Can't activate the game ><

Recommended Posts

This is infuriating. I've spent so much money on this game and its modules and yet now that I try to install it on a new computer it simply does not activate properly. In fact the whole shenanigans seems needlessly confounded. Where is my one download all patched up to date? I have like 7 modules all with different keys and the only one that works is the 2.0 update. Even the vanilla install says it can't launch. So I install module 2.0 and it works, great. But then I want the rest of the market garden and other packs and engine upgrades... after this it simply gets so confounded and none of my codes work and the game can't launch. It reminds me of the old days when we all pirated stuff because the DRM was driving us nuts. Just put your game on Steam and optimize the patching system so people like me can play the game again. Please. It's a good game. Please fix or do somfink!!

Ah but we are all up and running happily. Sure a handful of people have run into trouble but all this stuff is fixable. I recommend contacting support, they are very good at giving you good instructions.

Do you own the 4.0 Upgrade ? If so, then download the 'CM Normandy 4.00 Full Windows' file (4GB). This installer will have everything except the latest Battle Pack (I believe) for CMBN. With this installed you will not need to download anything else (for CMBN) other than the Battle Pack (if you've purchased that). You will need to reactivate ALL of the modules and possibly (not sure) the 3.0 Upgrade license key and/or the original 1.0 license key utilizing the 'Activate New Products' shortcut that should hopefully get installed to your desktop or may be in your main game directory.

Well crap, now I'm ten more dollars in the hole and it still just gives me a little 'x' when I go to activate it. The all in one installer was nice but no matter which of my codes I enter (started with the module 4 code) it just doesn't work.

Hey Bump...after installing the CMBN 4.0 Full Installer go ahead and activate 3.0 first (nothing earlier), then each of the Modules (using the Activate Modules Icon), then finally 4.0...Hope this works. 

Basically, the Activation Window will pop-up and any modules and game upgrades will show-up in Green (successfully activated).

I haven't played this since Jan 2015 and I have a new pc so figured I would install Normandy on it - it was installed on my other pc.  I am reading here the same type of thread I would read over 18 months ago - I'm sitting here waiting on another thread I just made to get answered scared to do anything on my new pc because I may screw something up. I own Normandy the Normandy 2 upgrade and I downloaded a 2.01 patch. I saved my z folder stuff from way back when.
