Hello there,

The link in the blog goes to Fileplanet - http://www.fileplanet.com/217370/downlo ... ee-Game%29 - this link is still working and you can use it normally for downloading the game, as for the CD-KEY you don't really need one to install or play the game.

cheers!

The fileplanet link is the way to go. If that doesn't work you can also get it on GOG but you have to buy it.

I should also mention that, with the game being freeware, you could "legally" torrent it. You would be lucky if you managed to find a live torrent though.

I would give my CD key, but I don't have the box with me. Just did a search of the registry, I found a key titled 'CDKey', though the value was empty.

EDIT: I just ran through the reinstall process; although it tells you you need to get a Fileplanet code (and login, etc), you simply ignore it and click next. Does this work for you?

I just get "Class not recognized" and then it says "External Error" before closing the installation app

It may be related to your browser somewhat, I personally needed to change my default browser to Firefox to get through CD key part.

Also I am a bit confused where/how exactly you get stuck though, screenshots of situation before and after error appears would make it a lot easier to understand.

See if you can't get ventrilo set up in time for tomorrow's games, and one of us (probably myself as I idle on vent early) can help walk you through a solution!

PS: I just checked installer activity, the installer doesn't attempt to connect to anything directly itself, it simply launches a webpage in the default browser (potentially passing arguments with the POST method). It is very probably worth checking out Sarve's suggestion of changing the default browser.

PPS:
I couldn't help digging a bit deeper. It turns out windows 8 breaks a great many things, and an extremely common programming one-liner to launch a web page is one of them (this method is almost certainly how the installer launches a web page). Read more here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1220 ... s/12248929

This is why I see no errors, I am win7. Switch your default browser to internet explorer (simply launching it should give you a prompt to 'set IE as default'), run the installer, then switch back to whatever browser you had before.

Then promptly uninstall internet explorer; using it is the fastest way to discover new in-the-wild exploits.
