    Has anyone had problems running downloaded shockwave unlimited games once
    installed in Vista? I keep getting an error message that says "
    Keyhole DRM" and it shuts down the program. I fixed the problem once before
    but I can't remember how I did it, and, since my version of Vista is in
    Spanish, trying to figure it out has become difficult.

    Anyone with similar issues? Please let me know.

    Thanks much,

    seached the web still no answers to this keyhole drm shut down
    - would that be the decoder I had to pay to have downloaded because vista did
    not have it - or perhaps another flaw in the great vista world

    Well, DRM is digital right management. It's basically saying that it cannot
    authenticate you as the rightful owner or as someone having the rights to
    play said games. When I hear that error message I think of the DRM
    authentication as a literal key/lock. Insert key, if it fits just fine and
    the tumblers fall into place then you can unlock the door.

    Did you attempt going to and putting in the error? That
    should be your first step in troubleshooting anything.

    If you cannot find a solution re-post here and I'll see what I can find out
    about it. Where did these flash games come from?
