The registration key used to install this game cannot be validated. Bought with Spore:Creepy and Cute on STEAM

★★★★ Newbie

I bought this game with the Creepy and Cute expansions a little while ago on steam.  Only just tried playing it today.  Had to make a few adjustsments in regedit to get it to start, but now I get to the title screen and get this error when I try to register. "The registration key used to install this game cannot be validated".  I was never prompted for any keys.  Can I just not register it since I got it from STEAM?

I saw that page before I posted the question.  Unfortunately my case doesn't apply to it.  As I said, I have just installed the game using STEAM.  I have never played/installed/registered/whatever this game before.  So no previous accounts for it exist.  It did not prompt me for a key nor was I provided with one.

Right click on spore in the library and click on CD Key, thats the key, but I don't see where to register it.

I contacted EA through their chat service and they fixed everything. I would do the same.
