Cant Run MapleStory Under Virtual Machine

Updates, Patches, Tech Forum Talk about MS Updates, patches, tech

Hi everyone =)
After the last maintenance check I tried running MapleStory and a window opened up that said that MapleStory can't run under a virtual machine. The window's title was "Themida". No idea what that is ..
I'm running MapleStory using VMWare Fusion on my Mac on my Windows XP virtual machine. Is anyone experiencing the same problem? Is anyone running MapleStory successfully under a Windows 7 virtual machine? Thanks a lot.

This is why nexon made it so you can't play Maple on a Mac. They hate Mac users.[/quote]

Not sure why I found that funny considering I'm a Mac user. Lol. I don't believe they HATE Mac users. It's just that Macs aren't gaming computers. Lol.
Still bummed about this whole situation though. There's one downside to having a Mac. Lol

alright *NOW ITS CONFIRMED*

Maplestory will work on Parallels v5 (not sure about any other version)
I just got it to work by first reinstalling the Parallels and then Maplestory

If you previously used any VMware program, you have to choose to NOT transfer infomation from the VMware into your Parallel
That step is crucial because the second time I reinstalled, it worked perfectly and I did not transfer VMware infomation
Although not transferring will cause you to redownload any application or program you previously had on VM, its worth the mapling

The game is actually horribly laggy, idk if its a Parallels problem or the game just lags 10x more now[/quote]

How wonderful.. Time to try. ~ Because All I did was install Parallels v.5 and nothing else. Lol.

The following registry edit works for VMware Workstation on PC. Not tested on Mac but it should work as well.
Turn on your VM and start up windows. Open regedit and find the following
HKLM/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}/0000 DriverDesc
Change the DriverDesc's value to anything.

As with all registry edits, make backup/export, not responsible if you mess up, etc.[/quote]

Thanks for this. I expect EMS to get this update somewhere in the near future to and then I'll try this to keep using VMWare.

i'm using parallels 4.0.6630 for windows and i'm fairly sure it gets past the themida error but i get an "unspecified error" when running the game due to the way parallels does the video card y'all on macs aren't getting this error?

Is this registry edit within the VM or within Windows? Cause they both seem to have it.
Edit: I tried it in VMWare, it didn't work, I still got the same error.

I've never been able to run it with sandboxy unless I ran GameLauncher, Right-Click, "Run Sandboxed".
Try that if your virtual machine is like that. Hope I helped. C:

You can Sandbox Maplestory? I thought Sandboxie didn't support most games?

It's worked before. I have to note that it crashes faster though for some reason, so I don't recommend it. Really no point in sandboxing it.

I get the hackshield initialization error whenever I try it.
