    When I try to launch Civ4, a box appears labeled ActiveMark technologies stating that an internet connection is required. Whether I click "Already Connected" or "Connect", I get the same result: "Error connecting to the internet".
    There is no problem with my browser, my connection is fine for everything but this game.
    I am running an HP model p6710f with Windows 7 64 bit. Integrated graphics using ATI Radeon 4200.

    I don't remember where I bought this, probably from the now-defunct Direct2Drive, and it is not appearing in my list of Gamefly games, and Gamefly support is practically nonexistent.

    I posted a reply but it appears to have disappeared.

    Googling ActiveMark it appears to be the DRM from TryMedia. I posted some links in the last post I made but if you find trymedia they have hints in their FAQ about things to try. If you still need to activate the game you will need the code that you got when you bought it. It looks like you can retrieve activation codes from trymedia through your account if you bought from there, if it was D2D you will have to deal with Gamefly technical support.

    I did have some links in the last post I (thought I) made, but I haven't saved them so you'll have to google as I did.
