For anyone who has a black screen after selecting a campaign and nothing else happens, make sure you download the patch and install it as well.

I cannot give advice for the Mac issue right now (I don't have one to test on), but I have a solution for it not recognizing the disk issue on Winows (on Win10 in particular). If you have it mounted as a disk drive properly, run the game in compatibility mode for Windows XP. I tried Windows 95 and 98/ME first and got that error. Running compatibility as Windows XP (Service Pack 3) resolved the issue.

Trying to play on Mac OS X, downloaded via CrossOver, mounted and installed fine with the provided CD Key, but the program requires the CD, and even though went the extra mile and spent $20.00 for a physical of it, it won't play. Out of ideas.

This DOES work just fine. That CD Key provided by... CD KEY ... Works. In order to use it, you need to use a tool like Daemon Tools Lite (the free version works for this purpose), and mount the file as a drive.

I installed with CD-Key. I start the game, and the game doesn't run. It just goes to a black screen and says the program stopped working. I'm running Windows 8.1. I can't believe how much time I wasted downloading this and installing it.

You want to download a program called Daemon Tools Lite to mount the .rng file. This program essentially "mounts" the .rng file as if you had put it into a optical drive/CD slot. I hope you guys come back and check these comments I'd hate for you to miss out on the nostalgia bomb.

So I got this downloaded and installed (CD key was easy to find) but how do I play this without a cd? when I go to run it tells me there is no disk in the drive.

This just gives me a war2.rng file and I have no idea how to use that to play the game... maybe its just user error but Im at a loss of what to do with this...

I was very excited about playing this after so many years, but game requires a cd key which I don't see provided anywhere. Oh well, was worth a shot.
