greetingz,

i got myself a Windows Vista Business OS today (via MSDN, no warez ofc), started installing stuff and i'm getting the hang of things, but i cant run CoD2. i have installed the ATI 32bit vista drivers for my Sapphire X1800XT 256, got the 1.3 patch, updated PB with pbsetup, but after the splachscreen i just get a black screen.

anyone has a solution for this problem? i searched the net for arcticles i found some saying cod2 should run without any problem

rig: P4 3.0GHz Prescott, 2x512 Kingmax 533 rams, Intel D945PVS mobo, the vga above, 350W psu, 200GB Samsung SATA2

tia

*just found out SP works

since i cant edit the post above, i'll just make a new post feel free to merge them.

got a crude workaround, i set up the multi exe to be ran in winxp compatibility mode, plus run as administrator (so pb doesnt kick me for O/S privileges).

hmm yesterday i had to apply the run as admin, but today it runs without it, maybe its magic, or xfire has some tricks or the updates which came for vista today had some fix in them
