Invalid GUID / Deleted etkey

Question

Hey guys,

 

some days ago I formated my hard drive. Since that day I get kicked from any ET Server after a couple of minutes.

The error message switches between "Unknown reason", "Invalid GUID" and "Duplicate GUID". Then I recognized that I dont have an etkey in my etmain folder anymore. So I downloaded the etkey generator from your website, generated a key and put it in the etmain folder. But still i get kicked for the same reasons.

Now I saw that the etkey is already deleted again.. :D

Of course I tried it a second and a third time, but nothing changes and whenever I copy a new key in that folder it gets deleted as soon as I start ET.

Do you have any Idea whats wrong?

Btw. my laptop is running on windows 7 64bit

 

Thanks a lot

when you paste the etkey file into the etmain folder, change its properties to read-only;

How are you connecting to the servers?

Right click the file etkey, and then click properties,

and then click read only - at the bottom of the page;

 

If it doesn't work, try opening et from the wolfenstein enemy territory folder, instead of from xfire

I was have this problem, you should packup ETkey before you do something and save it in other partition on hard disk.
