Fable III PC Retail - Can not activate game. Windows -live must verify the release date of your game make sure that your computer is connected to the internet.

I just bought Fable III PC Retail today and I installed it and get the following window message:

 

Games for Windows - LIVE must verify the release date of your game. Please make sure that your comupter is connected to the internet.

 

No personal information will be sent to Microsoft. A LIVE ID is not required.

 

As you can see I have an internet connection because I am writing this message. There is no button to push or anything to continue with the activation process.

The game came out in 2011 and this is 2012 so it is past the release date.

 

What is the deal here?

Using Windows 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1

i7 2670qm Processor

16gb Ram

Nvidia Geforce 560M GTX 3GB

Answer
I found the answer myself. There is a bug in the retail version of this game. At the pop up menu there is supposed to be a button that says "enter" but it does not show up so just hit enter on the keyboard and all is well.
