 SC is still available at [[http://​eu.blizzard.com/​de-de/​games/​sc/​|Blizzard]]. You can also exchange an already owned CD key for a web installer key by linking your key to a Blizzard account and then use their web installer. This is not bad in combination with the patch, because you don't need a CD anymore. SC is still available at [[http://​eu.blizzard.com/​de-de/​games/​sc/​|Blizzard]].

 The game is playable in the LAN. But it turned out that you can't get around the patch, as the game works very unreliably with IPX. UDP is the protocol of choice here. Therefore the patch is also necessary, as UDP is only available with patch. The other possibility is via the Blizzard servers, but you need a valid CD-Key and under Win 7 x64 it will mess up the graphics a bit, so you can hardly work with the interface anymore. These problems don't exist with the game via the Battle.net client. The game is playable in the LAN. But it turned out that you can't get around the patch, as the game works very unreliably with IPX.
