Description

I know that there are a lot of people, who have problems starting Battle for Middle-earth or the expansion Rise of the Witchking on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8. The game is loading, but the window wont open. The problem is that the installer of the game writes some essential data, the options.ini, wrong. This program rewrites the data so that you can launch the game. The only thing you have to do is pressing a button! Here are the features: -Supports both: Battle for Middle-earth 2 and the expansion Rise of the Witchking -Should work with every language -You should be able to launch the game in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 after using the tool. -The tool is in English New in Version 1.1: -Error when clicking on fix fixxed.

Jeah, but this error has another reason. Looks like you did not uninstall a mod in a proper way. Uninstall the expansion and delete the folder with the windows explorer afterwards. This should erease any left data of mods. Then reinstall the expansion.

the game is not crack, but It looks like I need to adjust the compatibility with Windows 8, and so I did with Windows XP Service pack 2 (service pack 3 did not work) Windows 8 have this option and you can choose the game to be compatible with previous Windows,
Any ways, now is working!! I finally able to play this game again, I was about to give up on this one :)

Im running a windows 7 64 bit, and this worked for BFME2 but NOT for RotWK, while BMFE2 works just fine RotWK says "Please Insert Correct DVD-Rom" even though I have the disc inserted (and yes the correct disc).

For me it says that my normally missing folder does exist and that the fixxer won't work in that case but it did work, it also says that there is anoher problem but won't specify?

The fixer is only for one specific problem appearing on windows vista and later windows version. There also could be other problems why the game is not starting. Maybe you installed the wrong patch? You need the patch with the correct language and also the right one for either the EA downloader or the CD / DVD version. Also try running the game in compatibility mode and start it as admin.

The fixxer deletes the options and savegames, because the problem is there. But there should not be a need to run it before every start of the game, just run it once.
