How to fix borderlands 2.

There are many different type of fixes around, all which I found not to work at all. These problems only occur on windows 7 and windows 8, mostly on proffesional or higher tier versions. The reason is still unknown but if you realy want to play borderlands 2 you can always buy and install windows server 2008 R2. Borderlands 2 will run on this operating system.

But what is the difference between windows 7 / 8 and windows server 2008 R2, While windows server 2008 R2 and windows 7 are based on the same cores there are some feauture’s excluded and some added to windows server 2008 R2. As an example windows server 2008 R2 does not have aero or themes nor themes menus. It also has an different version of the kernel compared to windows 7, This is important as the windows server 2008 R2 kernel is generaly more stable and in many case’s 15 – 17% faster.

More but less important difference’s are that serverR2 ( windows server 2008 R2 ) does not contain windows media center. it also lacks usb harddrive mounting support, For example you can’t mount your iphone photo folder to serverR2. ¬†Also every connection trough the internet by applications like example.exe is performed with extensive security settings due to internet explorer with added security. This means that by default programs wont be able to load webpages from the internet unless you give them administrative acces, and even then images and other dynamic content will most of the time fail to load.

So to make sure you can truly play borderlands buy and install windows server 2008 R2![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
