So, I got DOW sometime before christmas. Burned the Xenos through all difficulties on the single-player campaign. Couldnt go online cause of where I lived, then I move, get high-speed, catch a virus, reinstall windows, go to reinstall DOW so I can finally go online and battle real opponents, and I cant find my CD key. So I go to the THQ website, email support, and they tell me to check the back of my jewell case... right? Problem is, my disks came in paper envelopes, and the key was on a card that I must have lost while moving. So I emailed THQ again and asked if they would like photos of the DOW box, manual, insert for Winter Assault, Rebate for Winter Assault, and those damn envelopes so I could show that I actually bought the game and wasnt looking to rip them off. So far they havent responded, but I cant afford to just go out and buy DOW, especially when I need to get Winter Assault also. Does anybody have contact info for someone at THQ that could help? I already paid the cash for the game (no I dont have the receipt! all I have is the OEM retail box and these 3 blasted envelopes!) and I dont feel that I should pay all over again just for the damnable key that I lost. I mean, if you loose the keys to your car, dont you just get a new set? I dont know of anyone who looses their car-keys and has to buy a new car, savvy? :confused:

I had the same problem before.

My bro was cleaning up the computer room and threw away the white envelopes the winter assault games came in. A few days later i got a new computer and had to reinstall dawn of war. Problem was i needed the CD keys to winter assault and i couldn't find it anywhere.

Well i was thinking maybe they put the CD key numbers in the manual, and i looked everywhere. Eventally i found that small manual and behold, the CD key was in there so i was saved.

In anycase, if you have the manual, look for the CD key in there, and perhaps the numbers will be in there.

If not, then might as well buy the gold edition at walmart, its like $20 dollars US.

I hope that helped you out.

Ouch man, that really sucks. If you do have the manual, look on the back of it, my CD key is on there, yours may be there too. Other than that I don't know what to suggest.

Actually, if you use someone elses' CD key you cant play with them. I know because I did that and now me and my friend cant play with or against and I want to keep building up my TT army, or saving up for BF2 not buying a game that we already have. Note: it also messes with your WA if you ever get one.

All I can think of is get a chainwords and cleanse some heretics.:devil::KTA:Or wait. Which game do you need the CD code for? Since obviously they wont help send me an email and I could send you the code. Give me your DoW multi name too.

maybe he would call fleet and bomdard THQ's customer support to a holocaust. (just now thinking of possible reactions to word choice) (holocaust means death and fire)
