I did a search on the internet for this problem, but it seems as if it was a video card problem. I don't have a problem with mine. Nivida 7950GTX Intel Core2 Duo 2.4ghz 2 gigs of ram This could be the problem though. Running VISTA Home premium. Please help!!!

Dude I am sorry but you had to know better about windows problems everytime windows releases a "spanking brand new" o.s compatibility issues eventually crop up and the unwashed masses scream bloood but hey!! whose fault is it in the first place those money grubbing fools at M.S or eager beavers like you who just can't seem to wait for at least a year or two for the o.s to be completely bug free?? if I were you I'd reinstall xp but if you dont wan't to part with dear "brand spanking new vista" then you have to wait till microsoft figures the compatibility issues out.

The problem is NOT with the compatibility, I'm not some new user. I uninstalled all the Dawn of War series that I had. Upon re-installing, Dawn of War worked fine, when I installed Winter Assult, the spooge problem comes into effect. Besides I wouldn't call my computer new. Its over a year old. If you call my computer "new and amazing" then your computer must certaintly be archaic. I'm working on upgrading my processor to the "extreme" 2.93ghz and getting dual Nividia's 8800GTX next month. Apart from a couple of games that do have compatibility issues, most of my games run just fine on Vista. The games that I have working just fine are: Doom3 & Ressurection of Evil Quake 4 Call of Duty Call of Duty United Offensive Call of Duty 2 Sims 2 and 3 expansions Company of Heros Sin Episodes Half-life 2 and Episode 1 Supreme Commander Darwinia Painkiller Black Battlefield 2 and Special Forces Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 Project Snowblind Command and Conquer The first decade Medieval 2 Total War Prey Galactic Civilizations Oblivion Swat 4 and Stetchkov Syndicate Fear Battle for Middle Earth 2 Indigo Prophecy Roller Coaster tycoon 3 and 2 expansions Trackmania Sunrise Evolution GT GT legends GTR2 (I have the G25 steering wheel) Chessmaster 10 The Movies and expansion Counterstrike Zero Shadowgrounds Playboy the Mansion Need for Speed Most Wanted Warcraft and Frozen Throne Brothers in Arms road to hill 30 I have many more that I haven't installed yet. The games that I do have a problem with are: Moto GP3 (the controller configuration window doesn't pop up.) other than the fact that I can't configure my rumblepad, the game works fine. Neverwinter Nights Diamond. (nope, this one won't run at all) Brother in Arms Earned in Blood (The expansion won't load) Other than that, so far, I haven't had any other problems with any other games. Some old programs I had don't work either, but there are better versions out there that don't have compatibility issues. As far as Dawn of War, I don't believe that its a "compatibility issue" since the first game works fine. Its the update found on Winter Assault that has something to do with the "Spooge Driver" issue. I've tried uninstalling them all and installing Dark Crusade, and it works fine as well. So, I know its the update found on Winter Assault. I am going to try to do update without the winter Assault, and see what happens then...

The other thing about Vista is that its a different language than anything Microsoft had before. Sure there are "bugs", but most of those "bugs" must be changed, not by Microsoft, but by the companies that have to configure their programs and release Vista updates. As long as I'm willing to confront those issues with other companies, I am helping the situation by informing them of those issues instead of just sitting on my backside doing nothing about it. Vista's new language looks more like the UNIX system. Its far more secure and crash free than XP could ever be. XP is a hackers paradise to exploit, while Vista remains as the best OS Microsoft has put out. Its as secure as the Mac, which says alot about the integrity of the OS. Microsoft finally does it right with Vista, but since the language is different, other program developers must utilize the abilities of Vista and incorporate them within their own developments to take advantage of this new OS. It definitely has the potential to become a great OS, but that takes time, and the willingness of users to take the bull by the horns and start confronting those compatibility issues, and communicate with developers about those problems. Otherwise nothing gets done.

Man Unlike you!! I prefer to be PAYED when I beta test not the other way around.Kudos goes to you for sheer dedication!! crappos goes to you for blaming gaming companies and the common user for resisting to conform to M.S dictatorship In case you haven't notice M.S has no Real competitors to its software unlike gaming companies and publishers who have deadlines and such and practically kill each other just to be on top..

Well I found the source of the problem. Its not Vista, but the Nvidia drivers. I installed an older version of the drivers and the game works fine. Now its either up to Relic to release a patch to encompass the newer drivers, or Nvidia to release a new patch to enable Dawn of War to work. Now who do you believe has the first-end responsibility for this? Nvidia or Relic? Who do you believe will ACT upon asking for an updated driver? Nvidia or Relic? It would seem as if Relic has more interest in updating their patches to accompany the changes made to the drivers that Nvidia released. Thats my point of view. Regardless, Vista is not beta anymore, and I for one am doing my best to embrace this new OS regardless of my distaste for Microsoft. Yes Microsoft dictates the computer world through its OS's, but the choice to move to an different OS is completely out of the question. I don't like Microsoft, but hey, most games are configured and created for the Microsoft OS. I am a gamer, so I am compelled to embrace Microsoft wheather or not I like it. Vista as an OS, is new, but far more competent than XP.
