Starforce vs Windows 2000 on VMWare

Post by scheurneus » 02 Dec 2014 16:36

Hi all,

I'm trying to get the demo of TMO to work on my PC (Win8.1). StarForce rendered my Win8.1 unbootable. That is fixed, but I can't play TMO this way. In VirtualBox with Windows 2000, TMO didn't give proper view (no Direct3D). In VMWare (again Windows 2000), Direct3D works according to DXDiag, but if i try to launch the game, StarForce gives this error: "This application can be launched with a release version of Miscrosoft Windows 95 OSR2.1/98/ME/NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 only." However, it is running on Windows 2000 SP4. I have installed KB835732 also, for the sake of running VMWare Tools. I have also tried 98SE on VBox, but not yet on VMWare. Will it work with 98SE on VMWare? Or is there a way to get this to work on Win2K?

P.S. I don't have XP available, so don't ask
P.P.S How do i post the log SF generated?
