I persuaded him to get 2142 Deluxe and when he has installed and patched it with 1.5 full its crashing to desktop immediatly upon run.
It throws an erro thats new to me, it reports a conflict with emulation software.
In theory video, sound and dx drivers are all up to date and installing 2142 deluxe and patching 1.50 is correct way.
Aparently securom can be a culprit and there is a fixed exe for this problem but its not available to W7 users.
I cant help as I cant afford the time hassle of migrating to W7 yet.

There is a patch from SecuROM to fix this, get it from SecuROM , it's a zip and probably includes instructions.
The emulation message was caused by a conflict between SecuROM and some old firmware on DVD players especially Samsung. SecuROM fixed this after Update 1.50 was released which is why they have a new exe file on their website.
I wonder if updating the DVD firmware would also help? That might be the first thing to try as it's not going to patch anything on the PC and if the firmware is old updating it is a good idea and might stop further issues with other software.
Please download a new BF2142.EXE from the link.
Rename your current one to:
C:\PROGRAM FILES\ELECTRONIC ARTS\BATTLEFIELD 2142 DELUXE EDITION\BF2142.EXE.OLD
Extract the downloaded file into the application path and start the new application.
