Hi Foverosiv I bought an original sealed copy from amazon (£9)

I can install and activate but not play !!? sooo frustrating.... who would of thought windows vista games would'nt work with the next version of windows !!! ( seems perfectly logical to me - backward compatibility n all that lol !)

First pc i have had in 7yrs as fancied a gaming laptop, after being a macbook pro owner for 8yrs+ now (mac = hassle free :) )

sorry, was thinking about another post :/ 
try to disable desktop composition & visual theme on the compatibility thing
and run as administrator if you havn't done it already.
