I tried launching Crysis 1, but this error pops up whenever I do: "This application is not compatible with the installed operating system.
Please upgrade to Windows 98SE, Windows 2000 or better."

 

I have Windows 8 Professional, Intel i7-3770K, 8GB RAM, nVidia GTX 680. I bought Crysis in Amazon. All was running fine until yesterday.

 

If this is a SecuROM issue,

Spoiler
then you are a POS company EA. I pirated Crysis in 2009, but now I have a McJob, I decided buying games is the right thing to do. No, I think we were right all along. We should not support POS companies like EA and never buy any product they make. Instead let us patronize their competition instead.
