Default Cannot start the game.

I bought this game through the website. Got email directing me to some awkward page (in french, which i don't speak). Found my activation code there and a program called like "telecharger". Saved it and ran. It downloaded game installation files. Installed the game. It never asked to enter activation code. Now when i try to launch game i see a splash screen for a second and then get a message saying "Cannot continue. The game not
activated. You must activate it online". Ok, gladly, but how do i do it?

Windows 7 32bit, have .NET installed, ran as admin.

Hey!

By The website, do you mean shop.dawnoffantasy.com ? Apprently "telecharger" means "download", so you took the correct action there. The problem sounds weird though, it should launch the updater when you launch the game and into that you're supposed to enter you key. Could you check that you don't have any other dof shortucts/executables in your computer or anything that would hint towards dof updater.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
Yes, it was shop.dawnoffantasy.com.
When i click game icon it runs the dofupdater. For a second it has text "connecting to server" and then the "not activated" popup appears with an "OK" button which just closes everything. No place to enter code.
And i never had DoF before, so it's my first executable.
Please help, i'd like to play this game.

I installed the game on my notebook and had same result. So it's not my computer problem. I'm behind the NAT. Can this cause the issue? If so, what ports should be forwarded?

Hi Josh,

Did you even play Dawn of Fantasy beta? that might be causing your problem.

Did you try completely uninstalling and reinstalling the game?

Hello Konstantin,

I never played DoF before. no beta, no alpha, still not playing. Uninstalled/reinstalled about 5 times, and one more with installation package Alex sent me. Getting the same Dof splashscreen with "connecting to server" text on the bottom and then "not activated" popup window. Disabling firewall not helping either.

Still waiting for solution.

You may have another firewall that you are not aware of.. Cleaning tools and utilities sometimes have their own firewall, check that if possible mate cause this was my problem in beta, i had a cleaning tool "Which doesn't make sense to me" that had a firewall



And also, Routers sometimes have firewalls as well, which is why I gave up the 360 to plug my pc directly into the modem instead of a router.
