Okay this is pissing me off to no extent

Last saturday i sat down happily to go an game and finally play FHSW

It crashed on load up every single time. Weird thing is: there are NO reported issues on windows vista + Bf1942. But mods crash me every single time

Does anyone know what to do? i tried everything with compatibility modes and admin access, and i am goign to use the 100Gb of unpartitioned space to create a Windows xp install solely for WaW this way *grrrr*

I have investigated using VMware

But that still doesn't support virtualisation of your actual 3d-card, thus its useless for me. Dual boot is the only option (till microsoft can fix the issue.... which they won't as BF1942 is too old for it anyway)

Tried it saturday:

It threw me out at load up of a map on FHSW

I pulled the plug yetrday after a failed dual boot attempt. Maybe i will dual install vista in a couple of months, but for now its back to XP for me after trying to get some software to work (which never worked as it should)

XP is more limber anywayz. Vista tried to be to secure and futuristic.

You are on admin settings and on compatibillity mode?

Have you tried out turning off the security that bugs you for everything that tries to load?

So your saying you are running Vista without these nasties (even with TS and FHSW?)

If so what are your settings exactly?

Never really tried FHSW, but hell, I can run old 1995 games with it.

Got Vista Home edition (I know, it ain't the 64 bits thingy, that might be where your problem's at).

And yea, TS works like a charm with Fraps, BF42/Fh and Chat conversations going on MSN.

Disable this **** : http://technet2.microsoft.com/WindowsVista/en/library/0d75f774-8514-4c9e-ac08-4c21f5c6c2d91033.mspx?mfr=true
Should help you get rid of the annoyance.

As for FH, it is running on WINDOWS 98 compatibility, not xp, not 2000, it's 98.

Works like a charm apart from white shadows (I don't even have the buggy sounds)

Once again, get rid of the UAC alerts and you'll find vista to be MUCH more pleasant.
