A friend of mine started playing this wonderful game just recently after I recommended it to him.

He installed JA2 Gold and the 1.13 "mod" on his laptop with vista as an OS. He says he is starting the game just fine, running it fine, saving games fine, but when he tries to load his games, he gets an error: "Error when loading save".

Has anyone had this problem before?

A lot of trouble on vista is caused by file permissions. A game I just installed at home had all kinds of extra junk that vista users had to do to get it to work because of this. There have been other reports of JA2 trouble with vista here, just look around.

The most frequent solution I'm seeing is to install the game on an xp computer and copy the folder over to the vista computer, that seems to be working for alot people I've found in search.

Anyone have any specific experience with this?

UPDATE:

My friend got it working on vista by disabling the UAC in msconfig.exe

What's the "UAC"?

User Access Controls or something.

Basically vista wasn't letting JA2 make savegames, and disabling UAC kept vista from being able to deny JA2 that ability.

Hmm, i have the same problem, but i run Vista on geman, so UAC dosent help me a whole lot. Can you tell me what subfolder this option is, and what kind it is (i mean do you just click on a on/of button, or do you choose from a fall-down menu, is it on yhe top or the bottom of the list, etc.)

The subfolders in msconfig.exe , as accurate as i can translate them, are : Oveall/Start/Services/Sistem start/Tools

Cmon guys, please?Im kind of in a stupid situation here-my laptop wont work on XP, so i cant do the cpoy/paste thing... I just need you to tell meexactli where in the config menu this UAC is... im guessing that the translation in german is something entirely different, cos i spent an hour looking for it, but coudnt find it. Or maybe im stupid, i dunno. Either way, id reeealy like to play JA 2 again
