Did you login to your stardock account? It has all your registrations?
I have got my login at stardock, and it has got my cd key there. It is listed as a Sins trinity key. I can and have downloaded a 1.33-1.37 patch there, which is useless for the 1.00 version. After I 1.37 it manually from my other computer (which I am assuming is actually making my 1.00, 1.37) and try to load the game I get the stackdock activation message. Because I am trying to load diplomacy (from the trinity bundle) the stardock activation is looking for a diplomacy cd key, not the trinity key, which is will not accept, and I get the specific message "this in not a DIPLOMACY key." Why it thinks I have diplomacy and not trinity is beyond me.
If you can update via GameStop, you should be able to install the GameStop app on your new machine and install/update there through it as well; it should do the activation transparently when it does so. Or if it is registered with us, you can download from the link ZombieRus provided.
not a valid key for diplomacy (here I assume that my single activation key is for trinity)
They are the same as far as the game cares. So long as you are entering the correct email address, it should accept it. If it won't, contact email@example.com and they should be able to get it sorted out.

I have installed GameStop on my new machine. Because of something to do with stardock changing their activation method (basically they have stoped using gamestop now) anyone with either a recent purchase, or, reinstalling on a new computer cannot get a gamestop update, as there is no way to activate games there anymore, as in:

Are you sure about the cd key? I will reinstall and try again. As to support getting it sorted, I am sure they can to, I just wanted to play NOW (stamping foot, lol)
Last time I updated Diplomacy thru GameStop, it downloaded the whole damn game again, which is what the OP is complaining about. I hope Zoom realizes or looked when he updated how much bandwidth it used. I once sent a link to a friend of a documentary on youtube and it cost her almost $30 in overage charges on the cheapest plan.
Online providers seems to think that everyone has unlimited bandwidth and are always online. Both assumptions are total BUNK.
Indeed. I had to stop play X3 terrain conflict because of this. I had a $20 dollar game, which will not longer run without a 6.2GB patch, which will cost me around $130 dollars in downloads (and for some Chinese updates no less, nothing that will actual do anything for the English version). After investing two months into the game, it just added to my total dislike of steam/gamestop and the like. I actual look at new games now, and will not buy them if these are listed as requirement (and most new games are).
I always check the size of the download (after a movie torrent debacle, which I did not realize was happening, where every time I jumped online a whole movie series was trying to download, for 10.5 gigs worth- took me 7.0 gb to work this out). For the 1.34-1.37 download, I used about 200mb, for a 22mb patch, so not a total download, but still, a $2.50 cost to me
