1 Answer

Rome TW won't play on a laptop with Windows 7.

Loaded Rome TW on a Compaq laptop with Windows 7, but when I try to play it I get a message "cannot locate RomeTW.exe". The game will run on a desktop Vista machine. Help!

    Following your advice I've stumbled over a solution. Couldn't locate RomeTW.exe anywhere (and nor could Search), but I found that in Windows 7, program files are divided between two folders: Program files and Program files (x86). Inside the Activision file in the (x86) one is the Rome Total War folder, and inside this are 5 files including Rome Total War application (9844KB in size). I tried to open this, and this caused the game to run... the opening movie works and I've started the first tutorial.

    A solution - many many thanks!

First thing is first, go to your install folder. (This is usually found in the C;\program files folder, i forget the full command path) and see if the .exe file is there. If it is not, try uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

Rome TW original release. Have had it playing on my Fujitsu Lifebook AH531 for 4 years now. 2 days ago it quit working.

I think I figured it out. The problem stems from the 09/09/2015 batch of Microsoft updates, specifically KB3086255. Uninstall this security update, and you should be able to run R:TW just like before. If it gives you the "Please login with administrator privileges and try again" error, right-click on the RomeTW.exe file, and select "Run as administrator." This should get you back in the game.
