    HoI II Armageddon and Doomsday Crashes

    I got a new Vista machine and I am having trouble with Hearts of Iron II Armageddon and Doomsday. All updates for Vista have been installed thru today.

    This is what I did:

    Installed HOI II from my disc.

    Ran the game. It loads and runs fine.

    Patched the game with the game with the 1.3a update from the Paradox site.

    Game crashes on start up.

    Changed the setting to run as administrator.

    Game runs fine!

    Downloaded Armageddon from Gamers Gate. Installed to a non default folder.

    Game won’t start. It asks me to install the latest milestone.

    Changed setting to run as administrator.

    Same problem

    Installed the 1.2 patch from the Paradox site.

    Same problem

    Changed setting to run as administrator.

    Same problem

    Downloaded Doomsday from Gamers Gate.

    Game gets to the point where you can select Single Player. Game hangs at that point. I have to use Task Manager to shut it down.

    Changed setting to run as administrator.

    Same problem

    Kept administrator setting and added XP SP 2 compatibility.

    Kept administrator setting and added XP SP 2 compatibility.

    If I select tutorial I can run those. If I select Single Player the game pops up this error” --- ERROR: (ScenarioInfo: unexpected field) ‘UES=(Line=9File= scenarios\0_Global_war.eug ---

    I tried renaming the AVI folder to something else as suggested in another thread and that did nothing to help.

    And AVG 8 now reports that the editor.exe file is infected.

    My system is:

    Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I can try next?

    You need to install Arma on top of your DD installation....

    Also turn off UAC

    Here is how

    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windo...windows-vista/

    And never install the game in the default program files folder

    Install it to something like c:\games\HOI2DD

    Install DD
    Install Arma on top of DD folder
    Install 1.2 Arma patch on top of DD folder


    Done.
