I ran into a problem with my game activation - and even uninstalling/reinstalling didn't solve it

Please note that uninstalling/reinstalling only very rarely will resolve issues with activation or licensing. The game license is not stored in the game directory, and therefore a re-installation changes little or nothing related to licensing and activation. To save you unnecessary chores, or even introduce new issues by accident as you uninstall and reinstall, please **do not reinstall until specifically directed by our support staff.**
