Hello there.
I've got some really bad problems with Ghost Recon and the CD checks. Yesterday I played it well the whole day but today the original is not accepted. Every time I just get the message that I should insert the original disc. How funny!
I've already installed the newest patch 1.4 for the german version of the game but it still won't start. Is this a known problem for all international versions or does it just happen on the german one?
I've got absolutely no idea what to do and the german support boards are empty and I won't get any support there so I hope someone here can help me.
Again: I dont't use any kind of cracks or so something like that and own the german version of the game.

My system is an XP+2400, Epox 8kha+, 512mb ddr, Radeon 8500, sound blaster audigy and for alle components the newest drivers. But I don't think it is an incompatability with the hardware because yesterday it just ran fine.

Thanks for help and sorry for my bad English. ;-)

What version of the game do you have? The one that is sold separately and some of the expansion packs or the gold version that comes bundled with the expansions? Or did it come with an MSI video card?

Second, what type of CD drive do you use? A regular cd/dvd drive or a cd-rw one? CD burners have troubles sometimes because of the game's copy protection.

We'll get you up and running, don't worry.

To eisenkeil,

Was this a bundle with a MSI GForce card? If so follow the below/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

<font color="#00FF00">MSI Bundled Fix</font>

If you have the Ghost Recon that was bundled with an MSI Technologies Video Card, then what you should try is this:
1) Uninstall the game.
2) Go here http://test.support.ubi.com/MSI_GR_Fix.zip and download the fix.
3) Go here http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and download the latest Nvidia Graphics Drivers WHQL certified.
4) Uninstall your current video drivers.
5) Install the new nvidia drivers.
6) After reboot, install Ghost Recon.
7) Patch game to 1.3.
8) Patch game to 1.4.
9) Copy fix into game folder and overwrite.(if it does not ask you to overwrite, you are in the wrong directory)
10) See if the game runs.


<font color="#00FF00">GR Uninstall</font>

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders

1-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/red storm entertainment

2-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/UBI.com

To start from scratch uninstall all of GR and UBI and at your own risk do this but first back it up.

(1) start/run and type this: regedit and press ok

Up the top click file/export and on the pop up window down the bottom where it says (save as type) click the drop down arrow and click on ALL FILES. Then select your location and save.

repeat step (1)

1- hkey_current_user/software look for any red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft folders

now do this:

2- hkey_local_machine/software look for red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft and UBI soft entertainment folders and delete

now do this:

3- hkey_LocalMachine/ software/ Microsoft/ windows/ current version/ uninstall directory there should be a folder here named "{D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787}" with some Ghost Recon info in it so delete only the ghost recon related info.
