Same issue dont seem to be allowed to post here can an admin please update my privileges so that I can but I can reply here's a copy of post I put in beta bug report's:

I've got my box from game UK, had pre-ordered, it arrived today, tried to enter key... the 1st sequence of numbers is larger then the box in the game, the release key has 6 numbers then 5 then 5 then 5 then 4

the box in game that requests key accepts 5 then 5 then 5 then 5 then 5.......

I installed from cd allows, theres one more in it, now by adding that one it jumbles the whole lot up but I did manage to enter it but it was annoying as each box thereafter obviously had one more however the last box allowed for one more key so it all did fit even if you either printed it wrong or made software wrong... then it said something about time key is invalid and doesnt accept it

Yes it says

The Time period for this CD key is over. in a msg box with one option OK then a 2nd one pops up which says

That Key is not valid for Dawn of Fantasy, Invalid Key. with OK/Cancel
