    OT(-ish) cd-key question

    I was wondering wether or not it's possible to find out/change your cd-key without doing a full reïnstall.
    I'm asking this because it turns out i'm using my friend's cd-key. (I borrowed a cd from him once) This makes it rather hard to play together over bnet.

    what i know is that you cant change your cd-key without reinstalling the game.

    I used to have a program on my old comp that could change keys without reinstalling, but I dont remember where I got it, and I have reformatted since then. You could try googling for something like that, dont know if you will find it though.

    Just uninstall LOD (it autaamtically keeps your saves and other files) and re-install it with the new CD key. on my slow PC it doesnt take that long to install the game, thankfully its not a mammoth game like all the new ones which need 4gb+ storage.

    Sorry to hijack, but I'm having reinstall problems. I reinstall, and the game wont load up. It keeps asking me to 'make sure the play disc is in the drive', whether its there or not. So I uninstalled again, backed up my files, and got rid of everything d2 related. Reinstall again, same problem, both with D2C and the expansion. I've used the CD keys on the case everytime, and I have no bloody idea what's going on. Any thoughts?

    It did that to my friend a few times, I just patchted it to 1.10 and it fixed it, if you didn't already, try patching it.
    @somethingsin - you can get a cd changer/viewer that is really easy to use, just use google and search for it (I can give you the exact name when I get home if you want if its not breaking any rules)
