Discussion in 'rFactor' started by Ondrej Kapal, Jul 9, 2010.

  1. Hey,
    I just bought my rFactor on DVD but there is no activation code and after start up it wants to activate it first... I am confused, where can I get my code ?

    Hmmm - I never needed any codes at all after I installed my DVD copy - I was under the impression that codes were just for downloaded versions.
  3. I was too, I am reading that on some discussion at the moment but after my install it just wanted the code - maybe can it be because I have tried the demo first? it tells me that I have 10 more minutes to try... I deleted temp files registry etc. but it still cant gets work and wants activation code :(
  4. like stu says the dvd version has a disc check so no need to activate, where did you buy your copy, maybe you`ve been ripped off.
  5. I tried it to install on my laptop where it works properly... maybe it is really because of that demo which I uninstalled and deleted everything, maybe there something has stuck up and it thinks that it is not DVD version... I am working on it to find that but I checked it and there is nothing :/
  6. did you delete the rFactor folder in documents?

    theres defo something left over from the demo, if oyu have no luck try googling
  7. I deleted everything... google said me that it can be only this stuff or something with exe files, I will try to upgrade my version (I bought v1.255 but if I will replace my files with files from patch it might works)
  8. ok just for information I did reinstall and used patch to v1.255 (from v1.255 haha) but it works :)
