I can't find where the Spellforce 2 saves are located. There is nothing obvious in the game's install directory and a quick perusal of Document and Settings revealed nothing. Anybody got any ideas?

Second question: I have the game installed on a shared PC. Under my login, the game works fine, but when my son tries to login and play the game, it asks him for a license key, which I do not have (didn't need one under my login). Any ideas on how to get around that?

You're on XP cogadh ?

Aren't the saves in "My documents/ Spellforce2" ?

Hah! Of course it is. I thought I had files sorted by name (I didn't) and when I didn't see a "Spellforce 2" right next to "Spellforce", I didn't look any further. That's one question down, now I just need to fix this license key issue.

I'm not sure why it would ask for a serial when booting from your son's account. Is it a limited account previleges wise ?

In any case, If indeed there's a serial around somewhere it's most likely stored in the registry. Maybe you could try to look around a bit for it there?

It's an admin account, just as mine is.

A-ha! Again, I was just looking in the wrong place. I had checked the registry already, but I didn't bother looking in HKEY_CURRENT_USER (should have been the first place I looked). Thanks for the help. Here, have a cookie!

Why, Thank You kind sir! ;)
I had a similar problem on my dual-boot system. I installed the game in Windows 7, and could play it in Windows 7. But when I booted the system in Windows XP, and ran the same game files, I suddenly was asked for a license key. Obviously the installer had added something (presumably the key that has been mentioned above) into the Win7 registry, which was of course missing in the XP registry.

Being too lazy to fiddle around with registry keys, I ran the installer again (now from XP), and installed the game into the folder where it already was. This solved the problem. Interestingly, the install happened with lightning speed. There is no way the installer could have copied several gigabytes of files in an eyeblink, so apparently the installer realized that the files were already there, and just updated the registry. Nice. :)
