Medal of Honor Allied Assualt warchest doesn't launch on Windows 10 64-bit

★★★★ Novice

Can someone please tell me how to get Medal of Honor Allied Assault Warchest to work on Windows 10 64-bit? I keep getting an error message at launch that says, Medal of Honor Allied Assault has stopped working and needs to close. How can I get it to work?

@mcmike89 Hi again,

 

In that case I will copy and paste you the excerpt:

 

Spoiler
In addition to the changes that are listed for the vulnerabilities that are described in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-097, this security bulletin addresses a defense-in-depth update for the secdrv.sys driver, a third-party driver. The update turns off the service for the secdrv.sys driver. This may affect the ability to run some older games.

To learn more about the vulnerabilities, see Microsoft Security Bulletin MS15-097.

[...]

Known issues in this security update

  • After you install this security update, some programs may not run. (For example, some video games may not run.) To work around this issue, you can temporarily turn on the service for the secdrv.sys driver by running certain commands, or by editing the registry.

    Note When you no longer require the service to be running, we recommend that you turn off the service again.

    Warning This workaround may make a computer or a network more vulnerable to attack by malicious users or by malicious software such as viruses. We do not recommend this workaround but are providing this information so that you can implement this workaround at your own discretion. Use this workaround at your own risk.

    To do this, type the following commands at an elevated command prompt. You should press Enter after you type each command.
    • To disable the driver's service, type the following command:
      sc config secdrv start= disabled
    • To set the driver's service to manual, type the following command:
      sc config secdrv start= demand
    • To enable the driver's service (and to set it to automatic), type the following command:
      sc config secdrv start=auto
    • To manually start the driver's service, type the following command:
      sc start secdrv
    • To manually stop the driver's service, type the following command:
      sc stop secdrv
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows


Or, you can edit the registry directly. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the following subkey in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\secdrv
  3. Right-click Start, and then click Modify.
  4. In the Value data box, do one of the following:
    • Type 4 to disable the driver's service, and then click OK.
    • Type 3 to set the driver's service to manual, and then click OK.
    • Type 2 to set the driver's service to automatic, and then click OK.
  5. Exit Registry Editor.

[...]

Unfortunately this is quite technical, let me know if you have any further questions.

 

Cheers,

Nils

@mcmike89 Hi,

 

This is a tricky one. Please read the "Known issues in this security update" section in this article from Microsoft carefully and follow the commands required for the workaround in order to get the game running on Windows 10: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3086255

 

Let me know how you get on.

 

Cheers,

Nils

@EA_Nils I click on the link, but theres nothing there, it says try searching what you're looking for. The link you gave me to try and fix the problem is a bad link. Here's a picture of the error message I get when I launch the game. I'm attaching it to this post.

You or your Internet Provider made an error.  His link is working fine using my browser and my Internet Provider: 

 

" MS15-097: Description of the security update for the graphics component in Windows: September 8, 2015 " 

 

All but one single MoH game is now too old to run easily on the newer OSes, and special adjustments are required, as is true in this case.

@mcmike89 Alright if the link does not work for you, you could type in the following into the search bar on the page: 

MS15-097: Description of the security update for the graphics component in Windows: September 8, 2015

 

 

Let me know whether that let's you access the page.

 

As for the error message, can you try looking at your reliability monitor following the steps below:


1. Press Win+R to open the run box
2. Type perfmon /rel to open the reliability monitor.

This opens a window where you can click on the error's visually shown (white X in red circle) to find the latest one related to Medal of Honor. Click show details and then paste the info that is listed in there in here.

 

 

Cheers,

Nils

@EA_Nils What am I looking at in this page? I still get nothing. Gosh, I don't know why Origin would even sell this game if it doesn't work on the newer OS systems. It makes no sense. I'm sorry, I'm just lost right now. I'll just try the other method which hopefully is an easier way to get this game to work without headaches!

So by doing this method, I'm risking my computer to become vulnerable to getting viruses or spyware/melware?
