PostWed Mar 12, 2008 2:54 pm

The following process will allow you to reinstall CoD4 and maintain the Latest Patched version
Ok, here's what you do:

Step 1

Open 1"C:\Program Files\Activision\"

Create a folder named CoD4

In the same directory, open the Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare folder

Select everything in the folder (CTRL + A)

Copy everything (CTRL + C)

Go up a directory, you should see the CoD4 folder that you created.

Paste into that folder.

Step 2

Uninstall CoD4.

Step 3

Reinstall CoD4 with the same product key.

Step 4

Open "C:\Program Files\Activision\CoD4\"

Right Click on iw3mp.exe and select Send To > Desktop (Create Shortcut)

Go to your desktop and rename the shortcut to CoD4 1.5

Step 5

Open "C:\Program Files\Activision\CoD4\players\profiles\"

Copy your profile name (CTRL + C)

Go up 2 directories (Activision)

Open "Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\Players\Profiles\"

Paste your profile (CTRL + V)

Your profile is now available on the unpatched CoD4.

Play CoD4 1.0 or 1.5 to your hearts content.

ps. Turn off automatic updating in xfire.

1: This may not reflect your installation directory. Refer to your CoD4 shortcut if different.
