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.
