I purchased "Battlefield 1942 The Complete Collection" from Bestbuy yesterday for $10. It includes Battlefield 1942, and all 3 expansions and also Battlefield Vietnam. I had BF 1942 online to work last night and when I played Vietnam this morning I got the "invalid cd key" error message, went back to 1942 and got the message there. So basicly when I go to play online with any of these games I get an "invalid cd key" message. I can not play in any multiplayer games on any of these games without getting that message. I have tried a few things which I will explain below...
So far I have tried:
- Uninstalling/Reinstalling - Double Checking the CD Key in Windows Registry - Updating to Patch 1.61 (I had 1.6 on the disk) - Emaling EA about the issue (I tell them the issue I am having and they tell me something random that dosnt relate)
Someone please help me!
Try calling tech support, that way they can't just dismiss you like they can with email. One of my friends had a similar problem with BF2 and EA just ended up giving him a new CD key.
