I tried to install the new patch for coh but the installation stoped half way through so now my coh doesnt work. I cant re-install the game because I cant find my case with the cd-key. What do you guys think that I should do: Buy COH, buy COH:OF or both? If I buy OF can I still play single players skrims or multiplayer games with the old germany and US? Thank you.

I suspect you are screwed into buying CoH again and remembering where your CD keys are stashed for the rest of your life. THEN go buy OF because it's a very good expansion.

OF is good, but don't get it yet if you strictly into online play. The whole online thing is screwed at the moment. Bad connectivity to Relic Online, bad connectivity in games & getting randomly dropped, online stats now working, unusual extreme lag in game of 2v2 or 3v3 and higher, etc. etc. Sure they'll fix it eventually, and the Singleplayer campaigns and skirmish will keep you busy for a while, but the AI is even worse now (even one Expert) except for the odd game (like 1 in 20) where it'll give you a run for your money.

If you "loose" your cd key you can go to start/run/regedit and under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - SOFTWARE - THQ - COH it will tell you both cdkeys if you have reg and OF installed.

Thank you for the advice guys. Also, thank you AirAssault101. I tried what you said but the only file that I found is a default reg_sz file. Is that where it should be? Is there any other palce I can look for the cd key? Maybe in my installation file?

What happened to you might have been the same thing that happended to me. COH magically vanished, registry entries and all (savegames still there tho...). I had to do a complete reinstall. If you uninstalled it manualy the keys would probably have been erased from registry also. The registry is the only place the cd keys are located. They wouldnt put sensitive information like that where people go poking around with mods and stuff. Not many people know how to get that way so its hidden.
