  • Hi,

    I noticed that the game is designed for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP, it is kind of out dated. Try installing the game in compatible mode and run as administrator to check the result.

    The game manufacture is aware of the issue and working on it. Refer to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Details.aspx?type=Software&p=Blitzkrieg&v=CDV%20Software%20Entertainment&uid=&pf=14&pi=4&c=PC%20Gaming&sc=Strategy&os=32-bit

    How to run in compatibility mode:

    1. Right click on the program's shortcut, .exe file, or installation program.

    2. Click on Properties.

    3. Click on the Compatibility tab.  NOTE: If the Compatiblity options are grayed out, then it is a 64 bit program and cannot be changed

    4. To Run a Program in Compatibility Mode -
    NOTE: Runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Try this setting if you know the program is designed for (or worked in) a specific previous version of Windows.

    B) Click on the drop down menu arrow and select which version of Windows the program was made for. Suggest Windows XP (SP3)

    5. To Change the Settings for a Program -
    A) Check or uncheck the settings you want for the program.

    6. To Change the Privilege Level of a Program -
    NOTE: Runs the program as an administrator. Some programs require administrator privileges to run properly. If you are not currently logged on as an administrator, this option is not available.
    A) Check or uncheck the Run this program as an administrator box to enable or disable this option. 

    7. To Change All of These Settings Above for All Users -
    NOTE: Lets you choose settings that will apply to all users on this computer.
    A) Click on the Change settings for all users button.
    B) Repeat steps 4, 5, and 6 in this window to apply them to all users on the computer.
