First - If GR supports this, why isn't it pinned?

Second - Windows8 is a bitch. My game isn't working on it and one of the errors I've been getting is the no cd one, even though I have the cd and installed the game using it. BfME2 works fine on here though, but I can't even download patches for RotWK. I could download them manually, but I still wouldn't be able to play anyway. The farthest I've gotten is installing the game.

Third - When I try using this no cd fix, it opens folder to view files instead of running what would be the disk. I can see the files on it and everything looks in order to me, but it won't run... It won't work to use autorun on it or anything either, it says all I can do is open folder to view files. I'm guessing it's a dumb win8 problem? I guess I just won't play it on this PC, unless I get a fix or someone can tell me how to get this to work properly.

First:these first second third paragraphs are annoying...
Second:This no cd is only for Rotwk,you mount the image file,"view files" pops up and you have to click the game shortcut for the game to begin,aslo try tunning in windows xp compatibility mode if you're having problems with windows 8...

problem solved, I had installed the wrong RotWK patch and it fucked my game.

The real question is: why hasn't it been removed yet?

Anyway, cheers.

Hello, I have actually question regarding this noCD images.

I use original cd-key for both BFME 2 and Rise of the Witch King, but I don't have DVD of either of the games anymore and had to use other way to install the game, but even with this noCD I cannot play the game because of the Anti-Piracy system... Does anyone know the way how to fix it definetly so I could be able to play on multiplayer? Either here or by private message.

And if People won't believe that I have legal copy I can just make photos of them with this topic in background *sigh*

find the original .exe file and replace the cracked one with the original...Then start with noCd.
(you can find the original .exe in a torrent or sth or on your dvd.)

Sorry for bumping this but why was this removed? eyebrow.gif I think it was extremely helpful as it was actually the only easy way to let some players play the game again. I have guys asking on Youtube how they could play and I can't link them here now.

I myself don't remember the steps...

It seems it was removed completely, then. I can't find it in senior-friendly areas. Whoever did this is an oblivious asshole, I'll tell him this much.

As decided I'll spent some time to test and remake this guide. It may take some time but if someone is in a hurry, please send me pm.

What is the cmd file supposed to do?

Its content doesn't make any sense and upon execution it just shows an error message.

This advice makes no sense at all.

Take a look into the file. There isn't any executable command.

As far as I remember, it's not necessary to run the cmd file. The creator of the files told me to do it but I don't remember for which reason.

[...Also the lotr2.02.cmd is pretty much useless now.The script was useful in the old days when daemon tools didn't support double clicking the image to open it....]

Well it has the string ".exe" 2 times in it...it must execute something biggrin.gif

source:I wrote the script.
p.s.Hi guys!
