Has anyone got CMR05 working under Windows 8 or 7 ?

    After installing the game from the retail dvd and with or without the 1.1 patch and with or without a no-dvd exe, I can change all settings and I can also start a single race, career and championship. But as soon as one race is finished, I cannot go further. I see "Continue" on my screen, but there is nothing I can do then. Hitting "Enter" does nothing and the game is frozen. I can only exit with Ctrl+Alt+Del. or with Alt.+Tab and going to Task Manager.

    As I said, I tried everything. With or without the 1.1 patch and with or without a no-dvd exe. I also tried a pirated version but the problem is exactly the same. Various compatibility modes don't help either. I also searched for Starforce with the removal tool and in the registry but nothing is found then.
    Strange thing is that I also have CMR04 and that plays fine without a problem, although it is an older game. Of course I can stick with CMR04, but somehow I can't stand it that I cannot get 05 working. And doing a search with Google I find a few cases where someone got it working.

    Has anyone here a solution ? Thanks in advance.

    P.S. Meanwhile I even tried it with a GOG version which I found "somewhere" and which is DRM free and still the same. I don't understand it, because this is the only game where this happens.
