Exclamation Area-51 help.

Just bought and installed the game and it will run up until the end of the intro movie and then I get an error message and it crashes.

the error message is something about "Area-51.exe" -- i b @ wrk rt nw so i do not have access to the exact error message at the moment...


anyone else run in to this problem ?

my system is 100% compliant according to the box.

the problem is i bought a copy, a retail copy with box, manual, all 3 discs & even the receipt from eb games from a guy on ebay but there is no CD-KEY anywhere to be found.

btw where is the CD-KEY located ? because i've looked everywhere in on the box, in the box, the manual & the CD-Sleeves but the CD-KEY is nowhere.

anyhow, so i went to the web and found a no-cd crack that others where claiming worked and installed it - this got me past the part where it asks for the CD-KEY, but then i get that freak'n error message.

the ebay said he will refund my money plus the cost to send it back to him...but i thought i'd try and find a way around it first since i already have the game in hand.

you can't play the game without a key. most no-cds, especially the very first crack will come with a .nfo file that you open in notepad. usually there is a list of scene-keys in there.
