Coh tales of valor validating media
For Company of Heroes: tales of Valor, you can sequentially patch it until 2.602.0 and then apply the no-CD/DVD exe image fix (if you have lost the original retail CD/DVD or backed-and-packed up your CD/DVD).
: This far we have already got to know about the stringent policies imposed by the publishers of this game series in terms of CD key verification incorporated with usable media verification system in order to successfully install and/or run the game.
But, the problem here is that unless you have original Co H neither you won't be able to play the missions of original Co H nor use the factions from the original game although you would be able to see the deactivated portion of Normandy mission of original Co H while playing Co H: OF.
The basic intention of making these expansion packs standalone is to promote sales by not having the buyer rely on the base pack but can simply continue playing the forward missions in the absence of base pack.
The publishers have stringently protected this game series via CD key verification as well as usable media verification system in order to ensure that ONLY legitimate owners can get access to the purchased retail CD/DVD.
However, the publishers simply left out of consideration the legitimate owners of retail CD/DVD who wanted to backup their game in image formats (. FLT, etc.) or who, in severe circumstances, lost the source media of game (CD/DVD), they won't ever be able to successfully install/run their game again for which they have really dearly paid.
The game was released by Relic Entertainment in collaboration with THQ in 2006 and later its standalone expansion pack "Opposing Fronts" was released in 2007 (abbreviated as Co H: OF) followed by second standalone expansion pack "Tales of Valor" in 2009 (abbreviated as Co H: To V).The resultant issue of "Could not verify media" will be discussed following the resolution of this issue.First, we are going to overcome the problems of manually patching the game from Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts expansion pack onwards. FLT, etc.) one more time either via virtual drive emulator or using a burnt CD/DVD and let the "Autoplay" dialog box appear and instead of doing anything else just explore the contents of the game image or CD/DVD by clicking on "Open folders to view files".Or you can simply get it checked if your system is compatible enough to accommodate this game by visiting this website As I have mentioned above the publishers have well protected this game series pretty stringently that only the owners of retail CD/DVD have the only privileges to get hands on their owned games in terms of installation/running the game on their systems.
This tight protection method of CD/DVD key verification incorporated with usable media verification system comes into effect via the patching upgrade beyond patch version of 1.71.0 to Company of Heroes Original game.Therefore, not to mention, the standalone expansion packs of this game series will already contain this effect whether or not one tries to avoid patch upgrade to them.
