    Hey all,

    I recently got windows 7 and when I was installing one of my favourite games, D-Day, I encountered a problem.

    I fully installed it and then I finally came to the last part, restarting my computer, when I did that a sign came up saying 'Starforce Protection is not compatible on windows 7..........get a patch'. I looked on the starforce website and it says a supplier will give it to you free, i couldn't find any suppliers. Also what do u do with the patch, stick it in the program files folder or the cd itself?

    Thanks in advance

    Sadly Starforce doesn't want to enforce its own protection system. According to their site you can only get compatability for Windows 7 with versions before 5.5, you have to be a developer. Wow, and sure enough I had version 3, not supported by Windows 7. Eventually I got tired of trying to aquire their official Starforce protection and just downloaded an .EXE crack for the game that had no protection on it and as I expected it worked just fine. Hey, Starforce brought it on themselves. Had no other choice except pretend to be a developer.

    Thanks for that,

    So I have no other choice than to download a crack for it?

    Where do I get that and how do I use it?


    Thanks
