View Full Version : Unable to install balance playtest
7th Jun 08, 5:38 AM
When I try to install the playtest it says that it can't install because I have 2.300, and it needs 2.301. But I DO have 2.301 and am able to play online with it.
Does anybody know why it could be misidentifying my game version? And is there any way I can force it to install anyway?

Anyone have a suggestion? I really want to try the new playtest.

Hm. Go to start > run type in regedit.
Go local machine > your company of heroes folder.
What's it say for version there?

How do I see my game version there? I can only see my product keys, installstate and SKU. One thing I do notice is that I have an entry for Company of Heroes - multiplayer beta, under the THQ folder. Was that the TA beta?

I think so? Lemme get back to you.
edit: ok well you might want to look at your local machine > software > microsoft > windows > current version > uninstall > company of heroes
The display version should be 2.301.0. If it is and still doesn't work, you might want to wait for someone who's better with this kinda stuff.

It says 2.300.0 there, so that has to be my problem. Can I just edit it to 2.301.0 and try the installer again? Many thanks for helping me out!

Yes, do that. Be sure it's 2.301.0 and not just 2.301

I have this exact same problem, but when I changed the entry in regedit it now says I have an "unrecognized version".
My game is definitely updated and says 2.301.0 at the title screen.
