It seems that I cannot connect to 4 out of 5 servers because it says the servers i not receiving the CD key! Anyone know why this is? I own RTCW but ET never asked for a CD Key and I don't know where I would put one? Any thoughts?:uhoh:

try this when u get it...

Players who are getting "Empty CDKey" messages trying to connect to PunkBuster ET Servers may attempt a manual CDKey registration. Press the tilde key (the ~ key) to bring down the game console from any game screen and enter the following command (without quotes): "/pb_cdkeyreg". You should see a message stating that a Registration Request was sent to the GuidAuth Master Server. After a few seconds (perhaps up to 30 seconds) you should see a message stating that the CDKey Registration was successful. After that, there should be no more messages about an Empty CDKey when trying to join a PB Server. Players having problems with this procedure (or any PB-related problems in ET) should email [email]support@evenbalance.com[/email] and describe in as much detail as possible the problem encountered.

Myself and at least two other people I know are getting the Invalid CD Key message as well. I have downloaded the game twice now from two different locations and reinstalled and that does not fix the problem. Any help on this would be appreciated since I have also emailed staff at PB and I have not recieved any help from them either.
