Asked By 7060 points N/A Posted on -

I have my own Server.

When a player joins my server to play Call of Duty, he gets the following message.

Impure client detected. Invalid .IWD file referenced! F:Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfaremainjw_06.iwd.

I have tried to reinstall server but still no joy.

Can anyone help me regarding the above problem Please?

How can i recover .IWD file for Call of Duty?


The error is due to a mgfix patch. The mgfix iwd file downloads and automatically placed in your promodlive mode folder that will not allow you to use the mg console command when you are in the server. It can't be remove and will not allow you from loading maps when you do a map change so you need to remove it permanently. Follow the steps below:

1. Click Start and go to All Programs. Select Accessories and click on Notepad.

2. Copy and then paste the code below on your Notepad.

del "C:Program FilesActivisionCall of Duty 4 – Modern WarfareModspromodlivepromodlive_mgfix.iwd"

This is the default directory for installing the COD4. Just change it to where you place the COD4 installation and then put the following location at the end of prmodlivepromodlive_mgfix.iwd.

3. Click File and then Save As. Save it on your Desktop as fixmgpromodlive.bat. And select All Files below Save As and then hit the Save button. Once you double-click on that batch file stored in your Desktop, it will delete the mgfix on your program files. And another thing is to right-click on the .bat file and select Copy. Click Start and then All Programs and double-click on Startup and paste the code there so it will automatically runs when starting Windows and will remove the .iwd when starting up.

This will fix the problem. But if you still continue receiving the same error, it could be a problem with the copy of promodlive you have.
