The Enhanced Edition is live, but my pre-downloaded copy gives me an install error. Sigh. Another 15Gb being downloaded now.

I believe you just right click on the game in your steam library, then just select view cd key.

Right-click on your game in your steam library, 2nd or 3rd line should be view CD key.

Edit: Ninja'd!

If you pre-downloaded and are having an issue with it being corrupt you will want to save some bandwidth and take a look at this:
Installer corrupt? - The Witcher 2 - Forum - - GOG.com

Here's exactly what I did, for anyone still having trouble:

1. Went to The WitcherŽ 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition and downloaded Part 0, Part 1, Part 2
2. Moved them to the C:\Downloads folder (default location the installer uses)
3. Went down the page to "Enhanced Edition English Language Pack - 5 links" and downloaded 'Part 1'.
4. Moved 'Part 1' to C:\Downloads
5. Ran TW2EE_Patch.exe
All I did is grab part 2 and so far it has gone past where it was erroring out.

Update for people with Steam copies that do not have a key:

CD-keys for GOG backup copies - The Witcher board - Page 2

Basically provide proof of purchase and they will give you a key. Exact details I'm not sure of, but should be in that thread.

Also you mentioned registry but just in case anyone wants to look it would be here if there is one:

Quote:
1. Hit Windows + R

2. Type 'regedit' press enter http://i.imgur.com/x8yFv.png

3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SOFTWARE --> Wow6432Node (ONLY IF x64) --> CD Projekt RED --> The Witcher 2

4. Check the "Serial" registry entry, it should show your The Witcher 2 CD-Key! http://i.imgur.com/BNgXn.png

You can also do it even if you do not have an email proof of purchase, you just have to let your steam profile page be public. Just follow instructions on that page muse108dc posted.

Did you not use the separate file fix posted in teh witcher forums? I had to do it too, worked like a charm. That one 286mb file was corrupt, but if you replaced it the patch was able to compile and apply. It wasn't very clear how the whole patch update process worked, but somehow was seamless enough that it worked just clicking the Next button enough times, surprisingly.
Damn big game files tho.
