    In order to obtain your Key ... You need to be in the Games for Windows Marketplace > Click on "Downloads"

    Click on "Age of Empires Online" >Click "View Game Keys"

     

    Uh oh... that shouldn't have happened.

    It appears you've found a glitch in the system.

    You have to go into Games For Windows Marketplace (Windows Start Menu --> Games) then "buy" the AoE Online game for free, it will then  tell you its downloading it although it shouldn't actually download anything. After that, go to "Downloads", click AoE Online and click "View Game Keys"

    Dammit, didnt spot the forum site on AOE-Online

    Solution is here: forums.ageofempiresonline.com/.../76765.aspx

    Note: I did not see the game code I had to download AOE again through the GFWL Market Place then follow this guide.

    what i did was go to the actual marketplace and add AoEO to my download queue and stuff, i typed in my billing info and confirmed the purchase of 0 microsoft points, then it was on my downloads list and from there i just followed eastmanblues' steps and that gave me the product key! (ignore my name i just got this account)

    I am a BIG FING GEEK  and I this is the most screwed up site i have ever seen. HOW DO I FIND AOE online product key that the game asks for on start up?

    guys the answer is really simple. just go to the marketplace and hit the downlaod button for the game. then (without actually downloading it again) it will show up in the downloads page and you will be able to get ur product key

    the problem is this product key is asked when i go to marketplace - so there is nothing to download, buy or whatever
