I didn't make it!

I've installed Battlefield 1942 and patched it to 1.61b. I downloaded Forgotten Hope 0.7 and installed it. When I click BF1942.exe it just gives me black screen for few seconds and throws me back to desktop. I've tried that Compability thing with "Run as administor" and with "Compability mode: Windows 98/ME". IM USING VISTA. What can I do to make it work? :confused:

if you start bf42 and it crashed then fh wont run

few things that comes to my mind (besides this thread http://forums.filefront.com/fh-help-support/321910-forgotten-hope-battlefield-1942-windows-vista.html) : - you dont have CD (or image or whatever) loaded - you are running the game with more than 60hz and you got a TFT screen that has a limit of 60hz (most of them do) in this case you would have to manualy change the screen refresh rate in the config files

however before you do that maybe someone who actually is crazy enough to use VISTA can help you

Maybe the first part here under Videodefault.con might help if it is a refresh rate issue that prevents BF1942 from starting:
