Windows 7, 32-bit... this is 2012....

I've just installed HOI 1, straight off the cd (HOI anthology version). The installer doesn't work (where it lists the 4 possible installations), but if you go into the hoi1 folder and run the setup.exe from there, it will install and run WITH NO PROBLEMS whatsoever...

FYI: hoi2 installs exactly the same and runs with no problems either.

Anyone for hoi 1 using the DH map?
