    I got Road to Hill 30 to install and run, I had to download DirectX 9.0c.
    But EIB will not run! Try that and see if you can get EIB to run, at least
    then I will know that my problem is not DirectX or not........

    Have you installed the 1.11 patch? I am not sure if that is for EIB or just
    the generic BIA

    Another problem, it looks like EIB uses Starforce copy-protection. You will
    have to go to the Starforce website ( and download their
    latest drivers, as the ones that came on the cd are not compatible with
    Vista (I am pretty sure).

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks Mark
    I have tried to load the patch but because I can't even load the game into
    the computer the patch will not load.

    Hi Bill,

    I am just going through my games that I've collected from my XP days; and
    found that the game mentioned above, is one that is incompatible with Vista,
    I have Home Premium also. This is down to the fact that the game installation
    routines have not been tested with Vista, only XP. What is the point of
    installing updated protection routines to your PC, when the installer doesn't
    run properly - just hang; everytime. Ubisoft do not care!!! I once had a
    problem with one of their games, and despite my repeated emails to find out
    how to solve the problem, I was ignored!!! The company doesn't care once it
    gets our money, so we can be the same and avoid the games they release with
    the same comtempt!!!

    Midway have been very good, as their website provides work arounds,
    including ways to get the install routines to work, and instructions on how
    to and when to update the protection routines - ubisoft is nonchalant about
    it all!! Maybe I should email them, on second thoughts I won't waste my time,
