They have been a few and from what I've seen there can be problems.

No problems running on Windows 8 64 bit for me.

Initially, I had trouble running it in Windows 8 64 bit while using Full Screen mode. There would be long delays when clicking on things, and moving the map was very slow. But switching to Windowed mode did the trick and the game worked fine. The same thing happened with War Plan Orange, for that matter.

However, after installing the latest beta patch, the game now works fine in both Windowed and Full Screen.

So, Kaleun...have you had any luck getting it to work yet?

I am still working on my 3 and a half year old Dell laptop. I am thinking of getting a new one and was wondering if I had to keep the old laptop just for this game.
I am so happy I don't have to.
Now to start looking at new systems.
