What version of X3:Reunion is it and where did you buy it from? What have you tried from the support threads and FAQs so far?

If you are reading the code from a printed disk label or leaflet then be sure to check that you are not typing with one of the common mistakes: I/1, 0/O/D/Q, V/U/Y, B/8, 2/Z, etc.

If you want you can PM an Egosoft dev / forum administrator such as Xenon_Slayer with the details of your game, where/how you bought it, what code you are trying to enter and where/how. I am sure he will be able to help you.

EDIT: Haven't you been here before with this - only 8 years ago? :o

I removed the code to prevent any misuse by others (which is why I suggested use of PM to a dev). I will see what I can do to get help after the following have been considered.

The 4 by 4 Alphanumerics code with '-' as dividers is the correct format except that all letters should be capitals.

Meanwhile also check for reading/typing errors as I mentioned earlier - specifically 5/S and 0/O/D/Q errors.

Out of interest, why do you feel the need to register X3R on these forums? There is no essential reason to do so that I can think of since the original DRM and forum posting restrictions were removed.

Registering your retail version with Steam to receive a Steam copy is only possible with X3TC and bundles which contain X3TC (such as the Superbox).

The DVD version works fine on the latest Windows operating systems (including Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10). Just make sure to download and install the 1.0 -> 2.5 complete patch after the installation of the game and before running it for the first time. This will prevent problems with the old copy protection system.
