    I see what you mean. I tried mounting the ISO in a virtual CD drive. The game installed OK in Windows 11 but when I tried to run it I got the error below. You need either an original CD or a NO-CD crack. I looked but couldn't find a crack for this game.

    Yep, yep. I did the same, and couldn't find a no-CD patch either.

    The Windows repair is included with Windows in the Control Panel under "Reset this PC".
    That is a more destructive 'repair'. A more commonly used largely non-destructive repair is an in-place upgrade repair install - which is why I asked.

    When I press thge Compatibilty Troubleshooter button, nothing happens.
    Just for comparison, pick a different program - an exe file.
    Rt click the exe file, then click Troubleshoot Compatibility.

    Does it run then?

    - has anyone else tried Troubleshoot Compatibility with this program?

    If it fails to run in both cases try these ideas and report the outcome. Thanks.

    I just installed it and ran the Compatibility Troubleshooter... it ran, it chose Vista SP?
    I clicked test the program... still get the SecuROM message.

    Any other ideas why Troubleshoot Compatibility doesn't run in this case? That seems an issue quite separate from Scrabble..

    Dunno. I went into the install directory and right clicked the executable and ran the com. troubleshooter from there.

    I just burned it to a CD... I'm gonna try that.


    Installed it from the CD's executable, then tried to run the game (with the CD in the optical drive)... same SecuROM message.

    Then I uninstalled it and again tried to install it from the CD using the autorun.inf file, and got this message...

    As far as I know... nothing can beat SecuROM except a patch, and very few of them.

    Try installing it under e.g. Windows XP running as a VM.
