    Just upgraded my windows vista to windows 7, and have loaded my son's Stronghold 2 game but when I would go to start it I got a message "Stronghold2.exe is not working", went to their web site and found no good tips. I removed this game and downloaded Warhammer Mark of Chaos and when I go to run that one I get a "invalid parameters" error box. Is this something with windows 7? Any help would be appriciated.

    Oh, and this is a really nice site! (y)

    Right Click the Icon and go to Properties then compatibility. Change it to what you had installed before the upgrade.

    Ok i cant stream videos where im at but i found this. Do you know how to make images, From what i read briefly youll have to do that. I been reading up on older games on these newer quad core and 64 bit systems, LOTs of games dont seem to be compatible with one or both of them. You tube never fails tho, watch and tell me what u think.

    Aero I have 32 bit. I'll be over your way in Dubai from 4-1 until 4-12, I work for a DOD Contactor so if your in Artilery you probably trained on one of our CFFT simulators. And also Thank you for your service!
