Default [Win 7] [Solved] copied BF2 folder to other comp - unstable & texture issues

Hello all,

I copied my whole BF2 folder (incl. installed PR) to my laptop. Also coped registry entries.
everything works but...

1. game seems to be a bit more unstable than on computer where installed normal way.
(started BF2 vanilla first to let BF2 write default profile, then PR)

2. some textures are not displayed - objects appear black (mostly supply crate textures)

Is there anything I missed to do for copying the whole thing?

Objects appearing black sounds like you should clear the bf2 shader cache.

If you've changed your settings several times, I recommend you finalize your changes, close BF2, go to the above directory and delete everything under the \cache\ directory. The next time you start the game and play single or multiplayer, your shaders will be optimized again. Close BF2 one more time, defragment your hard drive, and now things should be much smoother and load much faster the next time you go to play BF2.
