This should not be happening if you install the latest version of the game. The latest version (BfME 1 v1.06, BfME 2 v1.09 and RotWK v2.02) has a no-cd patch and does not require a disk to be insterted while playing the game.

Hey man, I followed the new PDF you made a few pages ago. Did all the needed installs, mounted the installation etc, it shows as a mounted DVD drive as well. But whenever I try to start it it keeps giving the no-cd or no-dvd error.

 

FYI this happens with all the patches, 1.00, 1.06, 1.09. I have tried them all, did a reinstall like 5 times already but I can't seem to locate the mistake.

By the way, the front page installation guide has been updated. The pdf posted was a draft for it.

Thanks for the update on the original post.  Just clarifying, patch v1.09 for BFME2 does not contain a no-cd fix, right?  I thought I was doing something wrong, until I noticed the edit today.  I was able to get it running by the other means.

so i downloaded the file for BFME2 but when i try to start the autorun.exe, the installer crashes and tells me it cannot find the following file: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\Power2Go\AutoRunGUI.DLL".
the thing is when i extract the autorun and the autorungui.dll it starts the process but immediatly demands a cd, which makes sense, since it's not via the virtual drive

It isn't provided by the v1.09 installer, but it is provided by the v1.09 team.

I don't know what this issue could be. My best guess is that it is an issue with your computer. Is the autorun.exe trying to run with a special Lenovo autorun program or feature?

i just hit that .exe with a normal double click, otherwise theres nothing that i know of, i never had anything like that, allthough i don't use virtual drives normally, so maybe it's connected to that

It's exactly the same with the rotwk one, so it's not like the gui.dll file got corrupted during the download

hey guys, thanks for the thread,

 

having an issue with managing to get the game to run, currently getting the error insert cd rom when i start the game launcher.

 

as far as i can see i am doing everything in the guide in order.

 

the only problem i can think of is the part with the- 

• To play BfME 2 without a disk use this game.dat file.

 

i download and open the file, seems just to be a file that will play images on a media player

 

any help would be appreciated

hey i had the same issue when trying this, what you need to do is go into your "my files" on the computer and run the disc file 

 

then go into the file and select autorun

thx for the response, I don't really know what you mean by "my files" since my pc is not set up in english, i assume you mean that i should start the "tBfMe_II.iso" via a different datapath/copy the ".iso" into another directory?
right now i have the .iso in a folder within the program files(x86) on my D:\ drive
