And it installed perfectly over my original non-gold CEAW once I'd pointed it to the Matrix installation folder of the game. The installation testing was worth it.

Any chance you could post a screen shot for installation? I remember 2.0 being a nightmare to figure out.

I had the same issue as mbar and ferryman1013.

My solution was to uninstall everything. I tried uninstalling only 2.00 but because I had already installed 2.10, I could not. So I uninstalled back to no game. I deleted the files on the main Windows program menu and the folder in the Matix games folder.
Then I reinstalled my old original Commander:Europe at War.
Updated to 1.12 (the file is available on the members page if you registered your game and didn't put the update into your game folder).
Then I installed 2.10

All works well now. If you have your old game and serial number, this will work.

I received a install successful message, but still not sure...
Other screens suggest new data as per readme.pdf
Anyone else getting old version number?

I get CEAWv1.12 GS v2.10 after the install, changed the installer default to the Matrix 'CEAW' folder and everything seems to be working OK. I read elsewhere the vGS 2.0 should be uninstalled, but the download just delivers the installer and I saw no notes about v 2.0, either way I didn't uninstall v2.0, but it all seems to be working OK.

I have the Matrix version and changed the installer default to the Matrix CEAW installed in directory C:\Matrix Games\Commander Europe At War Gold and it all seems to be working OK. There is something about uninstalling v GS 2.0, but I saw no notes on that so didn't do it and it doesn't seem to have had any effect.

New member here.

I have CEAW v.1.12 and installed v..2.10 under Matrix folder. Installed okay but now I have no sound. I had sound with V1.12. Haven't changed any soundcard, drivers, etc. How can I get sound for V2.10. I turned on fullscreen and checked "enable sound."

Thanks all.

I guess it just doesn't want to work on my main PC. Worked fine on my work PC. No big deal. Thanks for trying.

Just wanted to mention to everyone that there are a number of people that play the game despite
how dead the matrix forum is. Everyone posts on the Slitherine.com forum and there are even some
AAR's of current games.

The slitherine forum is here:

I had all of the same problems. I have v1.12. I had to install v2.1 in the same folder as the game to make it work. No sound to start but I started a game as axis. This way I could click on the options box and check both boxes under Audio (sound effects, music). Version 2.1 seems to work. Hope this helps.

Trouble here too. I have the original game from Matrix and have done everything I can to try to get this to work without success.

Driving me nuts. Almost as bad as the APOS upgrades. Almost.

I followed laramieela's advice and I got it working. Thanks.

Is there any way to increase the resolution?

I could never get the original game to work on my Windows 7 computer and don't know if I still have the install. I'm also pretty sure my download period has expired. So does anyone know what my best course of action would be -- including a way to find out whether the new edition will even run on my computer?

Big problem for download the file, the max speed is 300 ko/s, and the download stop before the end with an error message, "source file cannot be read try later"

Any solution ?
