Play Any Game Without Serial Key

Mar 16, 2013 Remember we are telling you about these so that you can play games you have legally purchased without having the hassle of inserting the CD, and we are not encouraging you to pirate software in any way. Play your game. DAEMON Tools Pro/Magic Disc/Ultra ISO acts a virtual disk drive, which is why many people who own laptops without disk drives use it. You can use this method for program that requires a disk but you must change the.ISO every time — think of it as an actual disk drive, not a program that imitates a disk drive.

I can’t seem to find anything online that would suggest I can play this game legally without a CD. Not to mention, the CD I own has a chunk of it missing (it still plays fine and installs fine), and having it on multiple computers is a hassle because of the CD always needed requirement.

Is there any way to do this? Whenever I try playing without a CD, I get this:

  1. Buying it on Steam isn’t a bad idea. There’s a good community that sprang up around it, and you’ll get Steam multiplayer along with some slightly better graphics. They also actively update AOE2:HD based on requests from players with things you won’t get from the CD.
  2. If you want to run what you have without a CD, I would recommend downloading the unofficial/soon-to-be-official expansion Age of Forgotten Empires It includes a color fix for Windows 7 and removes the need for a CD.

In most places it is legal to make copies of software for personal use so long as only one copy is run at one time. I am not a lawyer and this isn’t legal advice, but I believe this is true in the United States, Canada, and Europe so long as the CD doesn’t have any copy protection.

Therefore, for personal use, in such places you can legally make a binary image file of the disc (an ‘ISO’) and then use virtual drive software to load the image so that it appears to be a CD drive with the disc in it. I’ve done this personally with my very played copy of Oblivion since I started to get concerned about disc damage.

I won’t recommend any particular software because it depends so much on your exact OS and sometimes on you disc drive, but any CD cloner and any virtual CD drive software will do the job.

Back in the days when I played it with friends in my LAN I made an image from the CD and mounted it with daemon tools. Worked fine.


This might not have to do with your question, but if by multiple computers you mean playing with people connected to a private network at home then this will be useful. When I play with 5 or 6 people at home and 2 discs are required, we have to take the cd out of the host computer and put it in someone else’s, wait for the ‘cd’ to appear by that person’s name, then put the disc back in the host computer and start the game quickly. We have 2 discs but we always lose one so this method always comes in handy.


Try to install the DLC mod: The forgotten Empires.

Its installer can also launch the game, and it works fine without the disk and also as the main launcher for the game.You can get it from here:

I installed the game but couldnt run it, because the oficiall launchers were giving me errors, but that solved my problem (and also the problem of the disk)

Just make sure to paste and leave it on the main game folder before and after installing it, then create a shorcut and move it to where you want.


Serial keys for software programs, more accurately called product keys or installation keys, are needed before you can install almost any popular software program.

Serial keys or key codes are often required during the first part of a program’s installation or sometimes after using a program for a certain period of time.

So what do you do when you can’t find that special installation code but you need to install the program again?

Without a doubt, a key finder program — a special kind of software tool — is the best way to go if you’re lost a serial key for one of your software programs, so long as it’s still installed or recently was.

Product key finder programs are software tools that automatically search your computer for the serial keys stored in the Windows Registry or elsewhere on your computer.

For example, when you installed your operating system and other software, the product keys used during their installations were stored, probably encrypted, inside a specific registry key.

See our article on free product key finder software programs for a ranked and reviewed collection of these very handy tools, all of which are free to download, install, and use.

Now, you could manually look in the registry for the serials and install keys yourself, but they can be very hard to find. Not only that, the stored keys are usually encrypted, making what you dig up there completely useless anyway.

Most product key finder programs were originally designed to find the serial numbers and key codes for operating systems like Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, etc., but many of them find serials and keys for many other programs, too, like office suites, video games, and more.

Even if you think, or know, the program you’ve lost the key for isn’t installed on your computer anymore, you should still try one of the higher rated product key finder tools in our list.

Sometimes,a program will leave the registry keys that contain that program’s serial key in the registry even after it’s uninstalled, which is why this is worth a try. This isn’t usually the case when the program was removed with a dedicated software uninstaller, but it’s still worth a try.

If that doesn’t work, you’re left with digging around for the box the software came in, the email that accompanied the download, etc.

Unfortunately, at this point, your only legal option is to buy a new copy of the program.

In your search for help with lost serial keys, you’ve probably come across software cracking tools, keygen programs or maybe even lists of free key codes, there for the taking.

It’s very important to realize that none of those resources are legal ways of obtaining installation keys or any other unique code designed to protect programs from being pirated.

The only legal way of installing software is by using a valid installation code obtained through a legal purchase of the software program.
