I just purchased Halo PC for the first time (I've always played it console, so I figured I wanted to try the PC version)And the game won't start!

I have a windows 7 computer, the specs are above and beyond the minimum, but the application won't even open!

I'd be very grateful for some help on this, I'd hate to find out that I just wasted $40...

Sometimes, high resolutions will cause the game to crash on startup. Try running the game in windowed mode and manually start it up like that.

Other than that, do you get any error messsges?

The game doesn't get far enough that I can mess with the settings, I double click the application, and then I get nothing, no errors or anything...

Should I be running it in compatibility mode, or messing with properties?
And if so What compatibility mode should it be running in, XP? Vista?

Make a shortcut and add -window to the end of the target line, that should let you run it windowed.

Its odd not getting an error though.

It's just not letting me run it at all, the program won't open.

Try this:

1) Start Halo from the shortcut.
2) When it fails to open, open Task Manager and end halo.exe.
3) Attempt to start Halo again.

May or may not work but I've encountered some strangeness with Halo PC (but not CE) failing to launch on first try every now and then.

I've tried to, but I can't find it in the applications tab of Task Manager, its like the application just isn't opening at all.

I'm going to try 'the Ol' unplug it and plug it back in' fix, and see if that does anything.

Yeah it didn't work

was under the assumption that OP already knew about it. Meh owell

Edit: Wait what the hell? it should have still run fine as the base 1.0 patch atleast enough to update. That doesn't make sense why that'd work

Halo PC doesn't work on x64 machines pre the v1.09 patch, this is old news.


Works fine for me.

Source: I have every version of HPC/HCE and they all run fine.

What are the odds on his next avatar name? I'm feeling lucky.

You did not see his other posts, the ones that were deleted and got him banned. Also this occurred 2 years ago and has no relevance to anything current.
