The weird thing is that I used khổng lồ have both installed & yuri worked.

MS released a update a while bachồng that disabled SafeDisc, which is the copy protection used by the games and for whatever messed up reason its added to lớn the installers as well.

https://tư vấn.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3086255

Try uninstalling KB3086255, it should work then if the installers worked previously.

Worked for me & a whole lot of other people.

The installer has SafeDisc embedded in it, thus this "update" breaks running the installer. TS was the last game to have a installer that doesn"t have sầu it.

 

Not really my fault if M$ fucked up something in the update uninstalling

Make sure you block it from the pending updates các mục after you uninstall it so it doesn"t return.

I"ve sầu not really messed about with this myself, but would it not be a better idea lớn update the registry khổng lồ enable loading of the safedisc driver again rather than removing the security update? Especially since on Windows 10 the "fix" is part of the OS & can"t be removed AFAIK.

Not really, removing & blocking the update is short & efficient. It also doesn"t affect anything else on the system.

 


Especially since on Windows 10 the "fix" is part of the OS and can"t be removed AFAIK.


On Windows 10, however, manual insertion and activation of the driver is the only option (well, other than using cracks).

It"s "KB3086255", &, uh, really, just google around. There are even video tutorials of that. It"s basically just disabling automatic Windows updates, then uninstalling that specific update, then waiting for it to lớn pop up again as pending update, and when it does, disabling it & telling your system not khổng lồ bother you with it again. After that"s done you can enable automatic updates again.

That"s a stripped multiplayer only version though. Hardly a solution.

Kinky is correct, its due to copy-write protection. There are security flaws with the SECDRV service, so Microsoft essentially disabled it in windows 7. There is a workaround for it though - which is khổng lồ manually start the service, then install. To bởi this you would:

 

-Cliông chồng start > type CMD right cliông chồng it and select run as administrator

-When the blachồng box pops up type: sc start secdrv

-Install the game, and chạy thử it to lớn make sure its working.

-When you"re done playing disable the service by typing in CMD: sc stop secdrv

 

You will need to lớn have the secdrv service started if you aren"t using a no-cd crachồng, cause its the only way windows 7 will properly recognize the disc và its contents.

This is kind of annoying to lớn have sầu to lớn do though, and the XWIS multiplayer download (that kinky posted a liên kết to) does include a no-cd crachồng, which would bypass the issue entirely. It also works with hoiquanzen.com, và can be used khổng lồ skirmish and other things, so it does have *somewhat* full functionality.
