Sorry if this topic has already been discussed but I am pretty sure I have tried everything mentioned on this website. I have windows 7 64 bit - AMD phenom II x2 - 4 GB RAM - plenty of hard disk space and a ATI Radeon HD 5500 series video card. To begin with I installed the game as normal and when I tried to run it, it told me to run it as administrator which I did it then rebooted my pc which for some reason made my pc boot unsuccessfully I selected to fix the problem and when it came on age of pirates had been removed Following this I tried a few different things; I ran it in compatibility mode - same thing I installed it in a different folder rather than the default program files folder - same thing I tried this as it said at some point there was unsigned drivers which on this version of windows 7 are not allowed (probably the problem) - This brought up a small loading screen and then did the same thing as before Q) Is there a way to install AOP without Starforce? A) Yes download this file HERE unrar then replace the .exe in the AOP install folder I am running out of ideas and really need some help so thanks in advance to anyone who can fix my problem!!!
