Change the compatibility settings of the .exe file that executes the game to an earlier o.s. That should work. If it is REALLY old, try DOSBOX

Blitzkrieg will not work on windows 8.1


Blitzkrieg is a B***h of a game to get working on anything after XP
I own a copy myself and on windows 7 it runs really fast and the graphics are all over the place.
Unfortunately I dont think you can get it working unless you mess with the compatibility settings.

I'm interested in buying Blitzkrieg 2 but seeing alot of issues with vista is it safe to buy this


you need to run them in compatability mode for xp
HOWEVER not to worry. Right click on the game icon and select properties. Click on the compatibility tab and tick the box in the compatibility mode section. Select xp and click apply.Stat the game and hopefully it works.

My Blitzkrieg doesn't work on my Windows Vista Machines - is this a common problem and in that case - how do I solve it? Greetings Jonas


I think this is a common problem as Vista does'nt support many games and softwares...........Its better to use Win 7 friend.........

I've uninstalled and re-installed Blitzkrieg Anthology with my CD-ROMs and I am not able to play the game, everything loads fine but when I try to play the game the screen map does not pop up, gives me...


Try updating your video card drivers. However, according to the specs, it's not supported for vista.

Vista site is equally unhelpful.

Had a quick browser on the forums. Have you tried this vista dual-core patch?

Rolling Thunder will not run on Windows 7


Run it in compatibility mode by right clicking on the rolling thunder icon. And then click on Run it in compatibility. Let me know how it goes.

I have tried everything, how can i run this program? I have windows 7 64-bit and i need help!! Any solutions?


This is an older game so it may not be possible, but there are a couple things I would try. I have linked to sites with a full description of what is needed for each suggestion.
Compatibility Mode and Set CPU Affinity:

patch your game:

A quick search found other users who got Blitzkrieg to work, but I found none that were using Win 7 64 bit. 64 bit versions of windows seem to have more compatibility issues with older software than the 32 bit.
Assuming you have tried all of this, you might consider a dual-boot option for Win XP, or get an older PC for this and any other Win XP games (that don't like Win 7). I have found several of these.
