    When I clicked StillLife.exe, I got the error window :

    Protection system
    error
    This application can be launched with a release version of Microsoft windows 95/98/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP/server 2003 only.

    I tried to disable the anitvirus but same thing.

    My system:

    winXP pro x64
    AMD phenom II X4 955
    3.21 ghz 7.99 gb RAM

    I have figured out the problem: StillLife uses a copy protection named "starforce". This starforce may require a new driver to work properly. The problem with this starforce is that the driver stays in your computer even after you uninstall the game. Which is bad.

    So instead of update the driver, I uninstalled the game. But still I am glad I know what was the problem.
