View Full Version : Operation Failed

I searched the forums for this and after trying everything suggested, it's still no joy for online play. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, patched in succession, and have tried patching directly to 1.04. I've forwarded the necessary ports and nothing works. The only thing I haven't tried (but will try ASAP) is plugging it in directly to the modem...

Is there any more progress from anyone else on this problem? I'm running out of ideas.

Edit: Well I tried plugging directly into the modem, but it still says "Operation Failed."

Edit 2: I solved my problem. After uninstalling I cleaned out the registry of all Vegas stuff. I reinstalled and patched up and it's fine now.

I'm not good at explaining things, but the registry is where all programs are "registered" with your computer so that it knows it's installed and whatnot. Make sure to uninstall the game first.

To get to the registry you must go to Start>Run>type in "regedit" without the quotes>click OK.

The registry window should pop up and there should be "My Computer" and some "HKEY_" folders in the left pane of the window.

Click on "My Computer" and then press Ctrl+F on the keyboard to bring up the "Find" window. Type in "Rainbow Six Vegas" without the quotes and click "Find next" and the search will look for files in the registry with "Rainbow Six Vegas" in the name.

When it does find a file in the registry, make sure it's one that has to do with the game. Of all the files I found, they were remnants of the R6Vegas_Game.exe and R6Vegas_Launcher.exe (I found SEVERAL of both in the registry).

Right click on the file and click "delete." You can find where the file is/was located by looking under the "Data" tab. Then press F3 on the keyboard to search for the next file (it's a shortcut compared to having to use Ctrl+F every time). Once you have searched through the whole registry, a message will pop up saying "Finished searching the registry" or something similar.

You should have deleted all the files found by now, but you can do one more sweep if you want to. Just be sure to click on "My Computer" on the left pane before you start your search again. This is so that the search will start from the beginning of the registry.

I hope this helps. If you've got any more questions, just ask.

Just a reminder... Playing with the REGISTRY is like playing with the BIOS, one wrong move and ADIOS PC... make sure you are deleting the correct thing before you hit the key or you'll regreat it.

Now, being said that, it is not that hard... you just got to be very patient with it.

Not exactly, you can wipe out your registry and still recover if you backed it up, or you could just reinstall windows.

If you destroy your bios well you will be getting a new motherboard. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I will give you that I wasn't completely thourough in my last reply but I just wanted to give him a warning. It appears though, as you only wanted to put me down but you weren't as thourough as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Now, we can go on and on to see who knows more about computers but, ask yourself this question: Are we helping the OP with our debates? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

I was not trying to put you down at all, simply pointing out that they are two very different types of code.

Sensitive today are we?

Yes you can fix a "corrupt" bios with a simple flash, but if you destroy your bios which i have done, there is no fix for this.

You can always fix your registry with a fresh install of windows.

These arent debatable facts, so i was not trying to prove anything or argue there is nothing to argue over.

The OP fixed his problem, so he doesnt need any more help. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sleepzzz.gif

Case in point, I recently destroyed my bios on my evga 680i. There was no fixing it, reflashing did not work. Basically 250 down the drain.

I admit that its very rare but it does happen. Ive been overclocking and volt modding for a long time and have only ever destroyed two bios. So its rare, but it does happen.

Thanks for the reminder to back up the registry.

Could one of you explain how to do it? I've pretty much forgetten so I won't be much help.

I dont want to type it all out.

Im not possitive but im pretty sure the Free Version of Registry Mechanic would remove those old remenants from an uninstall. I havent checked it out though.

Now that i think about it, the free version probably will only "find" the remenants.

1) Click: Start &gt; Run &gt;

type 'regedit' (not quotes) hit enter

2) Make sure 'My Computer' is highlighted/selected.

3) Click: File &gt; Export &gt;

Choose a location for your backup file. For example, if you want to place it on the C:\ drive click on the drop down menu towards the top of the window and select your C:\ drive.

4) Give the file a name like 'reg-bak' and click the 'Save' button.

A copy of your registry will be exported to your C:\ drive.


Backing up your registry is a very important step to take BEFORE you change settings in it.

Registry Mechanic will also automatically back up your registry for you. If you are too nervous about doing it manually.

Yes, there is a proggy called "TuneUp Utilities 2007" that will clean and optimze your registry (along with other things on your PC) with a click of a button and you don't have to do anything but Uninstall the game yourself.

I had Registry mechanics and there were times where it wouldn't get rid of the renmants of the game in the registry... it hasn't happened yet with T/U2007.

There could be any number of solutions. This is just one of them. Read through this thread if you'd like to try this one (cleaning out the registry). Also, it may help if you tell us which operating system you're using. I've got no experience in Vista whatsoever, so one of the other guys may have to help you.
