Many games are incompatible due the copy protection put on the disks won't run on Windows 7.. Starforce being a major culprit.

So you have to bypass this by installing a no cd patch. Like with Silent Hunter III - I had to install via the setup.exe, patch to the latest revision, then apply a no cd patch and replace that with the original *.exe

If there is one for your game it will be here : GameCopyWorld - Mirrors - No-CD, No-DVD Patches, Game Fixes, Trainers & Cheats
