Drop Team in Vista

Recommended Posts

I "upgraded" my home machine to Vista Business and reinstalled DropTeam. I am unable to get DropTeam to run under Vista. Anyone running DropTeam under Vista?

When I start the game, the screen goes blank and then I get a message that DropTeam Main.exe has stopped working. I have tried a clean install and then ran the update.exe program to upgrade DropTeam. I have tried setting compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2 for the exe files.

Thanks Clay. I didn't realize that I didn't have proper Vista drivers. Downloaded the drivers and the game runs fine.

Strange none of my other games complained about the lack of Open GL drivers. Of course, the other games might not be using Open GL.

Thanks again for your helpful response.
