What's the problem? I know in XP you have to turn off hardware acceleration for audio in the control panel.

what version of vista are you running on?, I have A2 running on a Vista Home package (it works fine, it just wont let me uninstall properly).

vista home premium service pack one. i pathced armada to 1.2 but nothing. it works fine when you load the game and select a level. after the level starts the mouse jumps around and then it exits and i get the message that armada.exe has stopped working

Try starting windows in safe mode.

Try disableing Desktop Composition and enableing Administrative priviledge too. Make sure you're running the game directly from the .exe file you've set these changes to and not from any pop-up launcher. Perhaps that will do the trick.
