let me just keep this short...i put in my cdkey wrong cuz i wasn't wearing my glasses at the time. ESO doesn't work cuz my cd key is wrong, and a reinstallation will take hours. Can someone tell me how to change the cdkey without reinstalling?

Re-install

Just about the only way, and it can't take more than 1 hour at most.

If you weren't wearing your glasses the cd-key shouldn't be accepted. By the time the setup continued it means you entered the correct cd-key.

if you go to "run" and type in "regedit"
then go to the file directory labled "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Microsoft Games/Age of Mythology/1.0"

it should be in there somewhere...not sure though

if that doesn't work (i can't say it will), just reinstall it...probably the best way anyways.

As GUNS_N_ROSES said, if you typed the cd key in wrong, then it wouldn't have installed in the first place. Which makes the whole question highly suspicious.

I don't quite see what's so hard about reinstalling even if that was true, though...?

If he read someone else's CD Key, it would still work, sinc eit was a legitimate CD Key . Could just be a problem with your connection, not CD Key... .

WhoAskedU, that doesn't work, its encrypted using who-knows-what, and I'm not sure that its even in the registry.

By accident, probably? But the chance is slim.

Do you know that to connect to ESO you need to have a modem so that you can go on the internet. LOL

A while ago someone from ES said that everyone who had a crack version (non official) of the game would not be able to conect to ESO, could this be your problem?? Probably...

Whenever someone bring up a CD key changing thread one word pops into my mind. Cheater. Just buy the game like everybody else and support ES to release a PATCH!

Headshot!! That will slow him down!

I think putting in any cd-key( 111111111111111111111) would still allow you to install and play single player. you just cant log on to eso.

wouldnt it be because he can play single player with the d key but if he copied it from someone they coulda been online when he tried to get on and it only lets one cd key on at a time

Um, no. That's the whole point of a CD Key, to prevent people from playing the game with warez copies.

Some games have a Change CD Key feature... which i think wouldn't be bad here (you tried the game from a friend using his key, you like it and buy your own, and would just have to change the CD Key to play online with him)


It was the slim chance of entering in a legit CD Key just not his
