Compatability files

After fixing my previous problem i now have the problem that i need to access some files which should be compatability files but i can't find them and i don't have a button that says compatability files to click on to make them show up.

any ideas?

Hi there,

You're probably talking about Compatibility Mode, so here's a tutorial for that: Compatibility Mode

I tried this out, but it didn't work. I am trying to get Call of Duty 4 files to appear that need compatability mode to run. Call of Duty 4 works fine itself so your solution didn't change it but i need access to some of the files within the game but those files and folders are the ones that i can't find. They are definately there somewhere because the game wouldn't work properly without them.

They're probably in the game's install folder. Something like C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 ... let me know if that helps. What are the names of the files you need?

problem sorted, my last computer problem meant i had to create a new account which these folders hadn't been created on so i went back to my old 1 and found them there.

Thanks for the advice!!
