Hello, I've just downloaded Sins of a Solar Empire btw best space rts game I can find.   I'm on my new pc and I go to download it with the impulse gamestop app, when I finish downloading, and it goes to ask for a serial key so that I can activate my key, I type in EVERYTHING required, and then hit register, nothinghappens, I tried to do the whole compatability thing but that too doesn't work, is there something wrong with stardock? I want to have a fast and thorough answer if possible.

Quoting larson-boram,

I have heard Rebellion sometimes has installation issues with Windows 8. Sadly I do not know how to fix them as I have windows 7.

okay, you purchased Sins today from gamestop, or previously through Stardock Impulse, which it no longer owns.  I believe that Gamestop issues the keys, for these purchases not Stardock.

Wait, what version of Sins are we talking about? Rebellion? Trinity? Older?

Try this: http://sd.stardock.com/sdactivate_legacy.zip

Extract the contents to the folder the game was installed via GameStop and overwrite any existing files. You should then be able to complete the registration process.
