    I ceated some profiles from desktop shortcuts with GameJackal and everything was working fine, after i installed version the desktop shortcuts now open GameJackal instead of launching the games, even if i delete and recreate the GameJackel profiles or the desktop shortcuts GameJackal still opens instead of launching the games, games still launch ok if i launch them from within GameJackal, is there anyone else noticed this issue?

    I have found another but very strange bug with GameJackal, when GameJackal is running in the system tray and i try to login to MY Account on the website Vista's Internet Explorer 7 crashes, if i right click and exit GameJackal i can login to My Account on the website without issue, below is how i tested this.

    1) IE7 closed, GameJackal running in system tray, open IE7, login to My Account at = IE7 crash

    2) IE7 closed, GameJackal NOT running in system tray, open IE7, login to My Account at = No crash & successful login

    This was tested on Vista Home Premium 32bit and Inernet Explorer 7 at least 20 times, also this never happened with GameJackal, this issue only showed up when i updated GameJackel to version, i have re-installed GameJackal because this issue is not present in version

    The screenshot below is one of many problem reports from Windows when this issue accured, as you can see the Fault Module Name is 12380HSW.dll which can only be found in C:\Program Files\SlySoft\Game Jackal and the Fault Module Version is which again is related to the new beta version of Game Jackal.

    Did you fix SecurROM support on vista? I will test it and post results.

    In both .570 and the new beta, my shortcuts do nothing. I run them, and nothing happens.

    Edit: Sadly, all my SecurROM games still do not work without a CD.

    C:\Program Files\SlySoft\Game Jackal\GameJackal.exe

    An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file.
    DeleteFile failed; code 5.
    Access is Denied.

    I am an administrator using windows vista. Not sure why I am receiving this error during installation.

    EDIT: DOH! Duh, GJ was running... The installation should probably prompt to close Game Jackal...

    None of them work? Very strange, all current Securom titles should work with the beta.

    Thanks for the update, but unfortunately, Kaspersky Internet Security finds a trojan horse, which is, I assume, most likely a false alert:
    gefunden: trojanisches Programm Trojan.Win32.Madtol.d (Modifikation)	URL:

    Ok, I will do more SecurROM testing in this beta.

    And no, none of the shortcuts I tell game jackal to make do anything. The computer just sits there.

    Provided you downloaded from Slysoft's website, yes, that is a false alert.

    Well I have tried 3 times with this update to get a working profile for Bioshock but so far have been unable to.

    If you post that it does not work, can you also give details such as the error message you receive etc.

    For me (with Bioshock) it's just the standard "No disc Inserted. Please insert the original..." securom message that you get if you try and play without the disc in the drive...
