Cool Windows® 8 Cliffs of Dover Fix (Version

Hi everyone,

Edit (18/Mar/2015):
Source Code:
For anyone (Delphi developers?) that's interested, I have made the source code on BitBucket public.
Edit (11/Mar/2013):
Change Log:
  1. Additional parameters specified to "CloDer.exe" will be passed onto "Launcher.exe".
  2. Minor enhancements to "CloDer.exe" & "CloDer.dll".
  3. I have left "CloDer.exe" & "CloDer.dll" unpacked (previously I used UPX), this should tone down (+-50%) the false positives from "heuristically challenged" anti-virus products.
*Update: Removed useless DropBox links.
Edit (09/Mar/2013):
Added MEGA download Link.
Edit (20/Nov/2012):
Please find the download link(s) for the Windows® 8 fix at the bottom of this post (this is where you'll find any future updates, if any).
If you have any queries you are more than welcome to PM me.
Original Post (19/Nov/2012):
This is my first post on these forums so I'd like to say hi to everyone.

It's worth nothing that I don't play "IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover" (don't judge me, it's just not my type of game).

Anyway, my friend approached me with a issue at the end of last week regarding "Cliffs of Dover", that it was not playable under Windows® 8 so I said to him I'd have a look at it for him (I finally got around to it yesterday evening).

Good news, I have managed to get it working under Windows® 8.
When I say working I mean to the point where the game says "Steam must be running to play Il-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover.", this is a lot better than crashing silently to the Desktop (since I don't actually own the game I will not proceed beyond this point).

I'm just waiting on my friend to get home this evening (GMT+2) to test that the game does in fact run correctly, after he confirms this I'll release the tool to the masses.

Watch this space, hopefully you'll be back up in the sky in a few short hours.
