No as this is a dll file with methods inside of it that was probably updated in the new version of IE10. If the older version is missing methods that are required by IE10 then it will crash with a runtime error. An old exe file usually gets away with it as it has minimal impact on the methods that exist but simply use them in a different manner.

I posted a TuT on here how to fix the trainers to work again with Windows 7 and 8. I dont think PM got around to posting it. Check my profile and look in the Dragon Age Awakening area to see it.

i can barley call that a fix ;(
Removing IE10, hiding the update and installing IE9 is just downgrading the browser (and urlmon.dll is part of the browser and thus gets downgraded..); not really a fix imho

It is if you wish to use the old trainers again.

We're not going to go through and update thousands of old trainers to work with a new update in which Microsoft changed a core function that has been in use since IE1. We have already updated the most recent version of most trainers to be compatible and so you can update your games and use it. If you find a most recent trainer for a game that has not been updated, you can PM Caliber and he will look into it.

Thanks Bigrob7605,
I tracked down your blog about the fix and got my old trainers to finally work again. I knew about the "Turn windows features on or off" but totally forgot about the "View installed Updates". Everyone says the same thing about downgrading IE, but they all left out a critical detail, Removing IE 10.0 from windows features isn't sufficient. I had to remove IE 10.0 from the updates section as well. then went back into "windows features" and reinstalled IE 8 (default for my windows 7). updated to Ie 9 via windows update and trainer is still working. For people who are not sure, read "Bigrob7605 Trainer crashing on load Tut" blog in detail.

I rarely if ever use IE as a web browser so version/security isn't too much a concern. I use mozilla at least, so my personalization of my browser remains the same. For those who are still using IE as their main web browser, I suggest people use a 3rd party browser not just because of urlmon.dll issue, but overall for most things and only use IE for basic things like network testing, or windows updates etc... especially if you're worried about your IE being breached because of lack of updates and so on..

Edit: I forgot to mention, trainer still crashes for me if I click away from the trainer onto another window/screen while the trainer is loading up.. Regardless what version of IE I'm using. Trainer likes his priority gotta let 'em lock n load fully before switching tasks but other than that trainers works fine
