When Sacred 2 updates, I receive this message: "Unable to execute/patch file. The O S denied access to a specific file". I have Windows 8.1.

This means that the patch doesn't have necessary access to write to the destination patch. The easiest way to fix this is to run the game/patch as Administrator. Right click the executable file and select Run as Administrator then the patch will have access to system files and folder and it should deploy the files normally.
