Not sure I have Vista 64 and have played GR (original) on it. However I had lost my 1st set of GR disks years ago so I had bought a more recent GR Gold set that had everything on it including patches.

i have all 3 original disks incl.desert seige and island thunder

they seem to install ok with no hangups ."also installed in specific order of age" recon 1/desert/island

im wondering if this is a graphics card specific problem?

i will try getting the gold set ,but i want to make sure first

actually this might be worth a note ,the actual first recon disk is an ubisoft revival copy not the first made ones

the other 2 are originals

Have a look at the ike.log and options.xml files in the game's root folder.

1. Do the files exist?

2. Anything unusual reported in ike.log?

3. Does options.xml contain a valid entry for screen resolution (e.g. "<VideoResolution Width = "1024" Height = "768" BitDepth = "16"/>")?

Please create a new empty text file with Notepad and save it as 'options.xml' in your main Ghost Recon folder (C:\Program Files\Red Storm Entertainment\Ghost Recon\options.xml). See if that helps.
