License key for 4.0 Upgrade

Recommended Posts

I bought a single license for CMFB 4 upgrade. ( Maybe there is a problem with bundle )

Now I see there is upgrade 4 bundle for all titles.. :(

Still downloading.  I purchased the mega-bundle, and am up-to-to date on all upgrades and patches for all WWII titles, and I have a PC, so I am downloading al the Windows options. But what's the difference between, say, "CM Normandy 4.0 Full Windows" and "CM Normandy Upgrade 4 Windows" choices (size difference is huge, 4 GB and 63 MB, respectively)?  Is the smaller download just the installer, versus the actual upgrade?

Try to find exe file "Activate New Products" in you game directory. Run it and insert your license code. This way was successful in my case CM:BN....

As I wrote above I did this for all 4 CM titles. All the same. Invalid key.

+1 to that. Also, once downloaded, where do you extract it to? I,ve tried various locations, but with no success.

And another for a Windows bundle download. Getting invalid key whenever I try to activate. :(

The same, as properly activated ?

Тоже самое как правильно активировать ?

 

UPD.

It is necessary to write in support? Or developers alone will solve the problem.

Нужно писать в службу поддержки ? Или разработчики самостоятельно решат проблему .

It looks like you can either install the patch to an existing install or you can install the game completely fresh with all the new updates applied for you. However either way you go you will likely run into the activation issue. As I said earlier I'm hoping that its just a registry bug or something like that that can be quickly fixed. Here's hoping!

In the meantime I would recommend not upgrading as you will not be able to play the CM game you attempt to upgrade.

Yeah but no install key for the other games so it's just a reinstall for people who want it, not a free game.

Unfortunately using the update blocks you out of the games you already own right now.

 

I hope you all like Fortress Italy!

Thanks for the feedback everyone.  We are investigating now and will get this fixed as soon as we can.  Thanks for your patience!

Hello, Charles, it's nice to see you again (waves). Hope you have a merry Christmas in spite of this new work cropping up. A programmer's work is never done, eh?

:)

Hi all,

OK, several different things.  The easiest one to fix is CMRT....

The move to the new unified system started a while ago.  CMBN was moved over, CMBS and CMFB started their lives with it and know nothing else.  CMRT was migrated last night. 

Enter in your original CMRT license key.  That should do the trick.

I did it with CMRT. Original key accepted but on the Main Menu I get a Red Box with Base game 4.0 written in it and then CM terminates.

4.0 Key still not accepted.

Does not work for me either. I put in the key from the bundle upgrade and get told invalid key, put in the key from the original purchase, says success!! but when I try to run the game I get the big red box of unhappiness.

Im just confused if anything, brought the bundle and there's "full" and the upgrade to 4, was the bundle including the full games as well as the upgrades? 

The full will allow you to install the whole thing from scratch on a clean machine or in a clean directory.

The smaller one is for installing over top of an existing fully patched game.

PS while the licensing issues are addressed you can install your older game to a separate directory and keep playing.

PPS oops sorry you guys are finding licensing problems. For whatever reason during testing these issues didn't come up. Bummer wish we would have hit them ourselves before you saw them.
