Windows 7 How to fix IPX problem?

#1
I installed Need for speed underground 2 on my local network. It's OK to play on each PC . But when we try to join each other, We got an IPX network error and we can't play it. I would like to know how to fix the IPX problem on window 7.


Thanks

as far as I recall IPX was taken out off vista/win7 as was very old and unsecure, you might also have issues as directplay component was also taken out as well, not sure if it's patchable. Hopefully more experienced adviser will respond.

I'd had a sniff about on google, and indeed IPX is not featured in Vista/Win7 at all, however there does seem to be a hack method to enable it for 32bit versions at least.... see here, however there's no comeback if screws ya system up as it's not an official patch etc.
