CMSF NATO start up issue

Recommended Posts

So i just installed cmsf nato and it seemed to install fine but when i click launch nothing happens at all. I've tried running as administrator but that also doesn't solve the issue. I get no error codes and have tried opening it directly from the install file and everything. Please help!

Was this install of the CMSF NATO module over a fully patched CMSF 1.21 installation ? CMSF NATO does NOT operate by itself, but requires the base CMSF game to run. If you DO have a CMSF install that's been patched to 1.21, then it is possible that the NATO module got installed to the incorrect directory (or possibly its own directory within the game). That would result in a game executable that wouldn't run fully since most of the game files would be missing in that installation.

You may want to double-check where your CMSF installation is at and attempt to run that (just to check that it is still functioning). Run the CMSF NATO installation again and double-check the installation path to ensure it matches the actual location of the working CMSF game.

It was the CMSF NATO alone, on the website i read that it can operate alone but i guess that was wrong. Alright so i'll do that, should be an easy fix. I'll let you know if i have any other issues; thanks a lot.

You have the CMSF base game now with the NATO module and it will not work ?

You may need to check you security/anti-virus software and make sure that there are exceptions for the game executables AND for the 'Runservice.exe' file in your Windows directory. Runservice.exe is the copy-protection system which can get interfered with or quarantined by some security software. The game executables can also get quarantined by some security programs.

This Knowledgebase article on 'CMSF won't launch' also mentions the possible need for DEP (Data Execution Prevention) settings. The link within the first article goes to this Knowledgebase article on DEP.

Also here is another Knowledgebase article on reinstalling CMSF and its modules.
