hi all, 1st post so sorry if i ramble on a bit. am having probs getting armada2 to run at all. My pc is exactly the same as it used to be except it now has vista ultimate 32 bit. Armada2 used to run fine under xp, but now it crashes approx 5 secs after i begin a mission. The game is still running but the screen is frozen. i have the latest driver from nvidia for gfx card. Was hoping patches would fix this, but to no avail. 1.2 patch says "unable to verify location of armada 2". Fleet ops 3.0 almost installs, but while decoding audio i get "cannot create the file "C:\program files\activision\star trek armada 2 fleet operations\sounds\music\borg.wav" The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process" Am starting to get REALLY annoyed. Can anyone help me or am i destined to never again know the simple joy of blasting cardassians to hell!!!

FletOps problem: You have to wait for the new release or you have to copy an already existing installation of FO from another system. This is a known problem.

A2 & Vista problem: Which 1.2 patch are you talking about? There is only the 1.2 patch for A1 and the Patch Project of the FO dev team, current version is 1.2.5.

hi there, i have the 1.2.5 patch which does install successfully. However the problem still persists. I already have account control turned off.
