Hey Guys I purchased a copy of Modern Warfare 2 several months, but just recently my hard-drive has crashed. I tried to re-install the game, but unfortunately I lost my CD's, however I did sync it with my Steam account after originally installing the game, so i was able to download it through steam. My problem now is I need to patch the game to play the multiplayer, but every time I try to patch the game I get an error message stating:

A valid call of duty modern warfare instillation could not be found

Thanks in advance for the help guys!!

I don't have this game, so I can't verify, but it's possible the game is already patched. Steam tends to sell already patched games. Have you tried playing online?

Steam patches games automatically and usually you can not manually patch them yourself. You are either already patched to the most current version available, or the patch is not available for your game. The former is more likely.
