The problem comes in if windows is shut down improperly after an install. Let's say you install bfv, and then you play all day without restarting your computer. A few hours later someone pulls the plug on your comp or you have to reset your machine manually for whatever reason. When the computer boots up you have lost all of your installation settings for the prior bfv install thus deleting the data for your cd key and several other important installation information. You can prevent this from happening if you install bfv and then perform a normal restart routine thru the start menu. That way if you do get shut off for whatever reason, your settings will remain intact. The bfv installation should request you to restart your computer, but it doesn't. oh and to fix the problem, just simply reinstall battlfield, but remember to restart after you reinstall.
