    NOTE ON FS 2004

    I have noticed that flight simulator 2004 will play but on some systems it
    may be unrealistic, being it will run slower than if you installed it on
    Windows XP. I vave a copy and run it on Windows XP on full graphics but with
    vista I have to run it on minimal with compatilbility settings.

    (And I have become massively obsessed with this game!

    Well I must be doing something wrong with my new Vista Home Premium desktop,
    because I cannot get Command & Conquer: Generals and Zero Hour nor Splinter
    Cell : Double Agent to work.

    I have set the compatibility to XP and let them run as Admin but in all
    cases the screen just returns to the desktop view after I click play.

    This is on a machine with a Windows base score of 5.7

    Any help on getting these to work would be appreciated.

    I can play C&C Generals On my system, but I can't play FS 2004. My system is
    a NEC L1040 with 1GB+ Ram and a onboard AGP Graphics Card with a base memory
    of 256MB.

    I have been Reading so many diff. ways to try to get my DF2 game to work and
    without end have not been able to do it.

    I have done everything i can to it i can get my DF Favorites to work but
    the DF2.EXE wont work i have run it from XP to 98 to Admin.

    Turned all fire walls off it still wont work Single missions no problem i
    can run DFX,BHD, COD,COD2,COD United Offensive,Halo 2 on line.

    I cant run Wolfenstein: Enemy territory,COD4 which is Brand new and of
    Course DF2. There has to be a better way.

    I know about 10 People that run this game on their Vista and have no
    Problems at all I have the Vista Home Premium 1.86 2030MB with a Nvidia
    GeForce 7300 GT.

    I know this is an OLD game and should probably move on but this is still a
    cool game and there are still alot of us out there that play it or want too.

    Is Microsoft working on this at all or are they going to let it Slide.

    dual core processor, 1GB RAM. 512 Nvidia GeForce 8400GS graphics card and
    running windows visat ultimate, YET when i go to play AOE III (after a
    successful installation)i get a message saying "protection stub has stopped
    working - windows then tries to resolve the problem but cannot...

    Aoe 3 War Chiefs? Not here. I have even had trouble with aoe 3 both games
    were attempted on Vista Basic and Premium. I have commented about this on
    another thread and was told it was a setup problem but not given specifics on
    how to fix this. I have used the "run as XP service pack 2" option on aoe3
    and can run it through the shortcut on the desktop but not through the cd and
    trying to install War Chiefs is a joke! Even though aoe is in the program
    files where it should be vista can not find it when installing the expantion
    pack. I would half expect this from my Age of Pirates or Stronghold 2 games
    but aoe? I miss my Linux!!
