CD Key And Windows 7 64 Bit
With Windows 7 I had to enter my CD key every time even though I am running as an administrator. I found that in order to not have to reenter the CD key, you need to run steam in Window XP compatibility mode. I hope this helps.

You can turn the compatibilty mode off again, once it is activated :-)

Bummer, I tried setting steam to XP compatibility mode and it locks up completely. Same with vista compatibility mode.

Any other work arounds?

Sorry, I'm using Win8 Pro MCE x64, not win7.

I run in win7 compatibility mode and it still asks for key every time I run it.

Any clues?

Hey Guys

I am running win 7 64 bit ultimate, the processor and graphics card should not matter as long as your computer is not older than 5 years (give or take). I am running on 3yr old laptop with max settings and your system is definitely better. The only issue I have is the one described above, where you have to enter the key every time you play. No other issues besides that.

Ok i will hope that the game is working on my PC, because on my first system spellforce doesn´t run on any way.Can it be that the Dics was damaged ?

Great, what is the lilnk?

Suggestion did not work for me. Still have to enter CD key each time. Any other suggestions?

Try this:
1) Open regedit with administrative privileges
2) Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SpellForce
3) In the right side of the window you should see 3 items, named CDKEY, CDKEY1 and CDKEY2. If you don't see them, create them by right clicking on that area and selecting New>String Value, and then correctly name them.
4) Double-click on the CDKEY one and insert the cdkey that Steam gives you, in uppercase and with the - symbols (so exactly as it's shown by Steam)
5) Now close regedit and try running the game.

I'm not sure if this works, as I didn't have that problem, but might be worth a try.
