This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Found the solution... I bet you have a big monitor, as i do. It seems EA doesnt like big monitors. So the solution is to add an Options.ini in the C:\Users\[your login name]\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) Files folder (or C:\Documents and Settings\[your login name]\Application Data\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files if you use XP) and put the following content in that new created file:
AudioLOD = High
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
Resolution = 1024 768
StaticGameLOD = High
TimesInGame = 5

Please tell me if it works. (i havent reached home to test it, but i`m pretty sure that`s the problem because i have 2 different pc. One that works and one that doesnt work. The one that works has a 1280x1024 maximum resolution capable attached to the comp. The other one who doesnt work has a 1920x1080 res)

The file options.ini DOES NOT exist. Create it yourself.

Not sure if it was your fix, or trying to run from the CD instead of the shortcut, but it works. However, i still had data left over from my old install on XPSP3 and it started right up using it.

Make sure in the Control Panel -> Folder Options that you have Hide extensions for Known files types UNchecked and that the .ini file isnt really a .txt.
