I downloaded the free version of Sam and Max 104. When I click on the Sam and Max shortcut a "reminder" pop up appears and that's it. Nothing more. In this "reminder" I can subscribe for a newsletter. The only way to get rid of this "reminder" is to kill it via the task manager. After that a white screen appears for half a second and aero is turned off. After that the screen disappears and aero is turned on again.
I checked the "run as administrator" check box in the properties but there was no improvement. I found in the FAQ that I should delete the prefs.prop file in the game directory, but doing that there was no improvement either.
What do I have to do to get the game started?
I'm using Vista x64 on an AMD Athlon64 X2 4200+, 3 GB RAM and a GeForce 6600GT (latest drivers)
