    Medal of Honor 2010 - Errors, Crashes, Freezes, Bugs, and Fixes

    There is no way, for a developer to fix everything that will be faced by people who will be playing the game. Anyway, will save this talk for another day. Here are some of the most frequent errors, freezes, crashes, and bugs faced by people while playing the game.

    1. Medal of Honor 2010 Controls Bug

      Started playing the game but the soldier automatically starts moving to a certain direction ?. Can’t change anything on the menu screen because of repeated up/down movements of cursor ?. This issue is arising because Medal of Honor 2010 automatically uses your controller, so if you have any controller plugged in, unplug the controller and the issue will be resolved.
    2. You Have Been Kicked From the Server” at Class Selection

      If you face this while at Class selection screen of Medal of Honor, make sure you have Punkbuster installed.
    3. Medal of Honor 2010 Crashes and Freezing

      If you are facing random crashes and game freezes while playing Medal of Honor Operation Anaconda, try running the game in DirectX 9 or 10. It happens due to DirectX settings set to auto. How to Set DirectX Version
      Go to:

      Open settings.ini file with any text editor be it notepad.
      Now change DxVersion=Auto to DxVersion=10. If you want to run the game in DirectX 9, change the respective number, change 10 to 9 or 11.
    4. Medal of Honor 2010 Crash to Desktop

      1. Go to:

      If you can’t resolve this crash whatsoever then only solution is to Open “settings.ini” and under [WindowSettings] change fullscreen=”true” to fullscreen=”false” and play the game windowed for the time being. If you can get into Full List of Medal Of Honor 2010 Tweaks through the link.

    5. Medal of Honor 2010 Freezes

      If your Medal of Honor is randomly freezing, update your video card drivers will resolve this issue. On the side note, make sure your processor usage percentage is normal and you have enough available virtual memory to support/run the game smoothly.

    Medal of Honor 2010 Troubleshooting Guide:

    1. Medal of Honor 2010 Install Problems

      Medal of Honor will only install and run on machines installed with Windows XP (SP3), Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7.
    2. To install from the Medal of Honor DVD

      1. Start your machine and wait for the Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7 operating system to load.

      2. Place the Medal of Honor DVD in the DVD drive.

      3. Windows will automatically detect the DVD and launch the autorun options, from which the user can select to begin the installation. Follow the on-screen instructions to install Medal of Honor. If needed, DirectX 9.0c will be installed or upgraded during the game installation.

      4. The installer will prompt for the CD Key which is provided either in your confirmation email, your game manual/packaging, or game card.

      5. It is optional to install Punkbuster. For online play we strongly recommend installing Punkbuster since it’s required in order to join Punkbuster enabled servers. Only Punkbuster enabled servers will report your stats, so in order to progress in ranks, receive unlocks and gain stats you will need to have Punkbuster running and play on Punkbuster enabled servers.

      6. The installer will prompt how you want to authenticate your copy of Medal of Honor. Disc authentication requires the Medal of Honor disc in the drive to be able to play. Online authentication requires an internet connection but doesn’t require the Medal of Honor disc in the drive to be able to play.

      Note. With online authentication you get an unlimited number of activations. Activation happens automatically the first time you run the game on a new machine. Once a machine has been activated you can play without an online connection. You are allowed to activate the game on up to 5 new machines in any given 60 day time period.
      When you go to activate on a new machine, you can do so on that machine as long as you have activated on less than 5 new machines in the last 60 days. Effectively, for every activation on a new machine, 60 days later your number of available activations will increase by 1.
      Previous activations are never lost. At any time, including if you have currently run up against your limit, you can deactivate a currently activated machine to reclaim that activation for use on a different machine.

      7. For XP users, the installation program adds the program group Electronic Arts/Medal of Honor to your Start/Programs menu, and a shortcut to your desktop (optional). Click on this shortcut or alternatively click on the start button on your Windows task bar.
      Under Programs/Electronic Arts/Medal of Honor select “Medal of Honor” to play. For Vista/Win 7 users, the title will be added to the Games Explorer. From the Start menu, go to All Programs/Games and run Games Explorer.

      Note. If the Auto insert notification feature has been disabled or the DVD is not recognized, run AutoRun.exe from the root directory of the DVD to begin the installation program.

      For Medal of Honor Digital Download installation:

      Please contact the digital retailer through whom you purchased this game for instructions on how to install the game or how to download and reinstall another copy of the game.

      Note. It is optional to install Punkbuster. For online play we strongly recommend installing Punkbuster since it’s required in order to join Punkbuster enabled servers.
      Only Punkbuster enabled servers will report your stats, so in order to progress in ranks, receive unlocks and gain stats you will need to have Punkbuster running and play on Punkbuster enabled servers.

      How to Uninstall and Deauthenticate:

      To uninstall Medal of Honor, click on the Start menu and select Settings\Control Panel (XP) or Control Panel (Vista/Win 7).
      Now select Add or Remove Programs (XP) or Programs and Features (Vista/Win 7). Scroll down the list until you see Medal of Honor, select it and click on Change/Remove (XP) or Uninstall (Vista/Win 7) to uninstall.

      If you’ve chosen online authentication during the Medal of Honor installation the uninstall process will automatically deauthenticate the system and update your available licenses accordingly. This process requires an internet connection to be present.

      To deauthenticate a machine’s online authentication without un-installing:
      For XP Users, From the Start menu, go to All Programs/Electronic Arts/Medal of Honor and select “Medal of Honor(tm) – Deauthorize this machine”.

      For Vista/Win 7 users, From the Start menu, go to All Programs/Games and run Games Explorer. Right click the Medal of Honor icon and select “Medal of Honor(tm) – Deauthorize this machine”.

      DirectX Problems:

      You can find the DirectX directory in the DVD or installation folder of your digitally downloaded game. If you face issues play Medal of Honor with your current DirectX installation, try the one that comes with the game.

      How to Install DirectX 9.0c manually:

      Medal of Honor comes with DirectX 9.0c and will install it during installation. If you would like to install it manually, browse to the Medal of Honor installation package folder, open the “\DirectX” folder and click the on DXSETUP.exe

      DirectX 9.0c and supported hardware:

      It is highly recommended that you ensure that your computer’s components are utilizing the most recent DirectX 9.0c compatible software drivers. Please consult your card manufacturer for their newest drivers.

      Other Known Issues:

      If your system is not using the latest drivers please consider obtaining an updated driver. Doing this may also give you benefits such as increased performance, the elimination of a technical problem and new component features.

      1. It is not recommended to use Alt+Tab or Alt+Enter commands in-game, as game functionality may be interrupted.

      2. If the game audio sounds unbalanced, please ensure that any audio enhancements available to your sound card are disabled.

      3. ATI Catalyst Control Center users who have deselected the Anti-Aliasing option “Use Application Settings” should disable Anti-Aliasing in the Medal of Honor Video settings.

      4. It is highly recommended that you ensure that your computer’s components are utilizing the most recent DirectX 9.0c compatible software drivers. Please consult your card manufacturer for their newest drivers.

      5. You can change what DirectX version the game will use in the settings.ini. Default value is DxVersion=auto you can change it to either 9, 10 or 11 (DirectX 10 and DirectX 11 are only supported in the multiplayer portion of Medal of Honor).

      The auto setting chooses the highest DX version possible on your system.
      The settings.ini file is located in your documents folder in a sub folder \EA Games\Medal of Honor\Multiplayer. You can access it by opening an Explorer window and clicking on My Documents (XP) or Documents (Vista/Win 7).

      Open the Medal of Honor\Multiplayer folder and edit the settings.ini file. Please note that the setting.ini file will be created the first time you run Medal of Honor.

      6. Players using a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card and Windows Vista/7 who are playing in 5.1 surround sound may not experience sound from the center speaker.

      7. Players using a Hercules Gamesurround Fortissmo II sound card and Windows XP who are playing in 5.1 surround sound may not experience sound from the center speaker.
    3. Medal of Honor Low Performance Issues:

      The only probable reason is that the DirectX is set to auto and cause failure of graphics results, set it 9 or 10 manually and everything will be resolved.
    4. Game Crashes After the Round is Over

      Seems to be a problem with the crossfire guys mostly, if you are one of them, only solution to this issue is starting the game in DirectX 10. Or if it still persists, run it on one GPU.
    5. Medal of Honor Connection Issues, Can’t Connect to Server

      1. How to Fix “Can’t Login to EA Account”
      Go to:

      Now open hosts file and edit the EA servers. Default.

      All you need to do is add # in front of 127.0.0.1 so, it looks like this:

      Or you can try this free utility, and see if it optimizes your connection to bypass this issue.
    6. Medal of Honor 2010 Xbox 360 Controller Fix

      Apparently Xbox 360 controller on PC doesn’t go well with the Medal of Honor, turning and strafing commands are conflicting with each other. It seems like gamepad programming tab is broken in game, which makes the controller enable to work with the game on PC. There is also problem with the right stick sensitivity, it’s just too much to control or move player. You can try utilities like Xpadder to make it work, worth a try. I have been searching around for past two days now for the probable fix but no luck, will update once I have it.
    7. Medal of Honor Blue Screen of Death

      If you face BSOD, there are probable reasons for that. You are low on memory, virus, system drivers, overclocked PC heated up, or your power supply has gone bad. Checking every possibility may resolve this for you.
    8. Can’t Join Any Server “Windows Vista/Windows 7″

      If you are unable to join any server and you are on Windows Vista/ Windows 7, run the game as administrator to resolve this issue. It can be other connection issues reported above but may be you are one the lucky guys, who will have it resolved by running the game as admin.
    9. Medal Of Honor 2010 Graphics Bugs

      • Update your drivers
      • Backdate your drivers
      • Running Crossfire or SLI?, Disable it.
      • If you have Overclocked your PC or video card? Back it down to stock.
      • Try a different resolution.
      • Play around with all the settings, one by one, see if there is a specific one that’s causing problems.
      • Make sure your card can handle the game and is not overheating they all may be due to overheating.
    10. Connection Interrupted “EA Servers are not currently unavailable”

      Problem faced by the Steam users, that whenever they click Server Browser, this error pops up saying ea servers are currently unavailable. Close the Steam, and re-run it and now join the server and you will be able to enter into match.
    11. Medal of Honor 2010 White Screen

      Not really a common error but if you are someone at the receiving end, experiencing this error on loadout screens, update your graphic card drivers, directx and other hardware drivers.
    12. Game Freezes on Server Login Screens

      If you are game is freezing on server login screens or other instances while loading map or enter into the match server. It’s time to update your video card drivers.
    13. Black Menu Music and Mouse Only

      You started the game, and can hear music, and can see mouse all else is black screen. Another issue related to Steam, fix it turning off the Steam community overlay for the game. In your Library, right click on Medal of Honor and go to properties. The menu that pops up should have a check box with the option “Enable Steam Community In-Game.” Uncheck it and try again.
    14. How to Uninstall Medal of Honor MP Beta

      If your previous installation of Medal of Honor MP beta is getting in the way to install this game, just go to control panel and uninstall it. If you installed the beta through steam, and can’t see the beta in library.
      Now, go to the installation directory and start the exe, it will give you an error as the beta is over, but now that you have done that, game shows up in the library. Right click and select to delete local content, to remove the beta from your system.
    15. Multiplayer Stats not Saving

      If you played multiplayer and stats didn’t save, log out, and log in back and the stats would show up. It’s not that stats are not being uploaded to ea servers but its the local client bug that is not showing the stats
    16. MOH SP Exe Doesn’t Start

      Go to your game directory and run moh.exe as admin. If you bought the game off steam, go to game directory:

      Right click on moh.exe and choose run as administrator.
    17. Medal of Honor 2010 Port Forwarding

    18. Medal of Honor SP/MP High Mouse Sensitivity

    Medal of Honor 2010 - Tweak Guide

    You can tweak Medal of Honor 2010 to run better on your system, or for an increase in performance if you are facing any performance issues. For that, you will need to edit the configuration file of Medal of Honor 2010, which you can find in the locations specified for your specific operating system.

    In Medal Of Honor 2010, the configuration file you need to edit is “Settings.ini”, which can be found here.

    Windows 7/Vista:

    Windows XP:

    Now, which tweaks you can do ? refer to the guide below.

    Medal of Honor 2010 Graphics and Performance Tweaks:

    1. Anti-Aliasing (MSAA)

      The higher you set this, the more resources the game will consume. So set it low, if you want to increase the performance of your machine.
      Best Performance: 0 (1x)
      Best Quality: 3 (4x)
    2. Bloom

      Effect that tries to mimic the way human eye sees a bright object right after seeing a dark object. More of an eye candy, so turn it off.
      Best Performance: false (off)
      Best Quality: true (on)
    3. DirectX Mode (DxVersion)

      If you are on Windows 7/Vista, you may opt to run the game in DirectX 9 at the expense of graphics and eye candy you get while running the game on DirectX 10. One major disadvantage of running the game on DirectX 9 is that you may experience flickering textures and AA won’t work.
      Best Performance: 9
      Default: auto
    4. Horizontal Based Ambient Occlusion (HSAO)

      Dense shadows that add depth to objects, but can negatively impact performance.
      Best Performance: false (off)
      Best Quality: true (on)
    5. Shadows

      Best Performance: medium or low
      Best Quality: high
    6. Undergrowth

      Quality of the grass on the ground. Turning it off, gives a massive performance boast.
      Best Performance: medium or low
      Best Quality: high
    7. VSync

      Syncs the games FPS to the refresh rate of your monitor to eliminate “tearing”. People with Average PC’s shouldn’t even think of turning it on, “Always off”. Infact, only turn it on if you can maintain 60+ FPS in the game.
      Available settings: on, off
    8. Anisotropic Filtering (Aniso)

      Quality of textures at a distance. Not noticeable performance boast, but rendering these textures at distance uses memory, so keep it low if you have low RAM.
    9. Detail

      Available settings: low, medium, high
    10. Effects

      Quality of particle effects.
      Available settings: low, medium, high
    11. Overgrowth

      Amount of grass that comes out of the ground.
      Available settings: low, medium, high
    12. Soldiers

      Level of detail on Players.
      Available settings: low, medium, high
    13. StaticObjects

      Quality of various objects (barrels, rocks, signs, etc.)
      Available settings: low, medium, high

      Quality of general terrain (not including grass; see Overgrowth & Undergrowth)
      Available settings: low, medium, high
    14. Textures

      Quality of general textures (walls, fences, poles, etc.)
      Available settings: low, medium, high
    15. Vehicles

      Level of detail on all vehicles.
      Available settings: low, medium, high
    16. Water

      Quality of water in the game, which you may never find, so better turn it off.
      Best Performance: medium or low

    Medal of Honor 2010 - Inside Clean Sweep

    We know you have loads of questions. What’s included? What’s Clean Sweep? What maps will be included? With that in mind, we’ve decided to give you the entire rundown for the content pack, and rest assured, it’s loads of fun.

    What’s it cost?

    Nothing! Every new copy of Medal of Honor comes with a free Online Pass, and once activated, you’ll be able to download the Clean Sweep pack with no cost to you. If you don’t have an Online Pass, you can purchase one for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network or 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live, which will include the Clean Sweep mode and accompanying maps.

    What is Clean Sweep?

    Clean Sweep is an elimination/last man standing styled mode played in two teams. There are no respawns in any of the matches, and there’s a four minute time limit, making for some fast and fun skirmishes. The team with the most players left standing at the end of the match wins.

    What maps are included?

    There are two new maps and two redesigned maps included with this DLC pack, providing you with a healthy mix of new environments and some environments that are familiar. The two new maps are Bagram Hangar and Khyber Caves, and complimenting those are redesigned versions of Diwagal Camp and Kabul City Ruins.

    Bagram Hangar

    The infamous Air Base has been a key military installment since the late ‘70s, and now you’ll be able to head into this environment and take out your opponents under the cover of darkness. While in the day, it’s relatively easy to spot out a target, but that’s easier said than done when there’s no daylight to help you see your enemies.

    Khyber Caves

    There’s an old saying about the Khyber Pass: “Every stone in the Khyber has been soaked in blood.” Once you enter the caves of this locale and find yourself in a firefight with the enemy, you’ll find out exactly what that means.

    Khyber-Caves.jpg

    Diwagal Camp

    While you may already be familiar with this rocky terrain, what you’ll find during your Clean Sweep skirmishes is different than you’re used to. Filled with huts and caves, Diwagal Camp is a place where the enemy can be hiding around any corner.

    Kabul City Ruins

    This urban environment is filled with wrecked cars and dilapidated buildings, creating an area with plenty of areas to engage the enemy. Just keep in mind that even though you’re behind the cover of a building or car, these obstacles are decaying and may hold just as much danger as being outside.

    Medal of Honor 2010 - Single Player Tactics

    Medal of Honor features an exciting campaign set in modern day Afghanistan. During the campaign, you take on the role of several different characters as the story unfolds. The campaign can be challenging as you’re always outnumbered. I had the opportunity to play through the game and experience combat as a Tier 1 operator, and found several tactics that worked well against the enemy. What I learned during the heat of battle should be shared with others. Now you can know insights and tactics that helped me stay alive and should help you thrive. I can confidently say, after reading the info below you’ll be able to survive in battle against insurgents and also complete your assigned objectives.

    Iron Sights

    As you walk around during the game, you carry your weapon at chest level. A targeting reticule appears on the screen to show an approximate area your bullets will hit when you fire. However, firing "from the hip" is not very accurate—especially when moving. Therefore, in order to improve your accuracy, use your iron sights.

    MOH_blog_01.preview.jpg

    With the press of a button, you bring the weapon up to your shoulder so you can look down the sights. Most of your rifles are equipped with a scope or other optical sight to help with targeting. Firing in iron sights mode is much more accurate, so get in the habit of quickly bring up the sights, aiming, and then firing. You will get more kills with fewer rounds.

    Night Operations

    Several of the missions in the campaign take place at night and some of the daylight missions have areas where you must operate in the dark. Your characters are all equipped with NODS night vision devices. These let you see effectively in the dark.

    MOH_blog_02.preview.jpg

    Since most of your enemies are not so equipped, the darkness is your friend. When you fire in the dark, the muzzle flash from your weapon will alert enemies to your location. Therefore if you want to keep them "in the dark", move in and make melee kills with your knife to clear out several enemies without giving away your position.

    Peeking and Leaning

    Cover is an important part of the game. If you try to fight while out in the open, you are just asking for a body bag with your name on it. Whenever enemies are around, get behind some cover. Once there, you can use the peek and lean ability to minimize your exposure as you engage enemies. Holding down the peek and lean button essentially locks your feet in place. Then as you move, you can peek up to look over cover or lean to the sides to see around the cover. You can even peek under an object such as a vehicle. Combine peek and lean with iron sights and you can really put the hurt on the enemy while keeping yourself safer.

    Teamwork

    During most missions, you will be operating as part of a team—with a single team mate or as a part of a four man team. Teams offer suppressing fire, communication and are important for those times you might be looking in the wrong direction. Take off ahead of them and you’re facing a lot of hostiles on your own. If they’re staying back, there may be a threat ahead and want to engage it from a distance before moving forward.

    MOH_blog_03.preview.jpg

    One advantage of staying with your team is their additional firepower. Your teammates will take out tangos along with you—they are not just there for looks. In addition, they can help by calling out threats for you. Listen to what they say—especially if they are telling you to target a hostile with an RPG or other heavy weapon. Another advantage to staying with your team is that they can provide extra ammo for your weapons when you are low. Just walk up to a teammate and follow the on screen prompts to re-supply.

    Tier 1 Mode

    After you’ve completed a mission in the campaign, you can then play that same mission in Tier 1 mode. This is a more realistic and challenging mode. It is also timed so that you can compare your time with your friends and other people in the Medal of Honor community. Each mission has a par time. If you can beat this time, you earn a medal for that mission. In Tier 1 mode, it’s easier to die and there are no checkpoints. If you die, you must start the mission over from the beginning. Therefore, you have to use caution and really stay behind cover or your mission will not last very long. While this may seem at odds with trying to get through the mission as quickly as possible, a Tier 1 operator must find the perfect balance between caution and speed.

    MOH_blog_04_.preview.jpg

    During Tier 1 mode missions, you are actually rewarded for some actions that can make it worth your while to slow down a bit. When you perform a skill kill, the timer freezes for a few seconds. The more skill kills you get in a row or within a short amount of time, the longer you can freeze the timer. So get in behind some cover, lean around the side and make headshots to freeze the time. When moving through a dark building, use your knife to freeze time as you run around and silently kill the enemies. While a few seconds here and there may not seem like much, they really add up over the course of a mission and can mean the difference for beating the par time.

    In Tier 1 mode, your teammates do NOT carry extra ammo for. Therefore, you either have to conserve your ammo or find other weapons. When an enemy is killed, he will leave his weapon behind. You can then pick it up and switch it out for one of the two weapons you can carry. With a captured weapon, you pick up additional ammo by walking over a dropped weapon of the same type. Since most enemies carry the same weapon, you can usually find a lot of ammo in this manner.

    Medal of Honor 2010 - How To Not Die Every Five Seconds

    I love this game, I do well in it. Maybe the game style suits me, but I will share some of my findings with you.

    Cover is your friend
    You should be using cover at all times. There should never be a time where you're standing out in the open, you're just asking to get sniped. Remember, there are not a lot of choke points on these maps, so snipers WILL have their eyes trained on your location, remember this at all times.

    Try to think of the combat as a front-line, especially when it comes to Raid maps. If you need to advance, don't do it blindly. Make sure you've checked with your sights up, the areas that are looking in your general direction, ensure there are no snipers just waiting for some fresh meat. If there are, or you're unsure, pop a smoke grenade toward the enemy front line. They won't be able to see you advance, and prepare yourself for when the smoke clears. Smoke grenades are the key to successful advancement.

    Watch out for your teammates

    You should be aware of your teammates positions, try to cover an angle they aren't. Be a team player, and take someones back, help them out. If you find you're getting gunned down too often, follow a teammate. Help him, cover him and eventually he'll get plugged and you will probably see from where, plug that guy then follow someone else.

    Don't be a hero

    What I mean by that is, don't think you're invincible, you're not. You're sniper food. Snipers will off you in this game faster than you can say WTF. Use your cover, check your corners and even take pot shots at positions you think contain snipers, sometimes you'll get one.

    YES, contrary to popular belief, this games DOES have bullet spread
    If you're using an automatic rifle from a distance, taking pot shots will be more accurate. If you're up against a sniper over a distance you're likely to lose, unless you get the first few shots off before he notices you.

    On Sector Control maps

    I used to die a lot on Sector Control maps, until I figured out hey; i don't actually have to move around so much. Pick a sector, and claim it for your own. You will be a major contributor to your team, and you will also rack up the kills in a hurry.

    Be aware of what is around you

    This is probably the biggest one, know where your teammates are, and know the direction of the enemy spawn. Often times, you will end up wandering into dangerous territory without knowing where to focus your attention; you need to try to keep your backside safe, and your front end hot. Train those crosshairs on the enemy.

    Don't reload right away!!!

    We expect people to reload after a firefight, but if you still have rounds left in that clip it might mean the difference between you getting cut up while reloading, and getting a streak kill.

    Crouch!!!!!!!!

    Crouch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Aim high

    Headshots are lethal from any weapon, know this and use it.

    Use smoke for cover and flank

    Kind of obvious but it's very under-utilized right now. Smoke is not just for show. Use it when you try to cross long run-ways or trying to flank a sniper. You pick up another smoke nade when you move over another dead body or stand next to the ammo crate. YES, these bullet marks on the maps are not just for show, they reload your ammo and explosives.

    Know your objective

    If you are rushing, you NEED TO RUSH. Standing back inside the garage while the objective is CLEARLY outside isn't going to win the game for you. Same goes for the defending team. Just because you are defending do not mean you shouldn't be rushing. Push the attackers back so they cannot set the charge or control the sectors. Be aggressive.

    Defensive support is better than offensive

    People tend to use mortar just "hoping" to get a few "random" kills here and there while it's fun and sometimes you do get lucky. If a mortar strike hits nothing, you have just wasted your streak. Use UAV to support the whole team is useful for any maps esp. these maps that have large amount of camping spots. You always certainly will get more points using defensive support.

    Look before you shoot

    Unless you have suppressor, be careful when you fire because you are lit up on the mini-map, and smart players will be coming to your position. There is nothing more frustrating to have suppressor on and then your teammate shoot you loudly, giving away your position because he/she is so trigger happy.

    That's it for now, i'll add more shortly. If you have any suggestions on how to survive in MOH MP, please post away!

    Solving Problems with The Administrator Rights In Vista And In Windows 7

    There are at this point two solutions too solve the problems with administrator rights in Vista and in Windows 7, you can find them below. Thanks to webtlk.com and howtogeek.com.

    First solution: Windows 7 has got a super administrator account which, by default, is disabled. Such account is automatically created when Windows 7 boots up for the first time but, for security reasons, is hidden from view. Let’s see how to turn it on thanks to a simple query in the Command Prompt.

    1. Click Start.
    2. In the Search field, type CMD.
    3. On the list of available programs, right click the Command Prompt icon and click Run as Administrator.
    4. In the black window, type: net user administrator /active:yes
    5. Press Enter.
    6. The system should return you with the following message: The command completed successfully.
    7. Now, exit the Command Prompt and click the Start icon.
    8. Log off from the current account and in the Account window you should now see the Administrator account.
    9. Done!
    10. If you want to turn off the Admin account, type: net users administrator /active:no

    Second solution:

    Windows Vista or Windows 7, will have problems running some older versions of applications, just because so much has changed under the hood from Windows XP days. Thankfully there is a compatibility mode that can be easily set per application.

    To configure the compatibility mode for an application, just locate the installation directory and right click on the .exe, selecting Properties from the menu.

    Select the Compatibility tab:

    vista-compatibility-mode.png

    You can choose to run the program in Windows XP compatibility mode, or even all the way back to Windows 95 compatibility.

    Probably the most useful setting to start off with would be to disable the visual themes and desktop composition, if you can’t get things working. If you are trying to run a video game, you will often need to choose “Run this program as an administrator”. You’ll have to play around with it, but most likely you can get your application working this way.

    3.) Now you are in the Party Lobby, you must first change party access to Platoon Only. Then you can send a mass invite to all members of your platoon by choosing to Invite Platoon Members. You need a minimum of 4 platoon members to start a Platoon Match.

    platoon_partyinvite-618x386.jpg

    4.) Once you have at least 4 members in the party, the option to Start Platoon Matchmaking* will appear. This will start matchmaking and eventually join you into a Platoon server. Platoon matchmaking only runs the Homerun game mode.*PC server owners, please ensure that your server has been configured for the Platoon Playlist before starting Platoon Matchmaking.
