Ok I have this problem. I bought UT2004 when it first came out and as of now i just got a new pc. Before i did anything I did my own "Hunt for Red October" and I can't find the cd key. So i just deleted the game folder hoping to find it in windows somewhere. but i cant. Bolth of the pc's are running windows XP home editon. I need this in "lame mans terms also" where the folder and what the file is called. In the future thanks.
Unfortunately, I have no idea of how you can recover a cd key from a windows file. There may be ways of doing so, but I have never heard of doing something like that much less actually finding a file where the cd key is stored. Unless you can find your instruction manual or whatever your key was on, there is not much you can do, though there may be a thread here about changing cd keys but not with cd key generators since these are consider warez and cannot be discussed here. I also cannot give you a CD key for the same reason (it's all in the FAQ). I'll link you to that thread, but if you cannot find your cd key, your options are limited. Sorry that I could not help you much in this matter. EDIT: Here is the link to that thread. Please use this only if you cannot find your original CD key. http://forums.filefront.com/showthread.php?t=193334 I hope that this helps.

If ye didnae uninstall it properly from yer old pc then there be hope fer ye yet! Killer Kyle's linkage of info should help ye perfectly. It's also good if ye have just copied over yer old UT2004 foldar to yer new pc, if ye be feelin lucky, ye kin jest go in RegEdit the way bein' outlined in that thar thread, and be right clicking on the UT2004 folder icon and select export key or thar be words teh that effect, and then save it to disk or whatnot. Then ye kin jest run the .reg file on the new pc and be very quickly set to play. Enjoy! BTW.. Jest in case ye be overly lazy such ways that I myself be, here's the instructions from that thar other thread. -
