    Stubbs the zombie useless in Vista

    Is there a way to get this working in Vista ?
    I asked a question of the makers, "Aspyr" and got a polite "Couldn't give a
    toss" answer.
    If this is the reaction of the game makers, is there any hope of ever
    playing this game on Vista ?

    You're SOL. Stubbs the Zombie uses Starforce for copy protection.
    Starforce is incompatible with Vista and none of the Starforce games work
    under Vista.

    What's SOL ???? The Sun ? Cheers, mate - praise indeed !
    Irritating, some stinking game protection stopping it working. So, in
    essence, you're honest, you buy the game, and the sh*t they put in the game
    buggers it up.

    We call Starforce 'Starfarce' ;-) And we have boycotted anything that uses
    it.

    Is this a UAC issue ? Or no matter what this doesn't work ? What other games
    use it ? I'm wanting to play now

    This is *false*. I play Silent Hunter 3 which uses StarForce, I just had to
    install the driver for it from
    http://www.star-force.com/protection.phtml?c=83&id=963
