Does Call Of Duty 4 work on Vista?
my mate "big ron" lol has tried to run the game on his comp, altho when it boots up it says the Code Error message and the horrible RED X, which means something is not quite right:x

anyone have any idea why this game isnt running? is there a settings on Vista that you have to change to make this run smoothly?


  1. Misc
  2. Windows

yes it does work on Vista. He must not have a right driver or system requirement or something along thouse lines. go the COD fourm and they should tell him there what the problem is.

Try re-installing the game. BTW every time you want to play COD 4 on the pc do u have to insert the disc?


Install the game & DirectX
Re-install DirectX from the folder on the disc
Search for the file mssmp3.asi in the game folder on the pc and rename it to mssmp3.asi.old
Now fire up the game

You need the original disc inserted each time you want to play, unless you use something like Daemon tools to make an image, mount, install from the image and then play without the disc.

So even if you want to play online only you must insert the disc?

Disc not needed for multiplayer mode.

On topic, I am running cod4 on vista with no problems whatsoever.
