I have been playing DoD 1.0 forever, but now I want to install Steam but I lost my CD case. The CD key has got to be somewhere on my PC. I looked in the registry under HKUC/software/valve/half-life/settings/ but there's no key value there. Where is the key stored for DoD 1.0?

I don't have the DoD standalone (which I assume you have), so I don't know where it stores the key, but try doing registry searches for different things like "DoD", "Defeat", or the name of the company that publishes it (Vivendi?). Hopefully it should turn something up.

or you could just install steam. It will automatically use your key from the installed software. Then when you are done installing steam you can remove the old software.

Yeah, provided you have it installed still the data will be in the registry.
Keep in mind tho, that once this key is used by someone for Steam, the key can never be used again.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
