Some information within this article is either obsolete, hasn't been updated in a long time, incomplete, or otherwise invalid.

This error message is shown when your registry points to an invalid configuration file. Updating your registry with the correct URL should fix the problem.

One-click solution

Download this file. Double click on it and click "Yes" to the prompt that follows. Allegiance should be able to connect now.

Manual solution

You only need to do this if you choose not to use the download above. Both steps accomplish the same thing.

Hit Start -> Run and type in "REGEDIT" without the quotes. The Registry Editor will pop up.

Now, a word of warning. The registry is Windows' brain. Any mistake you commit here could mean a dead Windows install. With that out of the way,

  • Make a backup of the registry before you do anything. Select File -> Export. Set Export Range to All and save the file somewhere safe.
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Allegiance\1.0.
  • Change the CfgFile key to http://autoupdate.alleg.net/allegiance.cfg
