StarCraft / Win Vista (in Off-topic)
August 15 2009 2:31 PM EDT
So I dl'd the app from battle.net that allows you to dl the games you have purchased previously, but when I install the game to win vista, everytime I finish a game it blanks the screen and I have to hit enter and it kicks me out to windows. Yet another vista mystery... anyone know a fix?

ya I'm thinking about it...
first of all vista64 or 32?
Did you install all the patches?
Did you try the faq?
Did you try google?
try and run it in compatibility win9x that would solve it. or http://tinyurl.com/mskrek

I had a problem with the graphics. I run it in compatibility mode for XP (SP2), disabling visual themes and desktop composition.
Once that was done, I had no problems.

thnx for the replies... its' strange win vista = satan for gaming. I can't describe it I guess... whenever I finish a game, it makes a "ding" noise and black screen appears... if I hit "enter" then I pop back to windows and have to restart the game every time... it's annoying. I think just going to win xp is the answer. I hate vista....
dude you're trying to play a game that is designed for win98SE. Don't blame Vista for this blame Blizzard for not giving a functional patch so Starcraft can work with Vista.
Bah I so hate when people seem to blame Vista for everything, I even run the x64, never I had any problems with the games I play.
Including old games.
