If you're on a 64 bit system, change the sniper.reg file that is made available from the game download page so the key is added to 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\City Interactive\Sniper2' You should just be able to open the .reg with any text editor, I recommend Notepad++, and change it. If you continue to have a problem the key may be faulty and you should contact GamersGate for a new key.

Make sure you put in the right serial key. Copy and paste straight off GamersGte into your game.

I have the problem. I also tried to un-install and reinstall to no avail. I hunted down some answers and I got the following from the internet. Work and Torchlight have keep me very busy and I have not tried this particular solution, so I do not know if it will solve the issue.

As Stefanvlric mentioned you will have to use a text editor like Notepad.

If you decide to use this solution and it works please let us know.



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\City Interactive\Sniper2]
"WriteDir"="Sniper - Ghost Warrior"

If this doesn't work you could always ask the people who run GamersGate for another CD key, that seemed to solve some other people's false CD key problems.

Download the .reg file and edit in notepad as ggarthur says, but make sure you use the second serial (not activation code) then run the file. Works :)
