can anyone help i am being driven bananas by this new game i bought it's desert rats v afrika corps, i installed the game ok but when i click the desktop icon to play it starts to check the cd verification then nothing it just goes back to desktop, i have got win xp running on a athlon xp 2.6mhz chip, 128mb gforce 4000 agp card, 1 gig ddr ram, 120gig maxtor hard drive, soundblaster audigy 5.1 soundcard, all these specs far exceed what the game needs, but this visual runtime error which doesn't always come up i am sure is responsible for my game not working, i even tried the onboard graphics card but same result, the motherboard is an asus a7v8x-mx board. any help greatly appreciated.
thanks

Are all your drivers up-to-date including Directx?

Have you tried the game manufacturers web site? You will often find the answer to problems such as yours in the support section or FAQ's on that site.
