Invalid CD-key in Sim City 4 deluxe edition

I just purchased a copy of Sim City 4 deluxe edition, but I can't install it because there is an issue with the CD key. I've checked, double checked and checked it all over again but the installer won't accept it. What do i do? Seems to me I have got a faulty code.

Sincerely

 

Kim

Reported.. :smileysurprised: That's a big No No. Jeez, that's been on here for 7 months.. lol. Nice find.

 

Were both codes in the same format? ( 5 sets of 4 alphanumeric codes).

 

For a CD install I don't think the code gets checked online. There was a reported issue where the CD codes were mixed with online codes at one time. Apparently one won't register if used as the other. Like trying to redeem a CD code on an online entry system (origin site, Origin client) will likely give you an "invalid code" message.
