Seems to work on Vista 64. Got to find time to give it an extended test.

Well, unfortunately, it's looking more and more like your shared-memory radeon is the culprit. One last thing I would try, if it were me, would be to change to the ATI reference drivers for your card. AMD will tell you that is not a good idea, especially for Toshiba's, since they modify the OEM drivers for their laptops. You can give it a shot but you might want to consult a friend that is more computer savvy to give you a hand in case you have to revert back to the OEM drivers. If that does not allow the game to run, you will have to blame ATI and not Windows...

All I can say is it certainly seems to fix Vista for both games, cant speak for Win7

Just an update it appears though not enough people to confirm if you are willing to pay Microsoft will fix the problem, they need the money after all.
Win 7 is backwards compatible if you get the Pro Version, for all of you with Home tough you got shafted give us some money & upgrade.

Thumbs up Re: Windows 7 *GUARANTEED* fix

Tried it under WinPro7 64-bit for both WinSPWW2 & WinSPMBT and it works as fix for Full Screen (if machine specs are interesting for you let me know).
Thanks to NCrawler for the idea & file

Win7Pro 64-bit quad core 2.66 CPU 4gig RAM 8800Ultra GPU

The fix cured the funky paletes. But the game itself runs very slow and choppy (full screen). Moving around the map is slow and tedious. AI movement and Artillery animations are also slow and choppy. If it was an FPS I might be tempted to say laaaaaag.

Getting there, keep at it. I'd love to pull my old XPpro machine off of the desk, I need the space.

Whoops forgot to mention. Runs like a champ in windowed mode just megasmall.

Looks like I'm finally forking over the dough. Well worth it for all the years of stress relief.

Don, Andy, thank you.

JUST,
R
