Hello,

I recently bought this game but I cannot run it. I always get error 818. I have windows 10.
I try reinstall game, set compatibility mode and run it as a admin but nothing help.

welcome to the forum, sorry about your issues, have you tried any of the suggestions in this thread?

hope some of them work, as the game does in windows 10

Hi Hubidus,

Like you I had the same issue after installing the latest full install.

So instead of installing : WarPlanOrange-SetupRelease-v1205u.exe

Install : WarPlanOrange-SetupRelease-v100DR.exe
Update : WarPlanOrange-UpdateCompRelease-v1205u.exe

Be warned though WPO runs like thick poop on my Windows 10 machine.
Out of curiosity (and basically wasting a day...) I installed a virtual Windows 7 machine and it runs both games like poop hitting the fan

Wish I had checked the tech part of the forum and the return policy of Matrix before buying these obsolete games.
Sure there is a sale and I did get enough value for money in my binge, but it still leaves a slightly bitter taste.

I've caved in and made my system dual boot (again).

Windows 10 Pro x64 main
Windows 7 Ultimate x64 legacy

Better be prepared for more legacy games that don't like W10 - although in general most games seem to work fine.
