I was recently forced to upgrade to Vista after my computer's HD went kabloowie. I cannot seem to get Homeworld 2 to run. It installs smoothly enough except for it first saying that the Direct X version it needs is not on the computer then stopping the install of Direct X 5.somethingorother because a higher version (x10) is already on the computer. So everything seems in order but when I click on the icon there is a lot of furious whirring and buzzing as if a program is going to start and then a minute or two later it all stops and the computer pretends nothing ever happened. No blank screen, no black screen, nothing but the same old desktop. I've also tried right clicking on the icon and running it in system administrator mode and Win XP compatibility mode and exactly nothing happens. This is quite frustrating as I would really like to blow up high resolution starships in a pretty manner and it seems there are few other alternatives for that sort of thing until Sins of a Solar Empire comes out, me not being an especially big fan of Eve Online and quite happy playing LOTRO atm.
