Thats why i keep my old pc and win7 64buts until; it is +++++, i have to get a new setup with evil windozer 10, but i have to prepare to have lots of good old games not running on windozer 10 .... only new games ( of which many new games arent worth 1$ imho, cause lots of meh games have been released over the last 5 years )
Anyway, i replied cause my ja2 stopped working all of a sudden under w7 64 bits, it worked a charm but it seemed something messed up, and for reasons unknow rundll in the ugly WOW folder seems to be running at 25% of my quadcore which is a lot, i thought i had a seen a solution in this forum so i am looking for it now ....

I noticed the clcd16 and clcd32 i remeber these badgiuys to be present on the retail cd i own:

assuming the game was made DRM free, why the ... are the clockspel related dll present ? whatf if they were 'disabled' by m$? seems M$ disabled some ' drm' causing games to break, they did because of security :D
if M$ really cared about security at all, they should stop with windozer :D that is one major securit leak/ hole :D
Anyway, fact is only my all time favorite games have problems, other games i own ( usually inferrior new releases)
seem to run a charm.
