Jon,

Please try the "Quick Start" shortcut in your Start menu folder for CNAW instead of going through the Game Menu and see if that helps. If that doesn't work, you may need to try the manual shortcut procedure above (let us know if you need help with that).

Regards,

- Erik

We have made a change to the shortcut and game menu that should fix the problem and will hopefully be available with the next patch.

So do I get a reward for the fix I told you about ?

Perhaps a copy of "Close Combat: Wacht am Rhein "

Meaning neither the game menu nor the quick start shortcut works for you still?

Sad to say that you are not alone in respect of your problem - I too have been unable to play this game for the same reason - all I have been offered was a refund which I took - I would have preferred a fix so I hope that the powers that be will sort this out for all of our sakes - good luck.

The game is working.
I made sure to defrag (just in case ...again)
I uninstalled both main file and patch.I then reinstaled both... et voila.
I have had a quick dance through the tutorial (in disbelief at success of it working)

I now can truely add that in a future update consideration should be given to artillery range being reduced.

I will post if I come across anything else on my travels .....

For all who offered their support and words of "wisdom"-I thank you
Cheers

Excellent, sounds like somehow the first update installation didn't work successfully. Great to hear that it's working now.

I don't exactly understand this post. According to this account, you have three posts total and I don't see a previous one in this thread or forum.
