What works

Installation works just fine. "Config.exe" launches, but on clicking "Setup" (apply) nothing happens and the changes I've made are gone on the next launch. I'm not quite sure if this is normal or not.

What does not

Starting the game puts out: "fixme:spoolsv:serv_main (0 (nil)) err:advapi:service_get_status service protocol error - failed to read pipe r = 0 count = 0!"


What was not tested

The game itself since it doesn't start up.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

I've used the No-CD-fix by "Starfuckers". This is necessary since the game is protected by evil StarForce. I guess there's no chance to run it out of the box.
