Can't create a player profile
FYI to all Vista users -
When trying to create a profile for the first time, there is a slight chance the OS will not auto-prompt you to unblock CoDWaW.exe and CoDWaWmp.exe from the firewall block list. You will know this is the case because every time you try to create a name, it will fail, giving you the message that you need to create a name.
If your computer prompts you, obviously you want to click “Unblock”. If it doesn’t prompt you, simply go into your Control Panel and choose Windows Firewall. On the left side, click “Allow a Program Through Windows Firewall.” If the game’s exes are not already in the list you are going to have to manually Add them. Click “Add” and locate your game’s exes in the directory that you installed the game to. Don’t forget to add both the Single Player and Multiplayer exes. Save your changes and attempt to create an account again. Everything should be fine!
This may cause isolated issues with XP users as well, but has been encountered on Vista in rare cases as well.
