    I have the same problem. The solution given does not work (nice try, though). For me, the game opens fine, but once you click "install", it loads for a few seconds, and then nothing happens. I'm not sure why this is.

The game was released back in 2002, that means it was designed for older versions of Windows OS (Windows 98/ME/XP). The updates for the game do not have any patches for the installation to be compatible to the new Windows Vista OS as they were released on November, 21st 2002 aslo that patches resolve functionality issues after the game is successfully installed.

Some game ".exe" file (executeable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows XP Service Pack 2" and then click on "Apply".

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.

The same set of steps can be used for installation of older games installation on Windows Vista.

Conflict Global Storm is installed & running But it Freezes up leaving a still picture but i still hear action from sound when pressing buttons I am running it on Acer Laptop running wimdows Vista...


I have the same problem, despite 2GB RAM, dual 2.4ghz processors and an up to date graphics card. You'd think this would happily run a game from 2005, but no. Oddly, I experienced this problem with Conflict: Denied Ops but no other game. One solution is, every time it freezes, to press ESC (pausing the game) followed by CTRL-ALT-DEL then bring up task manager. The game should then run again....at least until it next freezes. However this can get very frustrating if, like me, you have to do it every minute or so. Its just one of those Vista things.
