Nope there is none.

Have two comments on this though:

1. The error where the game asks for CD key only happens when UAC is turned on (the default mode in Windows 7 included) because the game isn't allowed to write some registry file.

2. No CD key with Steam version = no multiplayer. However if you guy it off GOG.com they are kind enough to provide one if you email their support team.


And as far as getting this game running for me, both GOG.com and Interplay support says "We don't currently support Windows 7", but I don't know whether W7 or it being 64bit is the problem or both. Haven't got the time to test it yet and won't be able for some good time.
