Note: Knowing problem with campaign playing. Old DoW engine is not truly compatible with Windows 7. (Maybe Windows Vista and Windows 8 too. No any problems under Windows XP 32bit.) The problem is only in the end of some Strongholds in campaign. Sometimes DoW game crash after playing outro before end-mission-screen. Resolving: Use DoW in compatibility mode with WinXP. Save game in the end of Stronghold mission (before outro). If game crash after outro then reload game in compatibility mode and load save. If game crash again then try compatibility with Win98/Me. (Do not use Win98/Me mode for play. Sometimes game work incorrect in this mode. Use it only for resolving problem.) In this mode we can avoid this problem with more probability (irregular crash). This is software problem. DoW1 is very old game now without any support from Relic. ;( TWM is not guilty...
