Luxor Won't Activate Windows 7 Ultimate x64

[Post New]by cgos on Feb 20, 10 1:52 PM
I have three other BFG's that activated without a hitch. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 edition. I found this in the Windows Event logs:

Faulting application name: fhfpncp.exe, version: 1.0.5.34, time stamp: 0x4a04d33e
Faulting module name: apphelp.dll, version: 6.1.7100.0, time stamp: 0x49eea4c3
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x0000d335
Faulting process id: 0xc68
Faulting application start time: 0x01cab274ad203faa
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Luxor\fhfpncp.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Windows\system32\apphelp.dll
Report Id: eaec2234-1e67-11df-beb8-00238b6195d7

I get the same error everytime I try to activate Luxor. There are lots of possible causes but since the other games installed without a problem, I think that perhaps Luxor is too old and perhaps uses certain programming techniques that violate Data Execution Prevention rules. As a result, I think DEP prevents Luxor from running. Has anyone else encountered this?

I have had the same problem since Dec. of 09 when I got a new computer with Win 7. I was told they have to upgrade the game to work on Win 7 but it has been a while!!!!!!

Dang! I wish they'd hurry with the update - I miss this game! Seems to be the same issue with Luxor 2.
