The only thing I can think of is that it requires a foreign copy of Windows then.
Either that or it's a pirated game that has not been released yet, in which case you should wait for the rtm version because then the major bugs will be fixed.

As for the rig, it's DIY system composed of an OC'ed Q9550 with 8GB RAM on a Gigabyte EP-45-DS3R mobo and an OC'ed nVidia 8600GTS card. Running Win 7 Ultimate 64b (6.1, Build 7600).

Been running this rig for a couple of years so I don't think it's a hardware issue.

The original question had to do with what in Windows 7 would cause a game to run, and then not run again for a while. Then it would suddenly start running again.

It would seem to me that if there was a compatibility issue or a DirectX issue, it would either not run, or crash when running. In this case, when it runs, everything seems to be fine. It just won't start consistently.

Oh BTW, Sleestak thanks for the heads up with XP Mode. I uninstalled it.

WDC Green: 750 GB runs Hot, 4 TB runs Cool ???
I have two external hard drives, both in Vantec NexStar3 USB enclosures. The older 750 GB WDC Green drive runs HOT to the touch, the 4 TB, and the 2 TB before that, run pretty warm but never hot. Why might this be, and would that much heat cause earlier than necessary drive failure?
