compatibility moad?

right click on CCV.exe, config manager, click on properties/compability, click everything to Win98.
CCV will work better also.

i have Vista Home Premium 32 bit, and also gamespy is a problem, u need to use a special page, search help/faq forums here for how to get around it.

I played CCV online,swaped mods fine with vista.

i heard there is a sp1 patch out for vista, NOT with auto update, its like a beta,go to microcock's main page, search for patch. helps with drivers im told.

i have the same problem.

failed to copy system\packages\gjsv44\CC5.exe to C:\program files\SSI\Close combat invasion normandy\CC5.exe (error code =5)

it happens even when compability mode is set to win98 on cc5 and cfgmanager

CC5 5.01 works tho, so there cant be a big issue. im gonna try installing the mods manually if no one has any idea, perhaps it will do the trick

We need to find out how to allow to place shortcuts into folders in vista, cause it doesnt, and such the cc5.exe file isnt allowed into the program files folder. what you can do is to install all manually and then remove the initial exe and copy paste the new one in. gets the frickin game running anyway.

Schrecken thanks alot. Works fine now.

So to all, simply choose to run the Cfg manager as an administrator and there wont be a problem with the install.
As far as GS is concerned it appears its not supporting Vista yet, but I heard one can follow a buddy into the lobbies.

Anyway, anyone knows if there is a way to bring back the multiplayer section of CC5, as of now all the buttons are lost. Is there a security feature in Vista that could block them?!

your the second person to say its dissapeared from ccv with vista,

I used Vista for cc5(at gamespy)/coi/ccmt at BHQ and no problems.

bacause i dont use hamachi really, or tcp/udp connect, i never looked.just gamespy,i had to use a special link to open CCV gameplay room,make ccv.exe win98 compatible. Play...

We're trying to play h2h with cc4 and have the same problem that a variety of b uttons are not visible on the multiplayer screen.
Funnily enough, my friend with xp sees 'modem' and 'serial' buttons, but not tcp or udp. I don't see any buttons at all on my vista.

I understand firewalls quite well and our network connection should not be any problem. Both machines run cc4 fine against AI.

Thanks for any tips.

I have tried several different compatibility modes and have also used the 'run as admin', but it has not helped. I will keep trying variations, but it seems I have a rare problem.

I have buttons now, and expect things to proceed well from here, at least on my Vista.
However, I can't really say what was the actual fix. I just shuffled through many different compatibility options and modes in random order.

The one that finally worked was XP SP2 compatibility mode.
Now I will see if I can fix my friends XP somehow..
