There is no patch, but supposedly this is the process for getting the game to work in Vista:

Many Vista users including myself have claimed Battlefront II won't work in Microsoft's latest operating system by a year, Vista. The alleged problem was that when attempting to play any game (load a map), whether online or single player or compaign, the map wouldn't even load- the game would immediately stop and "crash" to the desktop (meaning the game just closed). But the Menus work fine in Battlefront II, so why can't any games, meaning maps, load?

People have found some solutions. Some people say that disabling sound within the game solves the loading issue, which it does, BUT all future gameplay is without sound. I've found a solution to the problem, at least for some Vista users who may find themselves lucky as I did.

Here's my solution. Keep in mind this is for Windows Vista users ONLY:

Go to START,
then click on CONTROL PANEL.

Be sure you aren't under "classic view" for the control panel. You know if you are not in classic view if you see categories such as "System Maintainence" and "Security." If you haven't tampered with the settings, then your most likely not in the classic view.

Anyway, then click on HARDWARE AND SOUND,
and then click SOUND.
A window will pop up.
Navigate to the RECORDING tab in the top,
then RIGHT CLICK on some open white space
and select "Show Disabled Devices."
Hopefully, if you are still in the RECORDING tab,
a new icon will appear called "STEREO MIX."
RIGHT CLICK on the SETEREO MIX icon and select "Enable."

And wippity bang! Hopefully, this guide was of some help to other once-hopeless Vista users. Happy playing, and may the force be with you all!

Rhem 1 crashes when trying to go forward to the tower.. i have vista, and having trouble downloading the patch.. and the patch requires money and membership.


I had this problem too. There's a patch at "http://www.rhem-game.com/support/index.htm". I updated Quick Time. Windows also asked me to uninstall and reinstall Adobe Shockwave player twice. I've been playing a couple of days now with no more problems but I do save before I get to that spot.

Do you get any error messages? Try Downloading the updated drivers and install them. Make sure you download the drivers for 64-bit vista OS. Now if it still doesnt work let me know.

I have quickbooks pro 2006 and I purchasaed a new computer with Vista. Where can I get a patch to allow my 2006 XP version to run on vista


By the looks of it, no patch is necessary. The only thing it requires to run is administrator privileges. To do this you can do it one of two ways.

Rightclick the quickbooks pro icon.
Goto Properties
Select the tab labeled "Compatibility"
On the bottom of that tab put a check in box captioned "Run this program as an administrator"
Then press Apply and OK.

Now every time you startup this program it will be with administrator privileges.
