Company of Heroes Gold edition wont work for me on Windows 8

It worked at first and I played some campaign missions, but the next day it said it want compatible with the installed OS and I needed win 98, win 2000 or better to run it. I tried different OS's in compatibility mode but that didnt work either.


Hi Aaron,


I understand that Company of Heroes Gold is not working on Windows 8. This is because the game is not compatible with Windows 8, but it is compatible with Windows 7. Hence, I would recommend you to first uninstall and then install the game in Windows 7 compatibility mode.


You may check the compatibility of Company of Heroes Gold with Windows 7 in the below mentioned link:



Method 1: Try installing the game in compatibility mode in a clean boot state.

b) Click the "Compatibility" tab.


c) Check the box next to "Run This Program in Compatibility Mode For."


d) Choose "Windows 7” from the drop-down menu.


e) Click "OK."


f) Double-click the program's installation icon to install the program.
