The solution

I was the same problem but find a solution, I install a virtual machine and installed the game in this virtual machine that emulate directx 7 and a could play normaly
The program is Mokafive creator or VMware player , that permit you install a virtual XP Professional Sistem or Windows Seven too, then you have to modifie same lines in the configuration of mokafive creator to enabled directx and 3d games.
I hope this is helpfull , Thanks.

I dunno I can get into the start up screen on Combat Arms but when I go to start the game I can hear the music but my screen is completely black. I see nothing. I hav tried running Engine.exe, CAV.exe and CombatArms.exe in XP SP2 and in Vista compatibility modes and with/without run as admin. I have the latest Nvidia drivers for my 9600gt Video card but nothing seems to help. I have uninstalled reinstalled and nothing...done clean installs....no help at all.

I play Combat Arms regularly on Win7x86 (oldewolfe E-8 and coldsteel101 PFC)... I did a Clean Win7 Install on 500gb Backup Drive I bought from Iomega/Radio Shack (Removed it from the Enclosure since it was a SATA Drive and Installed it in my Comp)... I Redownloaded from Nexon due to it not Openin' correctly when I tried a File Move and it works Fine, if not Better, than it did on XP... Ditto on nearly all of my Programs even...

Wanna try a Dual Boot Win7x86/Win7x64 and see if that works on most of my Games/Programs... Just need to work up the Nerve... lol
