You may need to set some of the command options - see the latest whatnew file in the game directory.
I have the following for windows 7.
Properties of game shortcut:
"C:\Matrix Games\War in the Pacific Admiral's Edition\Beta2\War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe" -cpu2 -multiaudio -dd_sw -SingleCpuStart -archive

I run the game on Win8 and no issue so far, therefore is not the O.S. I guess.

Here, the first post of the thread, Michaelm is doing a great job!

Not necessary, after unzip the file just launch the .exe file and follow the istructions.
It automatically creates a folder named Beta2 and a desktop shortcut, in this way you can run both vanilla and beta games.
