Sorry friend but this game is not compatible with Vista and there aren't any patches. However you can try your luck here. Go thru the thread http://www.theblitz.org/downloads/patches.php#cs

Also i suggest you to run the game with the Xp Sp2 Compatability option turned on.

I got talonsoft eastfront II to run on my windows 7 laptop by using two pieces of software. First I use vmware player and created a virtual machine with a winxp install. Second, I ripped the original game CD using alcohol. This creates an image that preserves the special formatting that is necessary because of the SafeDisc copy protection that is used in this talonsoft game. I mount this image using alcohol since my laptop does not have an optical drive. The vmware player sees the mounted image as a normal cd drive with the original game cd in it. I can install and play eastfront II in the win xp virtual machine. I installed the 1.02 patch. No other special settings were necessary. All features appear to work with this setup. The videos play, the unit viewer works (win98 era help files with transparency do not work in win 7 normally), background music and sfx are streamed off the virtual cd

Talonsoft east front will not load on windows vista


make sure the game is compatible with vista and if it is older game made in 1995.then you might have to
explore the cd and right click and properties.find the tab that says compatibility and click what ever year it was made in
if you got all of the back up cd to your vista machine. you can put two operating systems on it and put xp
on at the same time with vista.if you got a xp installation disk i can email directions on how to get two operating systems
please email with any questions at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com

Cant get west front to work with windows 2000?


I recently dug this game back out, it is really cool and wanted to play it again. It was still installed on my desktop Windows XP and worked fine but couldn't get it to run on laptop with exact same problem you described. After an hour of searching the net I found this patch which fixed it and now it runs fine. You can find it at the link below. Just select the appropriate one you need.

Good Luck,
