few months ago, I purchased the game Empire Total war (Gold edition) from France whilst on holiday. When attempting to install this game, the code I used gave me the message:
"Please first activate the original game, the code you've entered requires ownership of another product before activation".
This was when I entered into Product Activation. However, I do not believe it is a special forces or other code, as it say's above it:
"Code of activation for Empire total war Gold edition"
, I decided to try again after all this time and have finally decided to get support on the matter. I can only find the code on this part of the manual, at the back of the main booklet. I know it is not an extra as I followed the instructions for finding the code well, I have already sent a query to Steam and Sega customer support but no reply after a couple of days. I don't know if it requires ownership of another game before buying ETW gold edition.
If needed i'll provide screenshots of what happens when I enter code.
