Sounds like you're getting bit by the Copy protection of the Disc.Have you
checked to see if there are any patches for your game ?

Have you tried right clicking on the desktop short cut and choosing run as
administrator ? (See example)
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Have you looked for patches for your game ?

Finally, without promoting piracy, have you looked over at gamecopyworld.com
to see if there is a cracked EXE, that let's you play without the Disc ?
Might be your only hope.

I want to say that HL2:lost coast was giving me that outdated driver error
when running under Vista64. Funny enough, none of the other games I have
tried (Quake 2 WarCraft 3), have giving me an out of date driver message.
just HL2.

So when you say doesn't run, do you mean it still does nothing ? Or does ti
flash for a second and then go back. Look around in your KOTOR folder and
see if it has any kind of log file, that might point you to where you
problem is.

What video drivers are you using ?

what it doeas is when i click play the pic of the ebon hawk comes up th
spinning disc cursor comes up like its loading the game, then the pi
goes away and th cursor is still left there. it will stay there until
restart the computer. ya i have updated it, did nothing. there are n
error logs since it doesnt crash it just never starts. i have trie
both of the visas drivers from the nvidia site the beta and the full.
recently got the scan the game does to pass saying my drivers are fin
but i still get the same problem when i try to run i

Maybe your newsfeeder cutoff the other messages, but he stated above that he
always runs as Administrator.

Cool, glad you came back and told us of the fix. I've not had an issue, but
I've read other forums where Vista and some copy protections where just not
happy together. I think Starforce was the one that got the most complaints.

I'm not promoting piracy, but once again, it seems the copy protection only
stops the honest people from playing the game they bought
