Hello all,

For those who absolutely, positively, can't find their serial numbers any other way - please download and run this utility. It requires a valid, legal installation of War in the Pacific. If one exists, it will tell you the serial number that was used to install it. Hope this helps, but the best "defense" is still to keep your purchase records and installer files backed up and safe.

Regards,

- Erik

It doesn't work if you deleted the game from your hard drive right?

Do you have WitP installed?

If you do and it doesn't work then it could be be that either you have a problem with your registry or a you have pirate copy.

My failed hard drive has been replaced. The utility says there is no valid copy of the game on my computer. That's the problem. I downloaded the game originally and had a hard copy sent to me. The code numbers are probably in the trash with the old drive.
I have several of your games all puchased by download so I my have this issue again.
I have hard copies of all the games. Please help!

Lee,

You're lucky I spotted this - for support, please always e-mail support@matrixgames.com as we can't always read all forum posts. It sounds like you should be just fine using www.findmyorder.com to retrieve your serial numbers. If you have any problems with that, please e-mail us.

Regards,

- Erik

You don't need to back up.

You need to buy 5 pocket notebooks, also called Memo books.

Write in it every games serial number.

Do same for each of the 5...

Put one in your Safe Deposit box if got one...

put one in your drawer at computer or keep handy by computer

Put one in a home safe if have one

Put one under your bed

Give the 5th to your Wife for safekeeping..

Sometimes if you use Copy&Paste there are unwanted spaces etc. that are not immediately recognizable by eye. So just try to type it in, if that's the case.

Hi Erik:

I downloaded the utility and it retrieved the S/N and it matches the one on the Registration but when I install the game it says I have an invaild S/N. I purchased the game as a download on 7-31-07.

I do not have the order number or the credit number details.

Is there anyway I can get the game to work?

I submited this to the help desk, but if there is anything else I need to do please let me know.


My username is Tactics and my associated e-mail is xxxxx, I had to format my C drive due to a virus and I lost War in the Pacific. I purchased it several years ago and cannot find the CD. How can I re-download this game? I do have my CD key, but no files.
Thanks

Erik,
This may be a strange question but here goes anyway. I already know my Serial number for Witp.
But I also have UV. And since I went to the members area to check out the new AE goodies I wanted to
register UV as well. I have a cd-rom version of UV but no records of credit card, or email receipt.

Will this finder retro work on UV?

Thanks,
rhohltjr.

Nope, the earlier versions of UV in the retail box had no serial numbers. They were published before we even had a serial number system, which is also why all UV updates don't ask for a serial number. Newer digital download UV releases do have serial numbers. Unfortunately, if you have one of the early releases there's no way to register it as the whole registration system is based on serial numbers and we put it into place once we switched over to using those.
