Right... this may be in one of the stickies, but I couldn't find it with a quick glance, so am going to post it in a nice new thread. First up, I'd like to say this is not an error that I am having, but a friend of mine is. He has all the games, and has played them all on-line with no trouble. However, last week, or the week before (I forget when), but he loaded up Dark Crusade for a scheduled game, only to find that he could only select Tau or Necron. Figuring he had a problem with Dark Crusade, he uninstalled, and then reinstalled it (this happening a few days ago). Anyhow, upon the re-installation of Dark Crusade, and the running of the game, he was not asked for the DoW & WA CD keys, and still cannot play as anyone else other than the Tau (for all the good they are) or Necrons. I am confident that I read somewhere that there is an easy solve for this, somewhere within the DC Directory, but I can't find a thread about it, nor do I know what this solve is, I am just confident (almost) that I've read something about that here, in this very forum. Can anyone shed any light on the problem? And a way around it please?

U'll need both "Dow" and "WA" installed even though the cd-keys u have typed in are correct. But if the problem is that you already have them installed and they are legitimate copies, this is an area which goes beyond legal borders where I can't do much to help. Sorry :(

So Ash, when he's attempting to go back online it's not asking him for the WA and DoW keys again? Maybe he'll have to uninstall everything including the saved details that you have the option of keeping. Maybe trying Unistalling all 3 and then reinstalling and then repatching :(

See below anyway. Thanks for the reply too. :)

When he started up the game / tried to go on-line.. I forget when it asks you. Anyway, yeah, it wasn't asking him.

:lol: This he did, and it now works. Thanks for your help. :) He uninstalled & reinstalled Dark Crusade (like I said previously). Obviously you need to start right from scratch. What a bitch, eh? :lol: Cheers anyway guys. :)
