Xian Jian 2 on Windows Vista

Hi all, I would appreciate if someone can enlighten me on my problem:

1. I am trying to run Xian Jian 2 on Vista. all attempts have failed so far. I keep getting the error message: Starforce Protection System: To install protection driver you must have administrator privileges.

I am already the administrator!!!

2. In the past when I was not on Vista, I was not able to get past the protection system, even though I entered a valid CD Key. (My vesion is fully licensed and legit)

The only time I ever actually got to play is back in 2003 when the game was first launched... :cry:


Would appreciate it if someone can help me here!
Thanks!

If I remember reading right, PAL games don't work with Vista. Only XP and lower.

But then you said it still wouldn't work when you weren't on Vista so I'm not really sure.

Download this, and use it to replace your original pal2.exe. It will take out the copy protection.

Thanks Rich

The file has a problem though.
It is identified to have a trojan, and my antivirus keeps blocking it.

Does anyone know of a 'cleaner' source?

Thanks....

I've uploaded my file which didn't seem to act as a virus here. Not sure if your anti-virus software will still complain, though.

Hi Whistler, thanks, but basically the file is identical to the one which my anit virus identified as trojan.

Your system's fine with it?

Does anyone else have a similar problem?

It seems that the file is ok with everyone else except your anti-virus...

I've got the same problem - I've got a brand new and legit Xian Jian 2 (Taiwan version), but Starforce isn't letting me play :x

I've tried it on two different laptops (one Windows 7 - that I just finished Xin XJ1 on - and a good-but-old XP machine) and it'll let me install on both but Starforce won't recognise either the legit disc in the CD tray or a copy mounted with Daemon when I try to play. Can anyone supply the crack or even just a direct download to a pre-cracked version of the game? I only want to carry on with my Xian Jian marathon and get them all finished before XJ 5 :cry:

There you go. No Starforce no nothing. Just install and play. Some people complained there's a black screen after u send QiQi away, but that didn't happen to my friends who got it from there after getting irritated at Starforce lol. Maybe it's just luck. Anyway, hope it works for you too.
