Hi there,

If your sure you entered it correctly, then the only thing to do is take them up on the offer of a new CD Key.

Hi there,

The original Ubisoft Activation could sometimes not accept the keys (although it is valid)

Download this Ubisoft Launcher will solve this.

[\edit: unofficial download link removed]

I personally would not trust any software that ask's for a CD Key - that is not hosted on the official Ubisoft site...


There were a few problems with CD Keys at launch, however that was corrected server side - you did not need a 'fixed' launcher..

You enter your CD Key at your own risk..

if the key is reporting invalid - there's nothing you can do.. apart from wait for a new key..


I suggest you do a full virus scan, if you have installed that fixed launcher - just in case..

Please only enter your cd key in the official launcher - else you run the risk of it being stolen.

Ok well,

Sorry for my misunderstanding about legitimate downloads at first.

I had this problem once, my game installer which is downloaded from the site I bought my key, no illegal or private here. But the fact was, the original Activation (picture below) could not accept my key:

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a89/yugiboy2005/Serial_Code1-300x142-1.jpg

Then I find some solutions on google and found that Launcher with no GRP, which will appear like this:

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a89/yugiboy2005/Input_Product_Key-300x187.jpg

I applied my key again and it was successful. So I just want to give my suggestion for those anyone occured this error.

By the way, that file is virus-free, so dont worry too much.

The launcher was updated a few weeks ago.. so you may have a different looking one.

The CD Key is not related to which version you have though - so if it did not work on the original one, it's unlikely to work on the newer one.

There was some issues with Keys at launch - however that was fixed on the server - so maybe why a different launcher appeared to work.. just good timing.

However I still suggest you never download any 'fixed' launchers from non official sites - just in case.

It's also common that groups make these launchers to harvest keys.. or crack games..


Needless to say, giving your Key away, such as that, is not going to be covered by any warrenty issued by Ubisoft.

Hopefully the name of the file you used, was just a mistake.

The CD Key is invalid.


It does not matter which launcher you use - as long as it's the 100% official one, it will STILL be invalid - if it is typed in correctly.

The danger of using 3rd party launchers - is someone could steal your key - so please ONLY use the official one.

You need to wait for the retailer to send you a new one, as you said they are?

You need a new key from your retailer - they will be the quickest at getting you playing.

if they can't supply one, you can contact Ubisoft Support - they will require photographic proof of ownership - so have a camera ready.

See if they can change it for you.

If they can't help you - please contact Ubisoft Support - who may require proof of purchase etc - so have the invoice and a camera handy.


First port of call, should be the retailer though - allow them to try and correct it for you.

Hopefully it's just an error.


Was it a retail disc - with a scratch card you received?


I will pass the info on, to Ubisoft, just in case there was an issue with that retailers allocation.
