    I have a toshiba satellite laptop with windows vista haome premium installed.
    I Installed Legacy of Kain Defiance. When I try to run game I get a message
    "conflict with the disc emulator software detected" and the game will not
    run. What does it mean and what is solution?

    There are only a few things I can think of that could cause the problem:

    1. you're running daemon tools (or any other emulation software like alcohol
    2. you're running nero burning rom
    3. Starforce (the cd validation/protection software) isn't working with Vista.

    Disable the programs and try running the game again. In the case of
    Starforce download and install:

    Hi there,
    I just registered this forum to tell you to disable User Access
    Control. Legacy Of Kain: Defiance will work now.

    Note that UAC is there for a reason, I'm not saying you should not disable
    it (I did) but disabling it is something that should only be done by people
    who understand the risks.

    I don't know the details of LOK:D but in many cases by installing the game
    somewhere besides "c:\program files" you can get the game to work just fine
    (that is a specially locked down set of folders when UAC is on).

    I'd have to agree, just set Legacy of Kain to run as admin by default.
    Should resolve any issues. You could also install LoK into a public
    folder (like what WoW does) or some other non-secure folder.

    I re-enabled it on all my systems recently, it doesn't cause any issues,
    and I figure if a program doesn't run correctly with it on (unless it's
    an old game I really want to play), it's just not worth the risk because
    some sloppy coder can't keep his hands out of protected windows space.
