Is your settings matching your screen or less (or totally off?) check: game.setGameDisplayMode (mine is: 1920 1080 32 60 so is my screen)

check this matches: GAMEDIR REG_SZ C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942
BF1942 is NOT gone run from anywhere else than "C:\Program Files\" ...

Not sure what patch I did but after patching it my
bf1942.exe MD5 sum is: 15CB9657CAB34CAD6B4E5B23E11E4B97
and it will run 1920x1080, no serial stuff, or gamespy crap etc.p/quote]
Does this prevent the entire game from running at all? Literally nothing shows when I try to run the exe...
INTEL GRAPHICSduffman wrote:I have had some issues with Intel Graphics on a lot motherboards/laptops because they didnt bother adding support for previous versions of OpenGL (and probably Direct X).
I was having the same problem with some older games on windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I finally figured out why my games would not start and why I was getting the error "access denied - please login as administrator." Microsoft recently released a new update (new to me anyway) and it automatically downloads this and the windows 10 upgrade icon, so if you want to be able to play your games un-install this windows update (and mark it as a hidden update so it won't re-install) KB3086255. Now every pc is different, so I don't know if this applies to just windows 7, or all versions of windows released after XP. My computer is a personally built system, not that it makes a difference, so I can't guarantee this will work for every windows 7 pc.
so if you want to be able to play your games un-install this windows update KB3086255
