I am looking at picking a few games from Matrix including this one but checking win 10 x64 issues.. I tried the links here and they all are not working in the tech area... So does this game run in win 10 unlike my copy of WITP:AE without workarounds?

Thanks in Advance.

NM, found the issue with the tech forum. I could not read it as guest so I had to login.... But still game worth it? I love this period of history.

It is Windows 10 stable. The only thing you must do is run it as an administrator. This is true of many games which access files outside the game. Unlike WITP:AE which does require some modifications, English Civil War just necessitates an admin start, which I do on a right click to access the menu.

I had problems with windows 10 admin rights and they were enabled. Never have ever had problems with games before running. Have not tried since latest patch I moved on.

I dread trying this game on WIndows 10 as ACW2 will not run on Win 10 for me even when playing as an Administrator - it just keeps on telling me that I do not have rights!
That's why I am keeping it on my old Win 7 PC as at least I know it runs fine on there, albeit slowly.

I had a similar problem when I tried to rename a hidden file ( after unhiding it ). Hidden files require a higher permissions level than that usually allotted to Administrators. To possibly fix your problem :-

Right click on the games exe and click on Properties. Select the Security tab and check the permissions available. Click on the lines for both your name and Administrators in the top box, to view the appropriate permissions. Both your name and the Administrators should show Full Control as checked in the bottom box. If not, click on Edit and ( in the new Window )"check" ( click on ) whichever Full Control boxes are not marked with a tick. A tick will appear in the box/es. Click on Apply and then OK to close the new Window and OK again on the old ( properties ) Window to finish.

If both your name and Administrators are already checked as Full Control, then you do indeed have a problem. Perchance the issue may then be the permissions available via your Video card...

Further to my last post - Is it possible that when you installed the game, you forgot to accept ( "Check" ) the Terms and Conditions applicable ?

That could be the problem here ( as an alternative to my last posts comments )...

If that's possible, then uninstall the game and reinstall it again ( and remember to "check" those "T&C's ).

I haven't had any O/S related issues with any of the AGEOD games on Windows 10, both home (desktop) and pro (laptop). I did change the location of the installation to a
folder on my D drive on both machines. The folders have permissions that allow any authenticated user to read and write to them, allowing me to run the
game from a non-admin account.

The only issue I've ever had with any AGEOD game has been from the AGE engine itself. The engine will crash after a large number of turns. This can be avoided by
the simple expedient of saving often and occasionally getting out and reloading the game. Doing this, I've successfully completed numerous GC in CWII and other
of the larger AGEOD titles.
