I got mine now but my buddy still has yet to get his :/

EDIT: As soon as I say that he restarts the launcher and now he has a key, so if you dont see one just try restarting.

Quick question. Can i install this game on 2 computers at the same time?

I kinda of installed it in my netbook and lets just say it doesn't run "smooth" so i want to install it on my pc..

Yes, you can install it on 2 computers at the same time, but you'll only have one CD key for online play. You have to install the client on both computers, download the game on both computers, and then you should be good.

As you'd mentioned...you're probably not going to have a great time playing it on a netbook. :)

This is the definition of an awesome deal. I've not used Games for Windows before. Where do I go to find the key?

Right click the CD icon next to the game and select display keys (or something like that). This is a stupid UI mistake making something so important so hard to find.

It took me a while to find it, too.

1) restart your client, if you haven't.
2) Go to the "downloads" section, where you can see the games you've pruchased. Find your game. Expand it; there's a drop--arrow that will reveal your activation keys.

Yes, but you will not be able to play at the same time as you need to be connected to xbox live. When you log on to a pc, it disconnects all other xbox live connections, including your xbox. This is the stupidest thing in the world. I was beta testing a product and had connected the game to my xbox live account. So my son would decide to play the game and without realizing it would disconnect me from xbox live and suddenly no netflix, etc. Really sucks.

Wrong. AoE III is not a Live title, so you don't need to worry about being connected to live with it.

I can't promise you this will work for you, but I had the same situation. I didn't want to cancel, because I was afraid it would make me re-download.

Eventually, when I saw people here were getting codes, I just figured "wtf" and clicked "cancel" (way over on the right). At that point, the "cancel" and "retry" buttons went away, and were replaced with "install", and a note that I'd already downloaded the installer.

At this point, I closed the client, re-opened it, and the keys were available. I did NOT have to re-download; I just clicked "install" and away it went!

Good luck. YMMV but I hope it works for you like it did for me.

WOOHOO! I tried again after leaving it frustrated for a few days and it seems to be working, thanks!
