if you downloaded and installed the old Gizmotron Mod or the previous Uncommon Valor test patch you should be able to drop this into the same spot and over-write all of the older files. you're old maps might not be playable without some serious re-edits, though.

I'm still playing the game on XP... so I extracted it the Program Files\Atari\Axis & Allies folder and that should be enough to get it running.

My game continually crashes, I have a log file to send in, but do not know where to go yet. Is there another patch? My system is windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

It should be placed in (If you kept the defaults):

C:\Program Files (x86)\Atari\Axis & Allies

the WW2 mode is not ready. all things considered, I don't expect WW2 to be playable for several more months at the earliest. I have done no trouble-shooting or bug-testing for it at this time. I advise against playing WW2 games for the time being.

game crashes also appear to be common with newer versions of Windows. not sure if there's really a fix for it-- since the game is now over 10 years old.
