    Make sure that you are entering everything right. Your user, password & key. If that all is right than I would be walking to Steam. You got the game from them and they gave you the Key.

    I have reinstalled this game about 4 times and had to reactivate it every time. I own a Ubisoft copy and not a steam copy. Plus if you reformat you do have to reactivate. If you are using a Steam copy you have to talk to Steam. If it isn't a Steam copy you better have all your paper work in order because Ubisoft support will make you jump through hoops. To prove you are the owner.

    Since I upgraded to windows 8, none of my steam games work right (Civ 5, Tropico, Anno, etc). Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    I am also getting this error message after I've attempted to reinstall Anno 2070 so I can get back into it before getting the expansion.

    I put a support ticket in 4 days and have heard nothing.

    At this stage, I feel I'd be better served downloading a Pirate copy of the game.
