once i do the compatibility thi the game starts. but it freezes during game play and the start screen doesn't work (gobbles the graphics). also the mouse movement is invisible. could this be a direct x issue?

windows 7 x64
axis & allies

My system is almost identical (i7 & 12gb ram) to yours. I also have problems running A&A on w7. It installed ok & runs up to the main screen where you select the generals/players for each country. This is where I see the symptoms you describe (freeze, no mouse, gobbled graphics).

I have tried w7 (default), xp-sp2 & xp-sp3 modes with same result. Have you had any success?

thx, w7fguy

Windows Professional 64bit
An answere

This question ist quite old, but since two days I'm trying to play Axis & Allies,
with the AA Starter Pack, Full 6.0 Version, now it works.
My problem was, that the game always minimised to the task bar.

Found the answere here:
I cannot play Axis 98 properly on Windows 7, any - Microsoft Community

Basicly, right click the installer, (AAStarterPackFull60.exe), select ``troubleshoot compatibility'',
and run the windows trouble-shoot service.
Didn't quite get it, it started the installation, when I clicked on ``try selected settings'',
and started the game, before continuing with the ``trouble-shooter''(, ``problem-solver''?),
and I hat do copy the compatibility settings to the installed ``AxisAllies.exe''.
On my Windows 7 it was only ``compatibility mode: windows xp (service pack 2)''.
Think you need the Professional Win7 version, or up, to set the ``compatibility mode'',
but the trouble-shooter will help you.
