Windows 7 crash when opening

Recommended Posts

Hi there! 

Just installed SF2 in Windows 7 under my "games" folder at slave drive. Can't run the game. This screen error shows up when I try to open the game or "Activate New Products - CMSF2" I try with admin rights but is the same.

All other Combat Mission titles works fine here. I have Windows 7 64 with all the patches and C++ libraries updated. 

S.O.S. 😂

Thanks and sorry for my english.

Ouch I don't recognize that error. I am running Win10 now but also run the games from a secondary drive - I did the same in Win7 too. So, what you are doing should work. I think you should open a new support ticket and see if they can help.

Thanks IAnL for reply. I found the solution. Turn off "RivaTuner" from tray (the util for nvidia cards) and C++ error goes away.

BUT now another problem arise, after activating the product I hit PLAY and the screen want to reactivate once again. Will open a support ticket.

I just looked up RivaTuner. It is possible that since one of its features is monitoring they might trigger the DRM's anti tampering features. For the same reason you cannot run a debugger or some other process monitors. Just a theory.

Thanks again IanL, sure is that. Readed in other forums (searching for this subject) that Riva strikes some of the DRM systems.

John replied to my ticket with a new key and all is working now. Time to play. Thanks for your help!
