Battlefield 1942 LAN help

Hey everyone,
Not sure if any still plays it, but I'm having some trouble getting BF 1942 working over LAN.
Computer 'A' running Win7 32-bit, Computer 'B' Running WinXP SP3.
Both games fresh install from the 'Anthology' pack. (Orig game + both expansions)

When either computer trys to join a game hosted by the other, I get a message 'Data Differs From Server'
I know that is a load of bollocks seeing as they are both fresh unmodded installs.

After some Googling, I found a number of other people who had the same error message: Except in their case it was always caused by a No-CD patch.

Has anyone here got any ideas as to how to fix this?
I know its an oldie, but - IMO - it's still the 2nd best of all the Battlefield Games. (After Vietnam of course; everything after BFV is crap.)
Thanks in advance,

  1. UPDATE: A 2nd uninstall and reinstall fixed it.
    I used IObit Uninstaller 2, and it found some BF1942 related stuff in the registry.
