Installation Notes:


Q.   What is the correct procedure for installing the base game and any additional expansions? 

A. Activate the main product CD-Key first followed by any expansion CD-keys thereafter (the expansions

will be automatically installed).

Once activated and assigned to your STEAM account you will not be required to enter your product CD-Keys again for example future installations. The expansions will be automatically installed and uninstalled along with the main game.


Q.   Should CoH be uninstalled before the Steam version is installed?

A. This is not required as the STEAM version is labeled differently.
