Once you launch the game, a window should appear, saying:
This application needs to be activated before you can play the game. A valid serial must be used.
You can then click on "next" or "cancel". If you click on "next", you will then get a window saying:
Please enter your valid serial number in the space provided and click on "activate".
We recommend you copy and paste that serial number, so as not to make any mistakes. An activation status bar will then appear, displaying the actual status of your activation.
If everything goes correctly, your game is activated and the Start button will not be greyed out anymore. If you click it you will be able to launch your game. On the following launches for the game on the same machine you will not have to activate it anymore.
If it does not go right, a new window will appear, saying that the activation process was stopped and prompting you to verify that the serial was indeed entered correctly.
If you wish to cancel the installation you just need to click on the Cancel button, and quit the game. You can also click on the back button, which will bring you back to the preceding window (where you input your serial/key). If you click on Manual Activation, you will be entering the "offline" activation mode.
The next window to appear will present you with an unlock request code. DO NOT use it on the space asking you to enter your unlock code just under it, as this is not the unlock code, it is the unlock REQUEST code.
To be able to use that space, you will have to send to go to this page: https://support.securom.com/PAunlock/index.php?c=1000&exp_unlock=1 and follow the instructions in order to generate the unlock code.
Copy the unlock code and enter it in the manual activation dialog in order to activate the game.
