Which version of DoW are you running - DoW or WA? What were the maps designed for? Are the maps in the MP folder or are they in some sub-folder?

A bit more info and I might have some ideas (even though I've never worked with maps before)

Just a hunch, try it without the capitols in scenarios and mp. Just to make sure. This might not help at all, but I looked at where you installed your maps, and where I installed mine, and that was the only difference I could find.

Probably won't help - it's Windows we're running in here! It can't tell the difference between an EXE and a picture of a grilled cheese sandwich named grilledcheesepicture.exe, never mind being case sensitive :D

Lol, good point. It was the only thing I could see that was different to mine, I'm not sure why it wasn't working. New patches/versions of the game do not affect maps at all, so that wouldn't be it either.

Chances are either a WA map and he/she/it is running DoW, or it has ended up within a sub-folder of the folder.

Hmm. If it was a WA map, then objects and decals would not show up, but the map would run. Samlord says he has the Game of The Year copy of the game, which contains all the patches up to 1.3 IIRC. I'm not sure whether it has anything different in it, that changes installation path.
