Have you tried right clicking on your program icon, clicking the Compatibility Tab, putting a check mark in the box that says RUN THIS PROGRAM IN COMPATIBILITY MODE FOR, then choosing a compatibilty mode, like XP, or other Operating System that you prefer that the program is known to already work on?

I have two WarCrafts (World and III, I think, it's been awhile since I played them) & they work fine for XP.

I own a Vista Home Premium and have learned that Vista is fickle, although many companies have made vast improvements on their products so that they may work with Vista. I changed the Compatibility Modes on some programs to XP & didn't have issues with them since.

Good Luck!


I forgot ... I don't have that game on my Vista, but I did have a major problem with one program that I eventually had to remove from my computer (before I remembered the Compatibility Mode), that may be necessary if changing the Mode or other options don't work.
