CD-Key in use

What to do if your CD Key is in use

Why do i get this Error?

1. Someone is using your CD-Key.
Don't share your CD Key with anyone, you won't be able to play at the same time.

2. CoD Masterserver missed your disconnect and thinks you're still online with that CD Key
If you had a connection timeout or anything similar you are still logged in with your CD Key on masterserver, so if you attemp to join a gameserver it will check your CD Key and finds a entry that someone is playing with it already and will deny your connect.
The masterserver will automaticly kick this timed out connection after 5-10 minutes.
After that you should be able to connect again, otherwise someone uses your CD Key.

It's because our servers are not cracked at the moment.
The wait 10 Minutes solution only works with valid keys, the issue is that the keys are stored temporarly on the masterserver

Dude its goddamn simple..... Go to and look for COD1 1.1 or 1.5 Private Server Crack. I found this crack for GameRanger for the community In pakistan and now everyone can happily play in my server without CD key Error...
