Stubbs the zombie useless in Vista

P
#1
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

I believe the point of sending to you that page, is so that you can download
the beta driver, which should allow Stubbs to work again with Vista
