Postal 2, Postal 2 Share The Pain, and Postal 2 ApocalypseWeekend Vista Play Fix

This does not apply to the games in the Postal Fudge Pack

They all install...but can't run afterwards....reason being the version of Starforce (the cd validation/protection software) on the CD doesn't work with Vista...

To fix it you can try installing the updated version of the driver: http://www.star-force.com/support/drivers/....but why would you want to do that when theres a more permenent fix that works for everyone.

1. First make sure your game is patched....download one of the following (depending on your game):
Postal 2 1337 patch:

Postal 2 Share The Pain 1409 patch:

2. Download one of these...again depending on your game:

Postal 2 Apocalypse Weekend Fixed:

3. Go to the install folder (usually c:/program files/postal2/system/ or c:/program files/postal2stp/system/ or c:/program files/postal2/ApocalypseWeekend/System/)...copy the fixed files from the zip into the folder...if you are asked to replace click yes.

If you have Share The Pain and Apocalypse Weekend for example you will need to do it for both.
