    Ehm it's a bit weird: I can't drive any car with the 0.97 TDU2 exe and the universal launcher... this is the same with the old one.

    EDIT: they add a protection online: now you can't play with 0.97 exe. Or this is due to the servers crash idk but It works very well offline.

    Now I successfully play online, using old TestDrive2.exe (v097 build 6)
    but I have a modified v097 exe by me.

    Again, sorry about that, I now get another error message:


    In english, 'A reference has been sent by the server'


    Moreover, my TDU2 registry key is in :
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Atari\TDU2

    since it's a 64 bit OS . Created a copy in other location you've given, but it did not solve the issue

    A lot of problems with registry in this tool
    C# brings a lot of trouble for me...

    C++ is so simple, without problems.

    I want to delete all functions for working with the registry in tool, and I want to use config. file for store settings of tool.
    The user should be independently specify the path to the folder with the game in the tool's settings.

    I'll do it
