There appears to be a workaround to get it to work. Right click on the desktop and select Personalize. Select the Windows Classic theme. Leave the window open. Right click on the desktop and select Screen Resolution. Leave the window open. Now try starting American Conquest. This seems to work on the four systems that I've tried it on.

    Yes,question to : davidaltonro = I wanted to ask you, what exactly do you mean by clicking on the desktop, do you mean just the desktop in general without clicking on a desktop icon or do you mean clicking on the divided nation desktop icon. Also question to : russelldave2= How did you get divided nation to play on windows 7 ,Because I cannot get my divided nation game to play at all on windows 7. A pop up box is telling me that the protection drivers are unsigned drivers

I am so sorry to tell you no
however if your determined i would try a virtual machine what it does is emulates a earlier version of windows such as xp [which is what the game needs]
if you want to try here is the link from Microsoft

I can't run game

ok, I have Win 7, but should be the same. if you have a shortcut icon for the game on the desktop, do this. STEP 1- right click on the icon, Step 2- select 'properties', STEP 3- select 'open file location' this will open the folder where the exe file is and it will be highlighted. STEP 4- right click on it and click on 'properties' STEP 5- click the 'compatibility' tab across the top of the box. STEP 6- tick the box that says 'run as' and choose XP from the drop down options. STEP 7- click 'apply' (or OK)
close all the boxes, and try to launch the game.
this should work. if you already know where the exe file is located, find it and go from STEP 4.

i think the fix for this would be to (a) find a new download of the game because this one could be faulty or (b) buy the game so that you don't have to crack it. also be careful of exe files. they aren't all demons whose sole purpose is to ruin your virtual life but some of them are.
