When I launch the client, Install button is gray

To install the client, you need to have the game installed in first place as the client doesn't provide game binaries.

First of all, check whether you are running correct game version, you can do so by looking into bottom right corner, there should be some number like 1.1.5767 or 1.1.6115 or 1.1.6156. The required version to use CryMP client is 6156.
If your game version is 6156 and you still see GameSpy log-in screen, make sure you are launching the game using shortcut generated on the Desktop by installer.
If you don't have any shortcuts on your Desktop, just run installer once again or launch the game with -mod sfwcl argument

I can't see my server on the website!
