Hi All.

My Bro purchased two games recently - 'Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle' and 'Yesterday'.
Neither of them would run on his Windows 8.1 machine.
After much searching we finally found an article on Microsofts site regarding Starforce Protection, stopping games from starting (if that makes sense):-\

Any way, Just wanted to let everyone know that these two game are working a charm now.
All you have to do is download and install update KB2930157 for Windows 8.1.
The update was released on the 10th of March this year and addresses the starforce protection issue.

Thought that I would mention this as It may be helpful to someone else.
