Thread: Get CD Key from Steam -- this works!!

  1. #1

    Smile Get CD Key from Steam -- this works!!

    I bought this game from Steam, but getting the CD key was a trial. I did a search on this forum (itself something of a mess -- you need to use google) but didn't come up with much that was helpful. Maybe if I searched further I'd have turned up an answer.

    I wrote Steam, and about three weeks later (really!) they responded with the following....
    ---------------------------------------

    Hello
    Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

    NOTE: If you are running in Windows Vista, you will need to ensure you are running Steam as Administrator. To do this, completely exit Steam, and right-click on the shortcut which you use to launch Steam and select "Run as Administrator."

    Please verify the GCF for this game:
    Title: Verifying Game Cache Files (GCF)
    Link: http://support.steampowered.com/kb_a...2037-QEUH-3335

    Once this process is complete, please right-click on the game in your "My Games" tab and select 'View Game CD Key'.

    If you have any further difficulty, please let us know.

    Anytime you wish you can view your question online:

    -------------------------------------------------
    This works, and I received a game key that I could use on the "my games" page, and I've been able to access the FAQ and game guide.

    I took a fair amount of grief for not finding out how to do this by searching the forum. All I found was a lot of people, like me, that couldn't get a game key. You might want to sticky this. Even if I'm a provable idiot, the number of people in my situation was large.

    How about the VV key?

    for the VV key, look for a dummy entry "Europa Universalis Rome: Vae Victis" into the "My games" list. Install it and then you can view the VV key by just right clicking this entry and selecting "View Game CD Key"

    You seem to be in the wrong thread, as the option you refer to is not mentioned in the other posts here and has nothing to do with getting Steam registration codes. Can you start your own fresh thread with full details? Thanks
    Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death .... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man. Bertrand Russell

    Put the code in: "Europa Universalis: Rome" (the one below "Rome Gold")
    To err is human, to arr is pirate.
    If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.
    Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you.
    Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy someone else to shoot at.
