I recently upgraded my system to windows 7. However, when i reinstalled I got the notification that the Tages SA driver causes instability to the system and thus has been disabled. Is there a patch for win7 compability or is there a way round this? It worked fine on Vista ( quelle surprise ;)

Welcome to TSF

Do you need Tages SA to access games as I did a bit of research into your problem and found it was a CD authenticity checker but I wasn't sure if your game would run without it or not...

Sorry to double post but after some extensive research I'm afraid you cannot run these games on Windows 7.

The only way you can play these games is if you have two hard drive and a dual booter (Set to XP or Vista - which one you choose to install).

You may wonder why i said you will need more then 1 Hard Drive instead of Partitions, this is to do with the OSes wanting the C:\ drive but they cannot both have it and this causes a problem with the dual boot...

You can install OSes on a different drive than C:\ as my Windows is installed on F:\
It all depends on which hard drive is your Master and which is your Slave.

I've just been told by someone (wrench97) that a newer driver is out so I thought I would post the link. Should fix you problem, ignore my above posts...

http://www.tagesprotection.com/main....ge=minimum.htm

Download the driver and it will replace the other one ;)
