Question about CDV Software Cossacks 2: Napoleonic Wars for Windows
I installed cossacks 2 napoleonic war and after the installation and reboot and everything i went to play the game and it came up saying error: 184.108.40.206; 300D; DrvOpen failed, LE: 1275
please can u help me it would be greatl appreciated..
Well, try this, we call this "compatibility" mode, most programs can be run on windows 7 with this trick.
I assume your Cossacks II Napoleonic Wars icon is on the Desktop,
Right-click the Icon (game's icon), select "Properties" and click "Compatibility" tab, select "Run this program in compatibility mode for" click the "Windows 95..." and select "Windows Xp (Service pack 2)", click "Apply" > "Ok" and try again.
If even after doing this, the game can't be played, then there's no option. The fact is that, this game is made to run on system with Windows xp and earlier version, but somehow if fortunate, it's possible, not will all software, some may work, some may not.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: i can't not play cossacks
The Game doesn't play because of totally different work environments than it has been designed to. Here are some solutions:
1. Rename Video folder in the game.
2. Right click on the program. Then navigate to compatibility, then select the compatibility operating system the game is supposed to be played under. Also, after you select xp sp2 and check the box that says "run as administrator".
3. Download this patch from:
