Fix Please install multiplayer error message in Modern Warfare?
Well before we jump into fixing the issue, it is better to understand the root cause of the issue. And it turns out that this error is creeping up in the COD Modern Warfare because you haven’t installed all the data packs of the game. Noticeably, we have also reported earlier that the recent update comes with two-phase downloads, meaning that one will be downloaded automatically while for the other patch, you need to trigger it manually.
The “please install multiplayer” error is surfacing after the recent update, because you have not installed the Data Pack 1, which you are required to download additionally. So, the solution to this error is to go ahead and download the second part of the update i.e. the Data Pack 1, which is rather hefty, but you need to download it in order to be able to play the game. Once the update is downloaded you need to restart the game in order for the update to take effect.
