      Normally you can’t launch Dirt 3 game in windows server due to SEHOP feature enabled – structured exception handler overwrite protection. This one is an important security feature that you should leave on except for certain safe processes like “dirt3.exe”. It is very easy to disable/enable SEHOP per process, as shown in http://blogs.technet.com/:

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionImage File Execution Optionsprocess.exe

      “DisableExceptionChainValidation”=dword:00000000 or dword:00000001

      Value Dword:00000000 enables Exception Chain Validation for process.exe, Dword:00000001 disables it. In our case for DiRT 3 create and run .reg file as shown bellow:

      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionImage File Execution Optionsdirt3.exe]


      You’ll find Dirt 3 Sehop.reg, ProfileImport.exe, and gfwlivesetup.exe in Dirt 3 Sehop.zip.

      gfwlivesetup.exe – installs games for windows live, necessary to play Dirt 3
      ProfileImport.exe – creates 5 empty slots so you can save your game progress with a local profile without having to log in with your Live credentials
      Dirt 3 Sehop.reg – disables SEHOP for “dirt3.exe”.

      Have a nice race. 🙂
