So, I have Windows 7 x64 and I recently bought the game. I had the opportunity to play the game on this machine before a couple years ago, but I decided to buy it through steam instead of finding the disks. After downloading, I get a prompt by this window called 'Stardock Account Registration'. There are 3 boxes I need to fill out: Stardock Account Email, Password, and Serial. I obtain my serial by right-clicking the game on Steam to view the key. I already had a Stardock account Email.
So, I fill those boxes out and I have to options: Quit and Register. I click Register, NOTHING happens at all. No error, no spinning wheel or any network activity from the program; nothing happens.
I have tried running the program in Compatibility mode, allowed the program through my firewall, made up random information, NOTHING. I also can make a new account in the program and clicking register through that only makes the program flicker.
I sent a video to Stardock support and they are stumped. I really want this game to work, but I don't know what else I can do.
Also, disconnecting my internet gives me an error, but no activation alternatives other than contacting firstname.lastname@example.org like I already did...
I have also tried running the EXE directly but to no avail.
