Default "You cannot attach a debugger while playing Project 1999."

Err...what?

Tried to come back to the game today, got this error, prevents me from playing. I get it when trying to launch the shortcut on my desktop, Launch_TItanium batch file in the directory, AND WinEQ2. No matter what I try, I get the same error.

What's causing this and how do I fix it? I'm on Windows 7.

Same problem here, turned off all my antivirus and redownloaded everything related to p99 (including my ISOs) and no dice, still getting this error.

I need my fix and don't want to go back to live, any other ideas?

Alright, it is related to anti-virus software. My wife did our taxes with Turbotax earlier and I think it installed McAfee with it or something because it was on my computer. I also have Avast AV and it clashed. I uninstalled McAfee (it never really goes away though), and disabled Avast until reboot, and my game is booting up. I would recommend making sure you don't have multiple anti-virus software programs running and try turning them off to log on.

I had this problem since updating Avast last night. Created an exclusion for P99, and it works now.

I uninstalled McAfee too but still running into this problem. As someone else said above, this problem happened after using Turbotax and I'm not sure how to fix it. I don't have Avast. I use Malware Bytes, HiJackThis, AVG, and Windows Defender or whatever that software is called that comes with a PC.
