COD4 Question.

  Rigga 19:24 26 Jan 2010

I have played COD4 multi-player for some time, but now find fewer and fewer servers. I have tried game tracker lite, which has lots of servers, but when I connect I am told incorrect version!, server has 1.7.

I have applied all patches to COD4 including 1.7.

However I notice on start-up the version number down the bottom right starts 1.5.something.. which doesn't seem right.

Can anyone else confirm they get 1.7.something when they have 1.7 patch installed?

Thanks. R.

P.S. I'm currently doing a full re-install of COD4 see if that helps.

Well I've reinstalled to a different drive and I've managed to get it to show as 1.6 installed, however I still have a problem installing 1.7.

When I run the 1.7 Patch installer, it says 1.7 is already installed and do I want to un-install it, I say yes, then it says it cannot find the .msi file to un-install.

All very strange.!

If anyone can find any destructions (instructions?) to manually change the registry so that I can install patch 1.7 it would be most appreciated.

I've tried CCleaner, and RegCleaner to no avail.

Well I finally resorted to manually searching and editing the registry.

I manually removed all entries that mentioned the 1.7 patch. and it has now successfully installed itself.

There are now a lot more servers to play on. :)
