Thank you for your response. I figured a workaround would be needed so I broke the alliance. For information, the alliance had been in effect for about 5 years prior to capturing the port of Madras. Did not see any other fleet(s) near Madras before atttacking. Thanks again.

I'm using Windows 7, and was previously using Windows Vista, and until an hour or two ago, wasn't able to get the game running, but, after trying to install the base game (with Director's Cut) to a different directory instead of the Program Files directory, I installed it to "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\" and it seems to work just fine, only issue I had was before installing director's cut since it didn't seem to launch at all.
Still problems with the game
Impossible to run this game properly.
The problems seem to be deeper than a simple difficulty to run after the introdution videos: I have problems when the game is running: when the mouse comes to some places, suddenly, it seems to be falling into infinite loops. Everything is freezed. The sound is blocked on a single tone. The Ctrl+Alt+Supp button does not reply and the only solution is to plug the computer out and disconnect the battery.
In fact, I have run the game during 40mn and it reacted fine. But suddenly ( I had 4 fleets), the mouse became frozen. Since then, I stopped the computer, started to reload... but I always have problems: either after the videos, or after a few minutes of playing a loaded game. The scenario is always the same: the mouse is moving and suddenly stops. Everything is blocked.
- Portable computer
- OS: Windows Vista SP2
- CPU: Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2310 @ 1.46GHz 1.47GHz
- RAM: 2Go
- Graphical Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 M GS
I run the minimum configuration of the game:
- all options set to "low"
- No video, no sound, no effects
I tried all the "solutions" posted on this forum:
- my graphic card is updated
- I have the last patch of the game
- I gave the authorizations against the "Data Execution Prevention"
- I run the game directly from the "eastindia.exe" file in its installation directory
- I have put manually the enable options to "0" in the "options.txt" file of the config folder
but still... it does not work !!
[Note: I have the same kind of "log.html" file than the others: filled with dozens of "DEBUG... property not found" and "ERROR Ambiguous filename"]
Any possible miracle ??
People who download from Steam:
Fix for "Program is unavilible" is to load the latest 32 Bit version of C++ distribution even on a 64bit machine.

Benutze Windows XP. Kann mir jemand helfen?
Tech Supporter Pls help: unusual problem
Hi i was very looking forward to old navy battle games so when this game came out i was sooo happy that i bought it the 1st sight i saw it. last night when i 1st installed the game i straight away went to quick battle for a taste of navy battle. it worked. i play 3 times and no problems at all. this morning when i tired to play campagin, it stopped loading--->similar to problem #1. but i was able to play quick battle??? i tried the solutions but still the same...im using intel core 2 duo 4gb ram and gtx9800 so i'm sure there's no problem with my specs....pls help??
Try, try and try again
OK. Ive done everything you have suggested - updating drivers, disabling DEP, changing the config thingy etc, etc. All goes well until the screen comes up "EAST INDIA COMPANY". We wait for a bit, as the hard disc thinks about things - finally the music starts playing for about four seconds then goes into stuck record mode and computer reboots.

946GZ express chipset family (everything now updated via "MYDRIVERS" to today's standard)
Where to now? All I wanted to do was drive a sailing ship, and sink a few others. Now I have double-vision, high blood pressure, spots before my eyes, am prone to grinding my teeth, and am beginning to have fantasies about playing frisbee with my very expensive store bought nitro games disc!
Hi! I think your computer is below our minimum hardware requirements - the game requires 1 GB of ram. I quess 946GZ chipset means Intel GMA X3000 graphics processor which doesn't have hardware support for shader model 3.0. If the game starts it can be slow.
Please try to patch the game to at least version 1.06 (patch 3) which should increase compatibility with older hardware and try again. Afterwards please post here the log.html from the folder the game is installed to.
OK, thanks. Have Enlarged virtual paging to 2GB. Have installed patch - still no go. Will send log ASAP.
I was unable to get the game to start for a long time . I assumed it couldn't be the DEP because I did not have it set for all programs . Rather I had it set for essentials only . Yesterday I decided to try setting it to all programs and put the game on the exception list . And it worked .
Now for the frustrating and weird part . When I turned off the game and later tried to turn it back on it didn't work . On a whim I decided to look in the config. file to see if anything had changed . I found a new file there labeled "Console History" . I opened it and it was empty so I deleted it . Then the game worked , but I have to do that every time . It's frustrating .
I am having same problem i would also like to know when ther will be a patch, i would also like to know where to get any patches that are out or might come out for this game
Pirate bay startup issue
EIC Designers Cut works fine, Privateer works fine, Pirate Bay plays the startup movie and crashes on the Pirate Bay screen before the menu. I disabled DEP as described and tried the modified options without success.
sorry i can not english

cpu: intel core 2 quad q6600 2,4 ghz
grafik: nvidia geforce 8800 gtx
