Bf1942 and BF2 crashing to desktop before entering title screen

It is happening all the time. I can't even enter the game. Neither can a lot of other people I know.

Another person saying - I had the same problem several months ago. At first I wrote it off as some Win 10 glitch, but when it happened again on Win 7 and Linux (under Wine) I understood some of the game files got corrupted. So I guess clean reinstall should fix your problem.

I'm saying - something similar has happened to me, when I installed fhsw in a folder and move to another, after that started to always give execution error, I had to restart the pc and do a new installation.

I think this can help them.

Try using a vm maybe? Or moving on previous w10 version.

Previous W10 version is saved for only yesterday. So nothing there. Since I lost my disk, I have been using an online download version. But all of the capability fix downloads I have found require a CD...

Do you still have your cd key?
i remember that for installing bf42 on w10 with origin, i had to dl a strange origin version (cracked or something like this), and i don't remeber how but at the end i was able to activate it with my cd key.
Maybe if i send you mt bf42 files it will work?

Hey buddydog, are you still having problems? I am using the battlefield 1942 version downloaded legally from the internet (battlefield 1942 is abandonware) with my own cd key and everything works perfectly. No CD are needed. Maybe I could help you.

Thanks, I got it working a few days ago. Apparently running Direct Play and compatibility mode at the same time screws the program up.
