I downloaded the update and it seems that the error code 18 problem is gone; but now it is telling me "cannot find data file." Any solutions to this problem?

thanks i disabled those two programs and then i also had to go and turn off the windows xp compatibility mode for both games and they seem to be running fine.... is the menu scree supposed to be small? when i am actually playing a map it fits the screen.

Yes, the menu screens will not go full screen as they are hard coded at 800x600.....

This isn't necessarily the case. I disabled both UAC and defender, disabled my antivirus software (Norton 360), installed the game, opened the shortcut......and got the Error 18 code.

I've been trying to run this game for 3 hours now. My system might not meet the specs, so here's the dxdiag

Running as Admin. Tried both. Also tried xp compatiblility. and combinations of both.

Best I can do is get the Menu Box to open up. Oh, and I can view the manuals. So far though, I'm not happy about paying over $40 for a manual to a game I can't play.
