That's not a problem, just click Activation Support (on the laptop) and follow the instructions to get an activation key from us.
If you're noticing that the game is activated when your laptop has a internet connection and deactivates when it's not connected to the internet, that could be due to wireless internet being turned off. We have fixed this in subsequent episodes but it's still an issue for episode 1. If this happens, click Activation Support when the internet is turned on, note the hardware fingerprint, and click it again when the internet is turned off, and note the hardware fingerprint. Send us both, and we should be able to generate two activation keys for you (one that works when the internet is on, and the other that works when it's off).
