    OK, so after having updated EVERY driver and trying every sound fix and video fix possible, I decided to try one last ditch effort. I UNINSTALLED the audio completely, and the had windows install the generic windows drivers(dated 2006). guess what! IT WORKS. Thanks for all the effort HCI.

    SO just for giggles and since it hadn't been done in a long time, I reimaged my machine. Downloaded all available updates, installed WC4 AGAIN and same thing. blackness. I was finally able to get the VOB files in the WC4 folder to play, but I cannot get WC4 to load beyond a black screen.it Pegs...

    Didn't work with ddraw or opengl. must be something in the video playback?!? but no matter what codec pack I load it wont work. I'm 30 seconds away from wiping my HDD and starting from scratch.

    There is no wc4_debug.txt anywhere in the game folder. as I've said... it doesn't error out, it just freezes.

    I can do Alt-Tab to get to other applications or CTRL ALT DEL to open task manager to close out the WC4DVD.exe process. No sound... but I don't have to reboot.

    Yes... I have followed every suggestion relating compatibility mode, Codec packs, you name it. The short cut by default is set to win 98, disable desktop composition and to run as an admin.

    could this problem be with the Quartz.dll which the system is saying "file not found" for? (it IS there, I checked).
