The start menu, quick start and EXE file, none of them can be run.
My OS is Windows 7 SP1 64bit.

What happens we have attempt to run the game? What error message comes up?

Can you also give us some details of your systems specs (e.g. video card, memory, CPU, etc).

Cheers

Pip

After I click the play button in start menu, nothing happens , no error , no message , no response.....Doulbe click the .exe file is the same.
So I don't konw how to describe my proble
I'm sure I have played the game maybe twice or 4 times . But after a few day the problem occurred .
I've tried to re-install the game but it doesn't work.
My laptop is acer aspire 4830tg.

Hi, try this:
Open the folder where you've installed the game. Locate a folder named "redist" and open it. Find a file named "DXSETUP.exe" and run. This will reinstall DirectX again.
Runt he game and check if there's any difference.

Have you made any changes to your computer in that time? Installing new hardware or software?  If you were able to play before but not now, we might start by looking at what changed in that time.

Thank God I can see the lovely PanzerV.
I uninstall the game and delete all the folder left , and then install the game to another folder , it's ok now.
The only change I can remember is I've change the folder's icon to the game's icon -- I'd like to customize folder's icon with its contents.
Is that the reason?? I don't know .

Thank you very much

Glad you were able to get it working. I think changing the folder icon may have been what caused it -- I tried it myself and had the same problem you described afterwards.  I haven't looked into it in detail, but I suspect Windows is changing some other folder information when you do this, which prevents the game EXE from being able to run.

FYI for anyone running in to this issue: When you change the icon, Windows automatically changes the directory / folder so that it is read-only. While there are ways to fix this there isn't an easy one -- you can google for "Windows 7 read only problem" to find some solutions on the web though. Or you can re-install.
