Crysis(Steam) - Error at launch

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
recently did a massive upgrade and decided to test out Crysis. When I try to launch it it gives me this error;

The game can not start

For security reasons, only a limited number of machines can ever be licensed by a single purchase. This limit has been reached. Please purchase another registration code, reinstall, and try again.


Is there any way around this? I've only reinstalled like maybe four times.

Hop on EA's website and go into their "Live Help" area. Its pretty easy to find. Almost immediately someone should contact you over IM and just tell them what is going on. They will ask for your serial key and then up your install limit to 15(?) iirc. I went through the same thing just a while back and it was all of 8-10 minutes of my time.
It does the job
