so does that mean that it will be fixed by third party people?

bw freeze solution (win7)

well what's how it worked for me.. After a clean boot, i found that bw crashes because of the skype service which starts with startup.
So, when i switched it of, crashes dissapier. So you can try.
START > msconfig > startup > skype > (uncheck it)
Now i cant use skype in one moment while playing sc bw. If you dont have skype, You should find your program or service which maybe dont work correctrly with BW. Hope this will help you.

Thank you for your input, but it's very unlikely that both things are related since there is probably a few people in this topic that dont use skype at all (i know i didnt have it installed when my computer started crashing)

You should try which service works "wrong" with your running BW. Good luck

i don't skype, however i have other things open. regardless any application that causes a freeze like this is just accelerating the freeze in reality and not really causing it at all

I've tried to play the game on all versions of windows 7, hoping that Microsoft didnt put in a secret dll file into the higher up versions of 7 (ultimate), and still no go.

But after talking this with my stepfather, he asked if the game worked on Vista and of course XP, and stated that there could be a missing .dll file from vista that never got transferred to Windows 7. I've tried looking for the .dll file but after spending about a whole month, got nothing.

Just an idea to put out there....

if a dependency was missing, the game would simply fail to run.

Hello! As the first I apologize for my English. I let it translate in the Internet. I have the same problem as here descriptive with Pharao from Sierra. Every 5 seconds to 10 min. freezes.
All drivers and Mainboard Bios are up to date.
I described the problem here:

Probleme mit Pharao unter Windos 7 32 Bit

The result of the discussion was the following:
My board (Asus P5K) is too old and does not support Windows 7 any longer correctly.

Here is the original answer (translated):
the driver support goes only to Vista. Under Windows 7 the board functions reduced. In this constellation it will give no useful solution.

Could it be really so simple?

OS: Win7 32 Bit
CPU: Q6600
Grafik: Geforce 8800 GTX
Mainboard: Asus P5K

Hi, its not age, or lack of support. Though i've tried pharoah and didn't have a freeze myself, it just means i might not have tested long enough. This game is however immune from the colours bug.

You'll be able to play again if you install Windows XP under virtualbox or virtual pc. (Not XP Mode as it doesn't support display switching)

Windows 7 seems to have a bizarre issue with DirectDraw titles that result in them freezing randomly for no good reason, some newer DDraw apps are immune, presumably because they use the desktop palette or 32bit depth.

windows 7 home premium 64 bit
 
 

don't know if this is irrelevent information, but i just installed starcraft on my new computer running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

i played entirely through the original campaigns, fresh install, sc version 1.04. no problems, no freezes, approx. 20 hours of play (i dont consider the slight color glitches a "problem").

however, this exact freezing problem started when i moved on to play through the expansion missions, after installing broodwar.


starcraft = worked
starcraft post expansion install = broken
that's all i got
