Windows 7: Combat Arms Not Wanting to Work

22 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit
Combat Arms Not Wanting to Work

I have recently tried to get back into playing Combat Arms, however, it does not want to seem to run under Windows 7 at all. It ran fine under Windows XP.

I have added the program to my Comodo Firewall trusted programs, but it doesn't seem to be a firewall issue. I have tried running it under XP/Vista Compatibility, and it still does not run. I have tried adding the .exe file to the DEP list, but that doesn't fix the issue either. Running as Admin does nothing.

I have a dual-boot machine with XP and Windows 7. I hardly ever go into Windows XP, and I'm not exactly willing to go into XP just for a single game (every other game I play is on 7).

Has anyone else made this game work with Windows 7 at all? I've already searched the other threads here, but none of them are related to my problem. It's not a DirectX problem, it's not a graphics card issue (seeing as I highly doubt new drivers will make it work, simply because if it would, my driver version is newer than said game). It's not a memory problem (I have the RAM), it's not a HDD space issue. It obviously has to be some type of problem with something, but I don't know what. Others have said it works fine under their own Windows 7 machines (both 64bit & 32bit).

Help would be appreciated, thank you.

Edit: When I mean "not running", I mean that the game will get to the point of the "little guy running in the corner", and then when it's done loading, I will get an error stating the game has stopped working.

Is this an Offline or Online game? if Offline, have you tried shutting down the internet, AV and firewall just to see if it starts w/o it? Once it does, it would be easier to troubleshoot the issue.

What about Patches? are there any you could update?

Online only. No singleplayer at all.

It's very similar (copycat) to Battlefield Play For Free.
