Key code in use? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
this happened to me yesturday ....i thought someone had taken or generated my code i tried endless servers and got this message.....
''your keycode is currently in use please try again later''
so i powered down left it for 3 hours tried again & its working fine
i know its not much help ..but it may not be foul play just a system problem.

good luck...

I got frustrated so I powered down the system to go play some tennis. When I got back it was working flawlessly and I havent had the problem ever since.

Yeah I think what happens is that even though you aren't connected anymore their servers still think that you are. So its saying that your cd key is in use untill the server fully logs you out. Its annoying but it happens sometimes if you don't properly log out of certain game servers.

yes, its just the main CoD4 server thinking you're still in a game if you got d/c'ed during it..just wait, it will eventaully time out.
