-Did you respect capitals as they are written?

-Or, i forgot how SC4 works but do you install the game, THEN enter the code once you play the game? If so, try downloading the last update.

-AND contact Aspyr support.

Also, this may be too obvious to mention, and I have no idea what a Simcity CD key looks like, but sometimes confusion of letters or numbers could cause a problem: zeros vs. ohs, ones vs. ells, that sort of thing. One mistake could screw it all up.

Unfortunately the font used by the manufacturer wasn't a very good one. Make sure you're not confusing '8' and 'B', or 'Y' and 'V', etc. And definitely contact Aspyr technical support.
