Hello,
Everything else seems to work.
When I press the Game Manual button I get a mouse icon flicker (like it is trying to initiate something) but nothing pops up.
If this has to do with the delayed release of the printed manual please excuse this post.

Thanks for any help,
Cheers,
Alex

the manual opens with word as it's a doc file, or so is the What's New part anyway, if you haven't got word, then try open office, as it's free, but there is others as well, as soon as you install a reader, same as what you do for PDF files etc, once you press on the manual button, the manual will appear in your default app or program etc.

so just to be sure you can read both, make sure you have a PDF reader and a word reader on the pc, then your sorted what ever the file format is in etc

Also if you are on Windows 10, the button will only work if you have set Microsoft Edge as the default pdf reader.
IF you want to read with Adobe Reader, you'll have to open the game installation folder, find the folder named "manuals" and double click in the pdf file.

Thanks zakblood - I have both Word 2016 and Adobe reader. Still nothing when pressing the "Game Manual" button, even with word pre-launched.
If it helps, I don't see a game manual file in my "Operational Art of War IV" folder.
Also don't see a "What's new" file either, so perhaps I'm looking in the wrong folder.

VPaulus - can't find the folder "Manuals". Where is it nested?
Thanks,
Alex

As I've said in my previous post, the pdf are inside the game's "Manuals" subfolder "Manuals".

Sorry, I wasn't clear.
I have no "Manuals" folder, or subfolder.
I have - Graphics Override, My Fonts, Saves, Scenarios, and Sound.
Let me try to reinstall, perhaps it didn't unpack the first time for some reason.
(And yes, I checked all the listed folders for a subfolder "manuals"
Cheers,
Alex

your are looking in the "my documents" folder but the game will be installed somewhere else which is where you will find the "manual" folder - check the install location when you reinstall or look at the properties of the launcher icon
