Windows 7 Professional (32bit)

Happy to say every version from The Russian Front to The Longest Day work fine, including Close Combat Marines 3.1. I did not have to run compatibility mode on any of them. CC3 exits properly without the usual XP crash on exit.

All mod managers work. MMCCIII works as well.

I did not try Close Combat 1, 2 or Road to Baghdad.

An update, i tried both the longest day and a bridge too far on windows 7 home premium 64 bits. Both run perfectly but a bridge too far needs to have videos disabled and an aplication called ccstarter to load the menus properly. Also for installing the update it has to be installed manually

An update from me as well.... Road to Baghdad runs fine without having to mess with compatibility options.

I can't use Qclone on windows 7. It will start up but does not open the adb's. I would have to install microsoft's java virtual machine but Windows 7 won't let me, stating known compatibility problems. Also, .Net framework which is needed for some tools (though I don't know which ones) can not be installed on 64bit systems. Does anyone know a workaround for installing these applications? If not possible what other tools to open and adjust adb files are there?

Thanks,

Please disregard - all I had to do was change the screen resolution to prevent crashes

it works except the video hangs in game play, so I can move units around during deploy, but I have to scroll for the screen to redraw and update. as well the menu doesnt appear correctly and when things do appear, I get horizontal lines.

I had the same problem of "action not supported", but I eventually found a solution to my problem - I dropped screen resolution from 1920 x 1080 to 1024 x 768.
This is the only resolution of the screen where the game will launch and not have any "action not supported" problem, all the others results in the same problem.

My scrolling doesn't work. When moving the cursor to screen edge, it just flips to the opposite screen edge. Any ideas?

Hi, new to the forum, I played this game years ago, before I joined the service, and just recently tried to find it again.  I cannot find a way to download it (im on windows 7) anywhere.  Ive tried a dozen sites, and with a few i managed to get to the point where it I could agree to terms and conditions, agree, and then nothing happened.  Where can I download the series, regardless whether free or not?  Im in Europe, with only European cards, but paying wouldnt be a problem.  Finding is.  Any help would be much appreciated!!
Edit: wanted to clarify that Im making sure the versions are stated as windows 7 compatible.

@ yarrick5

I guess you're able to check Mr google by yourself to find more or less illegal sources for downloading the Close Combat series...

But I rather recommend to buy it via Matrix (Matrix Games) or Slitherine (Slitherine). Both offer many payment options and the versions you get there are Windows 7 compatible...


If you enjoyed the series before is it imo worth a buy cause you'll get many hours of satisfaction out of your bucks  Wink

I own most of the original CC games (for the record).  :)

I wonder whether downloading games that are no longer available to buy is 'illegal' (Its not illegal anyway; its copyright infringement, which is a civil matter).
Might the old CC games now be now classed as abandonware?

In a number of countries it's actually ok to download copyrighted material; however you arent allow to distribute it.

Dang I spent the last 4 hours reading through the manual, after installing the game this morning and applying the 3.60 patch only to find out that every time I load the game all I get is an error Close Combat Error dialog box that says:

"Unable to get format on stream"

This happens on both the Matrix shortcut icon (Cross of Iron Game Menu) and the Command Centre.

I am running Windows 7 with all the latest and greatest updates. I have several java based compilers running and I have installed Visual Studio (I am a programmer by trade) so not sure why this won't work on my system.

Has anyone else had problems with W7 and CC COI?

I can't believe the game won't even run on my machine, I have plenty of other modern games installed with no issues.

I have also tried to change the exe to run in all compatibility modes and all fail, the closet was Windows 95 when I saw a mouse cursor and then it just CTD.

This is a real bummer. Twisted Evil

I thought that this Matrix version of CC COI was supposed to be Windows 7 compatible?
