Hey all, 

I am just trying to reinstall WaW on a windows 10 machine but it doesn't seem to want to take? Anyone else have this issue or is it WaW doesn't like Windows 10?

If your doing a manual install ( outside of Steam) failure rate is high.. there are a lot of files (patches) to apply..   Steam addresses all this with a single install. However, there is a cost.

What are you using for an antivirus scanner ???

So insert dvd into player. When auto run starts decline it.

Open windows explorer open the  dvd.

Right click on the setup.exe .

Under the compatibility tab select run this program in compatibility mode for and select xp service pack 3.

Also select run as an administrator. Click apply

XI servers for WAW do not use punkbuster so I recommend you do not install it. You will get an error when you launch the game but get rid of it and go find a server.

As for the game patches

1.1

1.2

1.3

1.4

1.5

1.6

1.7

You can skip one or all not my place to say what is right or wrong. I install all of them in sequence. 

 That should get you up and running.

Failure rate is not high.  Stop spreading misinformation.  If you know what your doing, it works every time.  Install, patch, run DX10 setup, restore profiles.  

Please Don't attack me … I gave my opinion after dealing with dozens of users trying to do a manual install through patches from start to finish .. You gave my answer in your attack on me.. "If you know what your doing" .. most users don't.  thus point made...
