Mig 21 asking for serial again, after small update today

Post by (B/229) NeF on Sat 20 Sep 2014 - 20:31

Hi guys, got a problem with DCS after a small update this morning. I have The Mig installed since day one. But today when trying to launch a training I always ended up in external view and never in the plane. Same in instant action. A quick look in module manager and  the mig was AVAILABLE modules with the action to install it. I decided to do a repair. After repair the mig was back into the installed modules. I went to mission editor and there I found the mig (highlighted in yellow) and I set it to player. I start the mission and now the game asks me for my DCS-MIG21 key AGAIN... I already activated it once I dont understand what's going on here and I'm not so keen to sacrifice my activations like that.
Any ideas folks?

I have to add that I changed my GPU and maybe erased some AMD pilots at some point.

Activations should be stored in the registry and a change of GPU shouldn't be enough to trigger s re-activation, but it could...

This update of 1.2.10 has had a lot of issues, and this may be one of them. Given that you should still have 9 left, using one more should fix it. Personally, that's what I'd do

Copy that Highway. One possible explaination is that I switched from an AMD GPU to a Nvidia. While uninstalling the drivers of my AMD I screwed something up and got BSOD. Maybe I uninstaled something related to my mobo..(selected to remove all amd components in catalyst install manager) After that I couldn't get to desktop and got BSOD every time. A repair on startup fixed the problem tho.

In that case, it certainly sounds like you stuffed up something in the registry and the repair restored it to an earlier state, one prior to you activating your MiG-21 key...
