    Does your email have a 'forgotten your password?' type link?

    If it is already activated, why do you need to do it again?

    Or are you trying to activate the same product key on a different Steam account?

    Your copy of FM will be linked to your other Steam account then, you can't activate the same copy of FM on more than one Steam account for obvious reasons.

    I think your only two options are to regain access to your previous Steam account or to buy another copy of FM.

    You can email steam but you will need the account details before they will do anything, you will need at least the email add and username.

    Is there no way at all of you accessing your old account? If you have the email add you could change the password for that and give your ex the details after, that way you can get back into your steam account and then set it to a new email address to avoid this happening again.

    All I can suggest is that you contact STEAM: http://community.sigames.com/showthr...tion-Steam-FAQ

    Sadly our FAQ doesn't cater for ex's withholding users passwords

    Please bare in mind the time of year so they might not get back straight away.

    Cheers.

    you dont need to put your key back in, when you load up steam FM will be in the games library, you will just need to re-install through there.
