And all I get is a black screen.

I went and changed the compatibility mode for CAW (Quick Start) to both Vista and XP and it didn't fix the problem.

I seem to remember a problem using the "Game Menu" start. Try using the "Quick Start" and see if that helps (can find them using the Start button and going to the Carriers at War folder)

Thanks. The Game Menu option does nothing now; the Quick Start gets me to a black screen and some music at least.

I've tried to run it as an Administrator and as in various Compatibility modes (Vista, XP), but no luck.

I have a trouble ticket open through Matrix right now.

Through trial and error, I was able to get it to load by selecting "Disable desktop compositino" on my Compatibility options -- although the cursor still acts a bit flaky.
