This issue occurs when your registry is not set up correctly. Common issues that cause this is copying/moving BF2 folders, registry cleaners, system restores, and installing different versions of PR. For copying/moving folders, you cannot just simply copy a folder to a new computer or a different location and expect it to work, there is an installer there for a reason. For installing different versions of PR, well you shouldn't be doing that and expect your previous copy to just work...

Anyway, the fix if you are absolutely certain you have PR v0.973 installed:

Instructions for modifying your registry to be showing the installed version is 0.973:
  1. If you are running a 32 bit operating system:
    1. Download the file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/33586919/pr_...estore_x86.zip
    2. Extract and run the .reg file and press yes to merge the settings with your registry
  2. If you are running a 64 bit operating system:
    1. Download the file: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/33586919/pr_...estore_x64.zip
    2. Extract and run the .reg file and press yes to merge the settings with your registry

Desura has an issue with version detection, requires manual fixing.

https://www.realitymod.com/forum/f27...r-v0-97-a.html

Your debug report says you have 32 bit windows 7, so download the 32 bit fix from above link, unzip, right click the .reg file , run as admin. And that should allow you to then install PR:Vietnam installation files you already downloaded. That will have you up and running.


All the fix does is change one key value in your registry.

Code:
[ H K E Y _ L O C A L _ M A C H I N E \ S O F T W A R E \ P r o j e c t R e a l i t y \ P r o j e c t R e a l i t y : B F 2 ] 

 " V e r s i o n " = " F u l l 0 9 7 3 "

You can do this manually if you prefer, we provide the .reg file to allow those not comfortable or familiar with registry editing to get this done quickly.
