just a reminder for all those who are new to vista trainers or vista games and this game especially:

1) vista has built-protection to avoid programs writing to each other's memory. see below for work around-


VISTA NOTES REGARDING THIS TRAINER AND OTHER TRAINERS!
------------------------------------------------------

Vista has alot of built-in protections which is a good thing. However it is not helpful to trainers since it blocks trainer programs from writing to the memory of another program (such as a game). Therefore
you have to take some steps to allow Vista to let your trainer do it's magic. So follow the following steps:

1) right click on the trainer .exe and select Properties
2) select the Compatability tab
3) check mark "Run this program as administrator" under Privilege Level
4) click Apply and then OK

This will allow your trainer to have the "rights" to write to the game's memory. Otherwise you may hear the sounds that the trainer is working but will not see the effects! This is very important.
-------------------------------------------------------

for me all i had to do was set the trainer to allow "run this program as administrator". i made no other changes to the trainer or the game and it worked fine. also, this is important:

RUN THE GAME FIRST and then alt-tab out and THEN RUN THE TRAINER.

For some, alt-tab might be a problem. A workaround is to go to the options section, select Windowed Mode ON, then you should be able to get to the trainer and start it. Then you can go back to the Graphics Option and reset it to Windowed Mode OFF.

if you aren't modifying your trainer .exe priveledges like we described above then it won't work, so make sure you are doing that!

best,
Cal

just an FYI for anyone who doesn't know. An easy way to just avoid these issues altogether is to go into the start menu, type msconfig into the search function and press enter. go over to tools and scroll down to disable UAC and press launch. after this is done press the X on the command prompt that comes up, and then OK on msconfig. Restart your machine, no more annoying "do you really wanna do this" types of prompts

Heir heir, just turn of UAC. But you do get warned, so its at you're own risk. But what in Vista doesn't warn you, right!
