Where's my product key?
I have this already installed on my PC (free version) but can't find the product key for the advanced version I just bought from steam... searching around my profile can't find it in my library!

...and if you want the key for use with the standalone version, just start 3DMark and go to the Help tab. Or upload one result to 3DMark.com account with the advanced edition and the key will be there under Settings.

Ok, so what your saying is just start the app and go to Help tab, my product key will be there?
How can I upload one result with advanced edition when I don't have the product key to unlock it in the first place?

Steam version of 3DMark is automatically Advanced Edition when you start it (Steam puts the key in). Sorry, there is no way that I know of to see the key in the Steam client itself.

I can´t understand why steam version have no possibility to standalone instalation? I allways used 3DMark for stress testing graphics with looping.I don´t need testing software which needs allways instalation of steam and downloading so many data on other PC´s- it is waste of time.It is most stupid thing I have heard.In fact Steam is the worst thing for distributing testing software.This is not game and there is supose of mutiple standalone instalations for testing.This is not Office or game installed in one PC ;-)

Ok, thanks for that, when I access my gaming PC and its subsequent steam client, I'll check out my library again.

I agree in principle with what your saying, it is silly and time wasting to download this particular software again when its already installed on the machine... this is the BS we have to put up with in the digital age...

This is due to Steam achievements and Steam top lists. If you use the Steam version, it must start via Steam. But you can always install the standalone version installer and use the same product key that you purchased from Steam (it is visible in the Help tab - need to start the Steam version once to get it).

With the standalone version, you will lose is the ability to get Steam achievements or get your score to the Steam 3DMark top lists. Also the current version does not offer as easy updates (tho that is going to change in the upcoming update)

Standalone version can be downloaded via our website:
