opening screen. This where users who purhcase Rio on DVD or Blu-ray will enter their code to unlock the Golden Beachball episode (click for more info).

For more details on what’s include in this update, plus links to walkthroughs and more check out our original post about the latest Carnival Upheaval update.

There is no code required for the demo version. To unlock the full version just purchase it in game.

I purchased angry birds rio on my pc but it only came with the first 4 chapters. How can I get the rest that simply say “coming soon”? I have never been “prompted to update” as it says it should above.

You can manually go to download.angrybirds.com and click on “Download Free Demo”. You will get the new .exe file and your progress should remain intact.

If you click the ” i ” on the main page, what version does it say? Should say v1.x.x.

By Danielle

YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! It just completely removed the game from my computer. And no, I didn’t tell it to or click anything but install.
Now what? I not only paid for it, and never got any prompt for update, but now it’s gone!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try reinstalling the new .exe file (which should read AngryBirdsRioInstaller_1.2.2.exe).

By Danielle

I just reinstalled it and all my scores and everything are right back now. Still no prompt to update and it says version 1.2.2 (exe is not next to it) Now what?

By Danielle

If it says v1.2.2 when you click the ” i ” on the main page, you are up to date. You should have all of Carnival Upheaval. That’s as far as PC so far, with more updates expected soon.

I have AB Rio for PC and it also asks me to update but I want to keep my progress intact. How do I do that?

Also, once I have updated the game and replace only the new .EXE file with the old one it asks for another update again. Why?
P.S(Sorry for the trouble :p)

Updating should leave your progress intact, but you can manually back up your .lua files (copy them to some desktop folder). Those files are typically found in your /user/AppData/Rovio/ folder, but that path can vary slightly depending on your version of Windows.

You need to install the new .exe file, not just copy it over.

By Danielle

I have never been “prompted to update” ever. What gives?

By Marko

I installed Angry Birds on a PC but can not run it because it says “OpenGL 2.0 is not supported” Can someone help me please?

You should probably update your drivers. Re: Angry Birds FAQ

By ABFan

After updating, i.e(the new files have been downloaded), do I need to delete the older Angry Birds.exe file?

They should overwrite

By Kamikaze_Bird

I have v1.1.0 of Angry Birds Rio.
But when I open it, there is no option to update. Help me, please?

You can go to download.angrybirds.com and click “Download Free Demo”. This will get you the newest .exe file and should maintain your progress.

I have a May 2012 update for AB rio. I can’t seem to find what version it is. But my question is, if I have an install/update date for May of 2012, is this probably the latest version or do I need to try and do an update?

thanks
