Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I stumbled in here looking for some fix to my problem.
I'm not running COW, but TAOW2 and with the Flashpoint: Kosovo add-on. The game ran fine on my old PC with Win98, but I upgraded to XP Pro here w/in the past year or so. The problem I am having is once I play a senario(and it plays fine), and I save it, I can't get it to reload.
I tried a couple different compatibilty settings that you guys mentioned to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated. I really like playing this game, but if I can't play anything after I've saved it, it kind of ruins it.
I once had a similar problem with TOAW II. Try loading the scenario you want to play in your editor and simply save it again (either under the same name or a different name, doesn't matter). Such re-saved scenarios did the trick on my system when I first changed to XP Pro.
I have TOAW v1, elite edition. I tried changing the compatability setting to win 2000, but when i click on the .exc icon, I get a message that states the program will not run under NT. Do you have any other ideas to get this to run under XP.
