Installed Bon Voyage today. Tried to run it. "A required security module cannot be activated." Thank you very %$#@^TGFGRE% much SecuROM. After much grief, I discovered Process Explorer was the culprit! Can you believe it? Daemon Tools is A-OK, but a bloody task manager replacement is verboten!

There really needs to be a bloody murder emoticon.

Ha! This was XP! geek I've been avoiding my Vista install because the game is just too slow. It's slow in XP too, but it borders on unplayable in Vista. I need more ram.

Did I mention this crap also freezes my animated cursors? Just running the game. *le sigh*

I didn't know Von Boyage was out already, go figure!

Hi David! I didn't know that Bon Voyage was out until I read it over at Sun Sims. On the other hand, since I probably won't install it before next year at the earliest, for me it's not a major event.

It sounds pretty neat but I'm getting the impression that I will need to upgrade my machine quite a bit before I can run it.
