Hi Folks,
I recently loaded "windows 8 release preview" on my computer and now find that my BF2 & AIX Extended won't play under this OS.

With both games it starts to load and the screen goes blank(normal procedure) and then it just restarts the computer...
Anybody got any ideas? if not then I will have to wipe my drive and go back to Win 7.

Cheers

as above suggests win 8 isnt compatible with such old games...
in fact its not that compatible with newer games either... its only an rc candidate that isnt a fully fleshed out o.s. it was distributed for testing purposes only so send your feedback to m.s and they can then use it to help improve win 8... after all thats why it was released... they want user feedback.

Thanks HEXiT,
Being a novice at this sort of thing I have no idea how I would go about sending feedback to MS.
