Battle for Middle Earth 2 error?

When I want to run the game, I keep getting an error. I created the folder from AppData, even the options.ini file but it keeps crashing!(Note: when I had Windows XP it was working perfectly)

On my PC I have:

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.66GHz 2.67GHz
1,50 RAM
nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128MB of memory

So, please help?

Have you tried re-installing it? it looks like the file 'GameLOD.ini' is messed up or corrupted, and re-installing it might help. Also try removing the file, and see if it runs like that.

I reinstalled it, made that folder again and the options.ini file.I used this

AudioLOD = High
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
Resolution = 1024 768
StaticGameLOD = High
TimesInGame = 5

and after that I started the game I got that error. I have DirectX 11 and what is hardware acceleration?

try setting the settings the lowest. Your graphics card has 128mb ram but for high settings it requires 256mb i think.

Also what do you mean by creating the folder, is it necessary?

How do I do that? I know 128 is pretty low because when I had XP the game was very slow on high graphics and after I changed the resolution to lowest and the graphics details to lowest it was working.

Yes, it's the folder with the settings for the game, saved games, maps and stuff like that. And, unfortunately since this game was designed for XP it won't create the folder when I install it.

Have you tried compatibility mode? (Right Click > Properties >Compatibility)

also to change the settings, in the options.ini change everything to low and set resolution to 640x 480 and see if it will start up.

If that does not work, search for another .ini file somewhere in the actual game folder itself.

Do you have another computer with windows xp installed on it? If you do, you can install Battle for Middle earth 2 on it, reduce the settings to lowest, and then using a usb stick or network sharing, transfer the game from the xp computer to the windows 7 computer. If that doesn't work, then you might have to get a new graphics card.

I don't have another computer, but I have a friend who has XP. Would that do?

I didn't quite understand the transfer part. Did you mean that after I install it on that computer, I put the installed game on the usb stick and put it on my computer?

Yup! just install it on their computer, start it up, change settings to lowest and then just copy and paste the whole game folder from their pc to your pc via a usb stick.
