The game runs fine on an old computer that runs Windows XP, but I would like to run it in Vista if at all possible. Any suggestions?

Vista+ EaW+FoC works fine..
*trust me Ive been running it for months.. *
As far as why there is an exception .. no clue.. The fact that the original runs.. tells me its not your vista setup anymore as much as its a problem with your FoC installation..
Have you modified it in any way?

I reinstalled the game several times.
Tried several graphic-drivers.
Reinstalled audio and chipset drivers.
All with no result.
Problem with Geforce 8?
Problem with Intel P35?
Problem with SATA-DVD drives?
I'll organize an old PATA drive to exclude the last, maybe its a problem with SecuRom.

Removed 2GB RAM: works.
Looks like the game or Vista has a problem with 4GB(~3.5 in 32bit) RAM.
PS: I tested both pairs.
Capped the Vista RAM with bcdedit /set TRUNCATEMEMORY
3 GB: works
3,1 GB: works
3,2 GB: works
3,3 GB: works
3430 MB: works
3435 MB: works
3440 MB: crash
3,4 GB: crash
(1 GB=1024 MB)

Wouldnt affect the 64 bit version however..
Maybe if he could list his syst. specs.

Why does it happen in vista 64 bit?
How did eaw run and then FoC not?
anyone else with more than 3.5 gb of ram have issues with FoC?, it may not be a vista problem after all. *or it may just be a vista problem*
Its not like at the release of EaW or FoC having more than 3gb of ram was unrealistic..

It seems to be a Vista problem.

Even more odd is, it only happens with FoC. The original EaW works fine with Vista 64 bit and 4gb ram.
Two different executeables, even though it is the same game the code isn't. So it's clearly a bug in FoC.
Yes it happens to me as well with Vista 64 bit. Exact same problem. I had to pull out two sticks of 2x1 gb ram to get FoC working. A bit annoying, but it's not a major crisis. I would however like to see it patched asap.

New PC , 4 GB Ram , Vista 64 Ultimate and same Problem and same Errormessage.
FoC is the only Game witch didnīt run on my PC.
Even old DX7 Games (Hearts of Iron2) runs without problem and even without Compartibile Mode

Securom probably does quite some tricky things, and FoC might use a slightly newer version that does something slightly wrong on Vista under these mentioned circumstances.
I know I'm entering a grey area here, but try running the game from a no-cd 'patch' (I mean, you already have the authentic game), which has Securom stripped or disabled. Make sure to get the patch for the correct FoC version, and make sure to back up your original files from the patch.
