Mission & Campaign Editor fix/workaround for 64-bit versions of Windows

**Game Title(s) affected:** Theatre of War 1 **Problem:** Launching either of the Editors from Theatre of War 1 in a 64-bit version of Windows results in a .NET error. **Solution/Workaround:** This solution/workaround is NOT guaranteed to work. This was originally a workaround posted by another customer for getting the editors to work under Windows Vista 64-bit and it has worked for a number of other customers. The TOW Mission Editor is a .NET executable, meaning it contains a header region that can be edited by some freely available tools from Microsoft. Download the 64-bit .NET 2.0 SDK from the following link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=1aef6fce-6e06-4b66-afe4-9aad3c835d3d&displaylang=en or http://download.cnet.com/NET-Framework-2-0-Software-Development-Kit-SDK-x64/3000-2206_4-10728200.html (this is a 337MB download, English version) Install the SDK. Once the SDK install has finished go to your Windows/Start menu > All Programs > open the "Microsoft .NET Framework SDK v2.0 (64bit)" folder. In here right-click on the "SDK Command Prompt" and select "Run as administrator" from the popup menu. This will open a special command prompt window. In this command prompt window type the following (without quotes) and then hit [Enter] when done: *"cd \Program Files (x86)\Battlefront\Theatre of War\MissionEditor"* (NOTE: You may need to change this to another directory if that's not where it is installed or you have a non-Battlefront version of the game) Now type (without quotes): "*Corflags Editor.exe /32BIT+*" and hit [Enter] . Now type (without quotes): "*Corflags MissionGen.exe /32BIT+*" and hit [Enter]. The editors should now run.
