Trackmania Powerup on Windows 7

Hello every one!
I've tried to install Trackmania Powerup on my Win7 machine, but I'm stuck at a disc check loop, it keep asking for reboot.
It was working on my Xp VM, but it was extremly laggy. Is there any solution to make the game work on 7 without the original update?

Hi trackmaster123,
It is quite easy to get the game working on Windows 7 and 10. All you need to do is update the game's StarForce version so that it works on newer operating systems.
If your system has 8 GB or more of RAM then you will also need to use a DirectX wrapper.

Running games in a VM can be painful as you can get worse performance and some games just crash due to bad virtualization support of standardized drivers.
