This game is using StarForce DRM which doesn't supported by new Windows versions, so NoCD is required if you want to play the game. As alternative, if you don't want to use NoCD - you can play the game on Virtual Machine with Windows XP, StarForce works on Windows XP

The game with NoCD has been tested on Windows 7 64-bit and Windows 10, works fine, the game supports widescreen. The game was using infamous StarForce DRM that can break your system, so make sure to install NoCD before the first launch of the game! Check our Guide and Notes for more details

  • Install the game (if autorun doesn't work - simply launch the installation from Setup.exe inside the disc)
  • Ignore the installation of GameSpy and Gameshadow. It was apps for multiplayer, but they doesn't work anymore
  • At the end of installation the installer will ask "Run the game?", make sure to uncheck that box, otherwise StarForce drivers will be installed on your system
  • Also it is recommended to install DirectX from the disc (if you're using Windows 10 - enable DirectPlay, read this or this guide how to do it)
  • After you installed the game - install NoCD (simply copy files from the archive and put it into game folder, agree to replace original files)
  • Open the game folder and find Ardennes.exe. Right click on Ardennes.exe - Properties - Compatibility - Set "Run this app in compatibility mode with Windows 2000 or XP" and "Run as administrator"
  • Launch the game and play. If the game doesn't work - try to launch the game in compatibility mode with old versions of Windows (Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP)


  • If the installation doesn't start - try to launch Setup.exe in compatibility mode with old version of Windows (Win98, Win2000, XP or Vista)
  • It is recommended to install old versions of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for the correct work of the game
  • Also it is recommended to install RAD Video Tools and K-Lite Codec Pack for the correct work of in-game videos
  • The game was using infamous StarForce DRM so make sure to install NoCD before the first launch!
  • The game works on DirectX 9, so if you're using Windows 8, 8.1, 10 or 11 - you need to enable DirectPlay: Go to Control Panel, and select 'Programs'. Select 'Turn Windows features on and off', click on 'Legacy Components' and check the box 'DirectPlay'. Select OK, once the installation is done, restart your computer
  • For users of Windows 64-bit systems: if the game doesn't work after you launched it - open Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del by default) and check for processes Ardennes.exe and rundll32.exe. Close Ardennes.exe but don't touch rundll32.exe (it's a Windows app for running old apps from 32-bit operational systems, most old games running through rundll32.exe). Now try to launch the game again, it must work. Don't forget to close rundll32.exe process in Task Manager after finishing playing
