Re: Can't use CryEngine 3 on XP anymore

Provided that it would be advisable to use a PC with a modern operating system and current version of the SDK, you can still run the FreeSDK by adding some information on your Windows Registry.

1) Right click on your Desktop and create an empty text file
2) Change the extension to .reg
3) Right click on it and select Edit
4) Input any made-up username and password. It doesn't matter what, as the login servers for that version are no longer online anyway. Example below

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crytek\Sandbox 3.5\CryDevLogin] "User"=hex:66,66,66,66,66,66 "Password"=hex:70,70,70,70,70,71,72,73 "UserId"=dword:00000001
5) Save the file and double click on it
6) You will be asked if you want to merge the registry's information: just say "Yes"

As noted above the SDK will probably not work on Windows XP, so 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 should be used instead.
