A year ago or so I purchased a game from Oberon media, which worked fine
until a few weeks ago when I could no longer launch it. I would get the error
message "Game launcher has stopped working."

After fruitless email exchanges with Oberon Media (whose customer service
did their utmost to help me but seemed just as baffled by the issue), I
searched far and wide online tonight and I found a solution, which I copied
and will post here for information in case it will be of help to someone
else--this solution comes straight from Oberon Media, go figure since they
weren't able to help with a tech solution

Still having problems with your Game Launcher loading in Vista? Thanks to
Oberon Media techs the problem has been resolved (at least for me). Try this:

If you are receiving the DRM activator error message do the following to
correct the issue.
1 - Left click on Start
2.- Right click on Computer
3 - Left click on Properties 4 - Left click on Advanced System Settings
5 - Under Performance click on Settings
6 - Left click on Data Performance Settings (on my computer the tab said
Data Execution Prevention)
7 - Click on TURN ON DEP FOR ESSENTIAL WINDOWS PROGRAMS AND SETTINGS ONLY.
8 - Click on Apply and then OK.

UAC: (User Account Control)
Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll
see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it.
Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer.

Good Luck!

Re: Solution for "Game launcher has stopped working"

Hello! I had the same problem, but the source causing the launcher stopping was that I had a program in my system with the same name Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC 2009 - (launcher.exe) and they were conflicting with each other. So Iíve just disabled the Uniblue SpeedUpMyPC 2009 in start up programs. My problem was resolved.
Hope this may help anyone.
Regards,
Anatolijs
