If your drivers are updated and you still get this error, visit RealTech VR GLview to check if your computer supports OpenGL 1.3.

Activation

I bought an activation key, but did not receive it. What should I do?

Activation keys are delivered via email. It might take several minutes for the key to arrive. Check your spam folder to make sure the email wasn’t accidentally marked as spam.

When I activate the game, I get the message: “Registration failed. Make sure you entered the code correctly and you are connected to the internet.” What should I do?

Try disabling your firewall and anti-virus software during activation. Make sure your internet connection is working when activating the game.

I lost my activation key. How can I recover it?

Take good care of your activation key. We recommend printing it out and storing in a safe place.

If you registered at shop.angrybirds.com, your activation key is stored on your Downloadable Products page.

Otherwise, please email pcsupport@rovio.com for support.

Can I share my activation key with my friends?

No, one activation key is for a single user only. The activation key is valid for three installs, so you can install the game on your desktop or laptop with a single key.
