This the patch you're referring too,

Soldiers under Vista - Codemasters Forums

Poked around a bit on the forum but other than that thread didn't see much. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Have you checked the event viewer logs for a faulting app module path etc?


Have you tried running the .exe in Windows 98 /ME compatibility mode?
