Game will not start. Dialog box with message comes up:
'A required security module can not be activated. This program can not be executed.'

Program was running OK but I could not see the information on the time the next feast was schedled so I uninstalled, reinstalled on same drive, ran patch to upgrade to V 1.3.1 and problem occured.

Uninstalled then reinstalled on different hard drive, ran patch to upgrade to V 1.3.1 but same message comes up.

Help!

Hi RRose00.

You get that message because the SecuROM copy protection for the game detects Virtual Drive software on your computer. Disable the software in Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) so it's not running on your computer and try again to start the game.
Here's a list of software that might trigger SecuROM:

Alcohol 120%
BlindWrite
Daemon Tools
Game-Jack
CloneCD
Game Jackal
Xoom Game Clone
CDSpace
Virtual CD
Fantom CD
Anti-Blaxx
GetRight
Virtual Drives
Speaking Clock
Nero ImageDrive

If you don't have any of above software installed or disabling it doesn't work, while having the original Stronghold 2 CD/DVD in the drive reboot your computer, then right-click either the Stronghold 2 icon on the desktop or Stronghold2.exe and click Launch Analysis and a file named AnalysisLog.sr0 will be created and placed in C:. Zip the file (with WinZIP, 7-zip or a similar program) and send the file as an attachment to [email protected]

PCDania, what might these applications be called in the task manager?

That depends on what filename the manufacturer of each program has choosen and that can be anything they like. You could write down the name of each file you see in Task Manager and then search your entire harddisk for them one at a time. Make sure you have configured Windows Explorer so you can see all hidden files and folders and the file extension of all known files. You do this in the Tools --> Foldersettings menu in Windows Explorer. After changing the settings click the Use on all folders button (or what its called), click OK, close Windows Explorer and open it again, then start searching for the files using the Search function.

When finding a file on the harddisk, rightclick it and click properties and then look on the Version pane. If there's no Version pane search Google for the file.

I have been emailing SecuRom for support and they have fixed my problem. If anyone still has this problem, email them right away.

A Required Security Module Cannot Be Activated 3000

I don't seem to get any of these 2 to work. When I try to start Star Wars: Empire at War with CureROM it says the following:
'Emulator detected!
Please deactivate virtual drive and emulation software.'

and if I start it with SR7Stop it says:
'A required security module can not be activated. This program can not be executed.'
They say that I should use CureROM so I'm quite sure I use CureROM the wrong way, so can someone make a short guide on how to use CureROM for me? I mount with Deamon Tools 4.
