Most likely the game connects with the server and registers the serial numbers in use from the desktop and rejects it from any other PC

I have bought the game and it can be put on 5 times. I have just put it on another laptop and it has accepted the numbers and the game plays full version. Why on some newer xp computers won't the number be accepted?

I expect the game site support would give you the best answer

You could compare settings for each PC but that would take a while
