Sins of a Solar Empire on Win2K?

By jwdR1

  1. I purchased Sins of a Solar Empire and found out too late Win2K is not supported. (I knew it wasn't officially supported but I was lead to believe the retail version would at least install). I see there's a few folks who have had success in getting WinXP only games running on Win2K, so I'm hoping someone might have some suggestions on getting Sin's installed.

    When I attempt to install, I get a pop-up that says the game requires at least XP and that's as far as it goes. Is there a way (registry entry perhaps) that I can trick the install program into thinking I've got XP?

    I appreciate any suggestions anyone has.

    Ok, someone pointed me to the solution to my problem over on the Stardock forums. I'll post a link to the solution in a bit but I have to get my post count > 3 :D
