Have you restarted your laptop after WitE install?
What OS you have on your PC and on your laptop?
XP on the PC and Vista on the laptop
BTW, I am asking this because I think this is all UAC related...
Had that issue before with other games becasue Vista sucks.
However I can't get this fixed.
AFAIK the game installer just checks wether the serial is OK (i.e. proper number and not just some random set of numbers) - also, AFAIK, it doesn't go on-line and calls home for serial number confirmation!
Thus this must be some kind of local Vista issue on your laptop... sorry...
But please try this though!
Try running installer with "Run As Administrator" because in order to enter data into Registry you have to have certain rights (and serial number is entered into Windows Registry...
