SH2 1.4.1 on Windows 7: SecuROM Update helps 4 Years, 11 Months ago  
I just wanted to share what I found out about Stronghold 2 and Windows 7 64Bit. Actually, the original installation (V1.3) did start on W7. After patching it up to 1.4.1 it didn't work any more. And that's not because the game's crashing but SecuROM displaying some strange error message.

So SH2 works, SecuROM doesn't. At least till SecuROM gets updated. Here's how:

1) Download this file: http://download.securom.com/support/srdiag.zip
2) Open the zip archive
3) Start setup.exe and follow the instructions
4) Start the SecuROM Diagnostic Tool (default: Start --> Programs --> SecuROM --> Diagnostic Tool --> Diagnostic Tool)
5) Put the original CD/DVD into your drive
6) Choose the path to your SecuROM protected application
7) Read the instructions till an Update gets downloaded.

(Translated from a SecuROM support mail)

After that SH2 runs fine on Windows 7.


PS: IMHO, SH2 is old enough for releasing a patch which finally turns off SecuROM. I don't like to carry all CD-ROMS with me all the time (I'm a notebook user).

The game shouldn't need to run in any form of compatibilty mode, as it should work just fine in Vista. Obviously, if it helps with the problems you have that's great news.

My problem is SH 2 running with low frames per seconds, but my hadware is good enough
On my Old System XP, Geforce FX 5900XT, 2GB DDR1 and a sempron procesor with -1,8GHz it works fine, but on my new sytsem with Vista, ATI Radeon XFX HD 4870 with 1GB GDDR 5, 2GB DDR 2 and a AMD ATHLON 64 X2 with -5,6 Ghz it doesent works,.with a ATI Radeon HD 3850 it doesent works, too.
All my other games like C&C RA 3, DoW 2, Crysis, OFP 2 and many more works fine.
I think the problem is Windows Vista.

mh but it's good that i can play SHC, SHK Alpha and SH 1 with out any problems, I love this three games. SHL works fine too, but I dont play it
Have anybody this problem, too?
