Interesting. Vista did not used to do this. I haven't used Vista since 7 came out, and that feature could've been included with the improvements that MS made to Vista since then.

I have unchecked Read-Only from the SWKotOR2 folder, have everything in XP SP2 compatibility mode and as administrator. Also, I did install and reinstall according to the steps in post two. Still no go. Any input would be appreciated.

1) Try using the original swkotor2.exe from the patch instead of the one updated by SecuROM.
2) If that doesn't work, try contacting SecuROM for a new .exe using the link in post 2.

I've never heard of that approach, but I'll most certainly look into it. Your input is appreciated.

Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
