1. It may be your injector. Left click your injector, and change its compatibility to Vista 32-bit SP1. Combined with Net Framework 4.0, this should work. Run the injector as admin.

3. Finally, the hacks are not patched. I just ran the laptop version on my computer and it works fine.
If this doesn't work, add my msn, and I will troubleshoot with you.
