I'm getting the error that I don't meet the hardware requirements when trying to use my Watchdogs Legion Key?
Bought my 3080 FTW3 Ultra direct from EVGA
Any idea what issue is?
Thanks

    You have the 3080 installed in the system requesting the code, correct? Also, make sure your drivers are up to date.

    Random Associate Code >> GDWZE7QOTF << this is NOT my associate code. I do not have an associate code. Feel free to use it to save a few bucks.

    GP300, that is strange that it isn’t working. Does GEForce show that your 3080 is installed in the hardware tab, or some tab like that?


    CIDD, Yes, but you can immediately remove it afterward.

      As was already mentioned above me, you can download the separate Geforce Experience installer and uninstall after activating the game.  No need to worry about the main nvidia driver.  Thats what I did.

    how.. do you get a code? I never got an email from EVGA after my purchase that included a code.
     
    nm, it's here https://www.evga.com/arti...on/default.asp#collect
     
    super dumb that you cant redeem a code w/o having the card in that system. was hoping to give it to a friend.

    You have to register the card and request a code on the EVGA watchdog page.

    Yes, the 3080 is showing in the My Rig section of GeForce Experience.

    It's through GeForce Experience so I don't think it could be the browser and I don't have anything  special on my router

    Agreed.


    But you can install GeFart Experience to activate the code, then wipe its existence from your system with DDU. Reinstall new drivers without it and everything is great again.
