this isn't a problem with the installation of the game like so many people have encountered, but instead, one that comes up when loading a mission - can someone please decipher this and let me know if there's a proper solution:
i can't continue on with the mission and it's really annoying me :(

Copy the pak files from the CD, overwriting the ones on the hard drive. 1. Put the first disc in the drive 2. Go into my computer and right click on the disc and select "explore" or "browse" 3. Browse into the Setup folder, then the Data folder 4. Right click on the uo folder and select copy 5. Close this window 6. Now browse to the game directory (default is C:\Program Files\Call of Duty) 7. Go to the edit menu and select paste (if it asks you if you wish to overwrite select yes) Once the file copy is done repeat the above steps for disc 2.
hmmm ... either i did something wrong, or the game is just fux0red.

Discussion Thread --------------------------------------------------------------- Response (Keith Weber) - 09/21/2004 09:14 AM Move your save games to a temporary place. Then do a manual uninstall of both games and reinstall them. This answer is for an Advanced user. Please do not attempt the below solution if you are not comfortable editing the Registry. Damaging the Registry could result in very adverse effects to your system. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. First it will be necessary to remove the registry keys the games creates. Please be cautious when working with the registry as it is very sensitive. Deleting the wrong thing can result in complete operating system failure. 1) Click Start button > Run. 2) At the prompt type: REGEDIT. The registry editor will open. 3) Click the "+" next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 4) Click the "+" next to SOFTWARE. 5) Click the "+" next to ACTIVISION. 6) Right-click on the CALL OF DUTY folder and select Delete. 7) Right-click on the CALL OF DUTY UNITED OFFENSIVE folder and select Delete. 8) Close the registry editor. Once the registry keys are removed, we'll need to remove the game files from your hard drive. These instructions assume you've installed the games in the default directory. 9) Double-click the My Computer icon. 10) Double-click the C:\ drive. 11) Double-click Program Files. 12) Right-click on the Call of Duty folder and select Delete. Remove the COD.INI and CODUO.INI files from your hard drive. 13) Click the Start button > Find (or Search) > Files & Folders. 14) Search your C:\ drive for a file named COD.INI. 15) The file should be located in C:\WINDOWS. 16) Delete this file. 17) Search your C:\ drive for a file named CODUO.INI. 18) The file should be located in C:\WINDOWS. 19) Delete this file. 20) Reboot your machine. At this point the games are completely removed from your system.

I get the same error neonspyder and tried all those suggestions you got from them... STILL occurs :(. I think we're screwed until they put out a bug fix/patch for this and other issues. I spent hours last night searching around the net, through various forums, etc. for any resolution to this issue that someone may have come up with and found nothing that worked. So until Activision gets off their asses and puts out a patch, I think we're fucked. What ticks me off is wasting all that time uninstalling both CoD and CoD:UO like that and then reinstalling. Plus reading through the numerous reports of other bugs as well, they sure as hell didn't spend sufficient time testing this out for an extensive period of time to weed out bugs. That's pretty common these days with game developers/publishers. They seem to just like to rush the games out of production and onto the consumer market without putting in the effort to release a game with minimal bugs & errors :( ugh.
Well, if ya find anything that does work, please do post it here. I'll do the same as I continue to scrounge around the net then. Later.
i'll send activision another messege, but in the meantime, i'm goin to exchange my copy for another later today. perhaps the next copy i grab would be bug free *chuckles*
