A recent Windows update for Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 has disabled the SECDRV.SYS service used by safedisc-protected discs. This means that many of our boxed products will no longer install with the default setting that Microsoft have enabled.
Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 users:
In order to install from our discs you will need to download the tool below and run it before trying to launch the disc installation.
Download: SecDRV Tool (236KB)
This tool will let you Start and Stop the SECDRV service. With the service running the disks should work correctly.
Windows 10 users:
This tool can not be used with Windows 10. Currently there is no solution for this issue for users of Windows 10 where Microsoft have completely removed this service.
