With the xwis version there is no wordata file so i can change serial for LAN games, however my serial is legit and i shouldn't get this issue.

How it can be fixed? and why wordata file got removed anyway? it was easy way to edit cd key.

Your serial is registered in the xwis control panel, which means that your xwis stores your game serial code NOT the actual game.
The XWIS client only uses the serial key that was used during the installation of the CD version that it was created from.

Meaning that the serial you used on the xwis game account has no association with your actual game installation.

 

If you wish to play on LAN you are required to use a modified WOLdatakey file ( which you can edit in the notepad ), to 'randomize' your serial.

(some registry keys might be required, but I haven't done full research on it yet to say for sure.)

I still didn't get it :(, how to edit the serial from the key generator to my legit serial number?

And Martin, i've already said that xwis version comes no wordata file, but in this case there is a solution:

 

 

1.) Hit Start
2.) Hit Run
3.) Type Regedit
4.) Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and click the arrow to the left of it.
5.) Find SOFTWARE and click the arrow to the left of it
6.) Find EAGAMES OR ELECTRONIC ARTS click the arrow to the left of one till you find command and conquer red alert 2 yuri's revenge.
7.) Under one or both of EAGAMES or ELECTRONIC ARTS you'll find that now click the arrow left to it and find ERGC
8.) Now to the right it should have your CD-KEY. You can now change it...Just click it twice it with popup and allow you to edit it.
9.) Once done editing hit OK then close out regedit. You should be now good to go msn_happy.gif

 

I don't want to change edit registry mostly every time we play 3v3 or 4v4 games, i need a permanent solution.

You only have to change it once, when everyone changes it and has a random 'unique' serial you can play fine over LAN. ( I know you want it for GR )
