I see.

I recall some issue with windows 7 and mods. I forget what it was called, but it was technically a security feature to stop programs from running or modifying memory. It was a big deal with win7 came out. I suppose it's possible that is what is happening here. It was DEP (Data Execution Prevention). I wonder if that could be why?

I don't know, but the Ascension Of Duran works fine on my win7, and i didnt encountered problem with firegraft patches (since its modern)

Also, if its Stardraft/graft, doesn't it mean i need an older OS? i mean Win95.
Ya know, sometimes i remember old times when Dune 2000 was rocking, when God of War II was the best game, when
starcraft was the best strategy among everything....

I always ask myself: why many people dont play this legendary games, why they want play new ones?
And the answer is: they don't love games bro, they don't love them....

I wouldn't think so. But different programs may interact with DEP in different ways. I wouldn't rule it out entirely, though. A lot of old modding apps don't work on windows 7 properly or at all.

Well i think Stardraft doesnt have disguise code or something else to avoid that, since its old. Firegraft does have that, since i can start it on my win7 without problems.

What do you mean? patch_rt is typically the mpq that contains patch files. I don't think any other files besides dlls and exes are changed.

Not sure. I used SCV selector myself. I think that should support the newest version. I am not up to date with that software in general.

Well, in win7 there was encountered a problem with color, it seems was not showing propetly but its started anyway. On Official Blizzard site, they have troubleshoot about that and it helps. But the real problem of rainbow color exists in registry. i need to find it so real colors will appear.
