We had several reports about players getting CD Key Expired, or Invalid CD keys message from the updater last night and this morning. We`ve been investigating for several hours now, and can`t find any problems. It looks like the issue was indeed resolved last night automatically.
If you have been effected by this issue - could you please reply here or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
to confirm this issue has been resolved. And if you still can`t get into the game, we found this solution:
1) Go to your user directory (C:\Users\Your User Name Here) with 'Show Hidden Files and Folders' enabled (see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tuto...es-in-windows/
for details if you don`t know how), the folder AppData should appear.
2) Navigate from your user directory to AppData, and then to Local. For more instruction, see:

3) There should be a folder named DoFUpdater there, delete it.
4) Now start the updater, and re-enter your CD key
Thank you for your help, and understanding!
