Might require an update of the GAME as well as the driver.

Email them and ask them to use something that is more compatible
than starforce, or nothing at all so more people will buy the
game.

I don't get why the game has a copy protection at all since it is available as a free download from their site. With the other TrackMania titles I understand it but not with TrackMania Nations.

Thanks btw for the new driver link. I just had to boot into my linux livecd to remove the driver TrackMania Nations installed which blocked my windows from booting.

Greetings,

Hi,

Even if you are using an administrator account, you have to right click on
the Trackmania Nation Shortcut and launch it with the Administrator option.

I tried it and that's now working :)

You have also to dowload the last star-force update here :

Have fun ;)

I tried to install TM Nations Forever, however upon executing the installation file, the 'Extraction process' remained at 0%, for at least 2 hours, then to cancel it I needed to open Task Manager...
I did have internet connection, and I tried re-downloading the installation file and trying again - to no avail.
From LoBi0's comment, I assume that others are at least getting past the installation phase.
This is a newer version of TM Nations, so I'm hoping that it would be Vista Friendly, but if anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ben
