Error loading DCS
Just started to get this error now when I try to start DCS, I have purchased all the DLC and they were all working great. Then (might be my problem) I tried the Flaming cliffs key I got from my purchase on the DCS store and I started to get this error "Failed to contact key server". Flaming cliffs worked in the stand-alone version of DCS but I have uninstalled that version. I know Flaming Cliffs was not susposed to work in the US version of Steam, but it accepted my key code.

Thanks for any help.

I have uninstalled the steam version and reinstalled but still nothing.

Not sure Tom, and I'll look properly tomorrow, but worth a look using regedit in terms of registry entries left behind. They live down from here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Eagle Dynamics

You may be able to rename the FC3 entry manually, but obviously be careful if you're not comfortable using regedit.exe

I'll wait until you look into it properly tomorrow, I reinstalled the stand alone version and everything seems to work fine now with that.

In what way did you activate the key Tom? Did you use the Steam menu 'Games / Activate a product..' and it worked?. I'm having trouble recreating, but if you did it like that then it might mean a Steam support ticket..

Yes, I used the Steam menu 'Games / Activate a product..' and it activated.
