I just bought the wolf pack off Steam and this game was included. I installed it, but when I try to play it, it stops working. It checks for solutions for a few seconds, then quits. I never get any options besides cancel. I use Windows 7 btw, and it's not a crappy PC. Why can't I run this game?

I have the disc I bought back in 2002, and it works fine on Vista... Are your drivers all updated? Try running the program in Administrator mode. I usually run in Administrator mode cuz my autoexec.cfg files never seem to run if I run in normal mode.

All my drivers are updated. How do I run in admin mode? I thought I was in admin mode because my computer only has one profile. I don't know what mode I'm running in, so how do you switch?

I don't use Windows 7, but I know in Vista, if you right click and .exe file or shortcut, a menu will appear, one of them will say "Run in Administrator Mode".

No such thing appears when I right click. However, a strange thing has happened. Only when I open it from steam, it gives me the option to run either multiplayer or single player. If I choose single player, I get the same problem as mentioned above. If I start multiplayer, it actually runs and I get the multiplayer options. But when I try to switch to single player from that menu, it still stops working. Any advice?

can't really help you at all, since I don't own the Steam version. Maybe you can try posting on the Steam RtCW board.
