On August 2, 2016 Microsoft pushed out their "Anniversary Edition" patch for all Windows 10 users. In doing so they removed one of the API functions that some of our trainers relied on. This is reminiscent of the Windows 8 release where Microsoft decided to change an API call that had been used since Windows 1.0 for no apparent reason.
Regardless, this new patch renders some of our trainers unable to run. If you double click on them, they may show up for a millisecond in the taskbar and then close.
We have identified and fixed the following trainers:
Dead Rising 3
Dragon Age 3: Inquisition
Shadow of Mordor
Ryse: Son of Rome
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Planetary Annihilation + TItans
Metal Gear Ground Zeroes
The Golf Club
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare
Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition
Call of Duty: Ghosts
The Evil Within
Metro 2033 Redux
Metro Last Light Redux
Lords of the Fallen
Assassins Creed Unity
If you find any other trainers that need to be fixed, please list them in this thread. We don't anticipate a large number of trainers to be affected as it's only on our older trainer template and only for 64-bit games (which there were not a lot of while using the older template). The fix is simple on our end but the trainers must be recompiled and new version uploaded. Please note that we will get to them as quickly as possible and update the above list as fixes are released.
We again apologize for this inconvenience but we are at the mercy of Microsoft when they decide to make kernel changes for what appears to be no apparent reason or concern about the effect it has on the applications produced by developers.
