Eddie, Here is Jason's answer from the Matrix site:
"Using Firefox or Chrome.
First, go here: Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package
Install the package linked above.
Next, I'd install the game from scratch.
Next, go here: 2.02 DOWNLOAD Using Firefox or Chrome.
UNZIP that package.
Double click the EXE, let it install.
After it has installed, use Windows Explore to browse to your John Tiller's Campaign Series folder
Locate and select a file named "autorun.exe".
Press the right mouse button and select "Properties".
Click on the "Compatibility" tab.
Tick the option "Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 3).
Tick the option "Run this program as an administrator".
Click on "Apply" and "Ok". Double click on "autorun.exe" for running the program and check if the issue persists.
At this point, it should work. If not....
PHASE IV (Optional)
If it does, enter each of the game folders and repeat the process for each of the game Application files:
For example: East Front.exe, ef.exe, efedit.exe, efmap.exe, eforg.exe.
After this, you should be golden.
NOTE: You can create a short cut to your desktop from East Front.exe (West Front.exe or Rising Sun.exe ) and you can run the game directly from there.
Hope that helps
