I ain’t new to firewalls but when it comes to the component checks it can get a little uhm… complicated.
I have the CPF 188.8.131.52 installed.
I am behind a router.
I have the game America’s Army (free ego-shooter from the US Army)
I have recently installed the free F.E.A.R. Multiplayer version (it doesnt include the singleplayer version)
Anyway, playing FEAR works fine, Using Thunderbird/Firefox works fine. In fact everything works fine except that one problem since I have FEAR installed:
Everytime I am starting America’s Army CPF pops up with the message:
(for details you can view the attached screenshot, its in german but you should be able to comprehend the facts ^.^ )
FEARMP.exe loads dinput8.dll in ArmyOps.exe with the use of GlobalHooks etc.
Now, I have send a support ticket to Sierra to check what they have to say but dont you think that this is a strange behaviour? It doesnt happen with other application or even games I am playing…
dinput8.dll seems to be a directX file. I have scanned my PC with AntiVir and Anti-Ad and whatnot, nothing to be found.
If I deny acces ArmyOps.exe cant connect to the internet at all…
Any ideas what this could be? Is F.E.A.R. checking for pirated software? But why when you start a free game? I have other games (commercial ones) where this doesn’t happen.
