Battlefield 1942 doesn't start on Win 7 64bit


I want to reinstall BF42 to play some good ol FH1. However bf42 wont even launch.

First off my system specs:

CPU: Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.66GHz
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 896MB
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (Build 7600) 64-bit

First time I installed it from the disc, patched it to 1.6 then to 1.61b. Tried to launch it and nothing happened. Launching it with task manager opened I realized the bf1942.exe process starts but quickly stops as soon as I try to launch the game.

I reinstalled and tried launching it without patching it and same exact thing happened.

I tried it in compatibility mode. Everything from windows 98se/ME to XP to Vista. turned off desktop themes and run as admin, still no go.

I tried searching Mr.Google and nothing i found works.

I remember having this problem back in the day, it's not Win 7 related (had this during a few battles at waw).

You'll need to rename your videosettings.con (or some such,m it's been a long time) in your profile, and then it should start. You'
ll need to redo your gfx settings but bf1942 isn't as anal about them as BF2 :)

I tried editing the video.con filename and the line

game.setGameDisplayMode  to change the resolution and it still doesn't work.

Running it in 640x480 in the compatibility tab launches it and shows a black screen but it quickly crashes.
