    I recently wanted to hook me and my brother up on LAN to play UT 2004, but I didn't have the discs on hand. My only way to get him my copy was to put out extra hdd into my pc, and copy the UT04 directory onto the drive. I figured I would probably get a few problems getting it to run on his pc, so now is when I need a little help.

    I put the hdd into his computer, and when I run the .exe file to launch unreal, I get an error saying "Appears to be an invalid cd key, please reinstall"(or somthing along those lines). As I said, I don't have my discs on hand at the moment. So, any suggestions to fix this? Maby a file that needs to be placed into the registry?

    UT2004 needs to be installed manually or you will get that error. Only fix for it is, install it with CD/DVD's.

    The CD Key is stored in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\UT2004

    Not sure if putting that in will work though. There might be other files/reg entries needed.
    You will probably have to install it correctly

    Paste into a new .reg file:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Unreal Technology\Installed Apps\UT2004]
    "Folder"="D:\\UT2004"
    "Version"="3369"
    "CDKey"="YOUR-CDKEY-GOES-HERE"
    "ADMIN_RIGHTS"="You need to run this program as an administrator, not as a guest or limited user account."
    "NO_DISC"="No disc in drive.  Please insert the disc labeled 'Unreal Tournament 2004 Play Disc' to continue."
    "NO_DRIVE"="No CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive detected."
    "TITLEBAR"="Unreal Tournament 2004"
    "WRONG_DISC"="Wrong disc in drive.  Please insert the disc labeled 'Unreal Tournament 2004 Play Disc' to continue."
    "YEAR"="2004"
