Nope, it annoyingly asks you to Allow access to the programwhich I've never seen Vista do for any other desktop application but other than that it works fine.

I have seen this with another Matrix game, Gary Grigsby's War "Between the States" and a backup program which needs administrator access.

BTW, GOA works fine for me under Vista.

I am having trouble getting GoA to run with Vista.

I've installed my original download. I've downloaded the latest patch (1.32). I've learned from other games that Vista does some wierd things if you install to the "Program Files" folder so I install all of my legacy games (games that aren't "Games for Windows") into a games folder.

When I attempt to run the game, I seems to start fine. I get the screen that allows me to select side, scenario, screeen resolution, special rules, etc. After I make my selections there, the game seems to disappear and be running (Task Manager shows trench.exe running) but I can't see it.

I am not having any other troubles with the computer. Other games run fine. All drivers are up-to-date.

Any ideas?

Regards,
Terry
