That's odd. Well installing BW for me is just like installing INTO SC1. You choose either original or expansion in the in-game menus

Try the update patch then, just the expansion one that I linked in my post before..hopefully it will remedy the crashing

Data Execution Prevention. Try that.

0nly way I know how to access that is opening Start, typing "advanced system", then "View advanced system settings"

Click Advanced tab, click first Settings button under Performance, Data Execution Prevention tab, add the StarCraft(s) executable Apply 0K and see if that will solve

Nothing appears when I type advanced system :/

edit: I found it in the computer properties. I tried to add Starcraft.exe but I had an error message that I can't deactivate the execution for this program. I checked the option "Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select". Is this what I was supposed to do ?

Yeh that's the option I use

I wonder how's the other option though. I wish DEP just didn't exist

I guess I'll have to go with the virtual machine thing..

It works fine for me for many purposes. I can't imagine dual booting or not using VMs anymore.

What version of Windows 7 are you running? If it is Pro or higher, you can download and install XP Mode, and the VM will be created for you. If you have Home Premium or lower, you'll need VirtualBox, which is also free. Post back which version, and we'll go from there.
