Brothers In Arms
Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone has got BIA running on vista 64 Home Premium? My
DVD spins up, but there is no autorun, and when I explore the DVD drive, and
find the setup icon, set its properties to run as admin, still it fails to
even start to install. Same with compatibility mode for XPsp2. Any
suggestions anyone? NB: system is- HD2900, 8GB 800mhz ram, ATi SB600 mobo,
and all powered by an overclocked E2140 (waiting for quad to arrive), SATA
DVD, and 1.1 TB of storage, PhysX and X-Fi fatality. Does the game have any
particular security on disc that could be preventing the autorun, and is
there any fix, eg safedisc thing on some EA titles?

I've had a few apps do that on Vista64 too. Looks like we are SOL and best
to dual boot with XP for those games and apps. That's what I am doing.
