Battlefield failure to open

Last evening when I shut my computer off, it waited for 16 automatic updates to install before shutting down. This morning when I get up I try to play and Battlefield does not even open. Windows 8. Battlefield CDs install, all 8 discs inclusive. Has anyone experienced this and have a clue as to the correction? Got those shaking hands from the DTs.............
THANKS in advance.

Re: Battlefield failure to open

Assuming you right clicked all the icons and said "run as administrator" and compatibility windows xp service pack 3.
did you install all of the patches in the correct order? if you miss one, it messes up the game.

i would just do a system restore to couple days ago..that should do it..?

Re: Battlefield failure to open

I usually just double click the BF1942 desktop icon and voila. The upgrades were automatic before puter shut down. I did right click and try to run as administrator. Same end. Nothing happens. Tried system restore and it keeps saying "system restore failed. Try again or use a different restore point:. Did BOTH to no avail. Didnt install anything between running game last evening before shutting down for the night. It is set to run compatibility windows XP service pack 3 too!
  More thanks for the trying help than I can type!

Anything to do with this ?

I have spoken to a couple of players who's custom profile was screwed over by this update and cause similar problems for some of them running the GamerSpy patch here fixed it:

Could be worth a try or its a back up of custom settings and a reinstall smile

Re: Battlefield failure to open

So the answer for MY issue was to re-install gamespy patch, select run and life is GOOD again. Thanks to all who helped!!!!!!

Gamespy patch on team-simple.org front page for downloads, not the forum in case anyone else has my issue. Took less than 10 seconds to fix!
:-)
YAY!
