My apologies if this problem has already been addressed on this forum, but I have searched all over and have not been able to resolve this issue on my own.
I recently installed my old copy of Medieval Total War 2: Gold Edition from a CD-ROM onto a new laptop that runs Windows 8. I installed the game no problem and proceeded to play about 80ish turns over the last couple of days. I had to restart my computer on Saturday to install mandatory updates, but after the updates were installed I was unable to load Total War.
My computer gives me this prompt: This application is not compatible with the installed operating system. Please upgrade to Windows 98SE, Windows 2000 or better.
This prompt is titled as "Kingdoms," which is odd because I have only been playing MTW2 and not any of the expansion yet.
I have tried running the program in compatibility mode to no avail, and I don't know if I should install the patches or not.
If anyone could give me help it would be greatly appreciated.
