what version is it if its a build 7600 then it should work fine(cause beta's had problems with playin games and other stuff, 7600 is the final build released by windows)

if it doesn't try reinstalling it but make a back up of maps etc.

I'm not sure what version it is, it was on the pc when I bought it yesterday.

It's a Sony Vaio if that helps.

For some reason it's put Wolfenstein in a folder called Program Files (x86)

I've never had that happen before.

I've reinstalled it now and put it in Program files but it still wont load.

It says I'm missing essential pak files.

Not sure what they could be as it looks ok.

Puzzling ! scratch

u can also try running it in compability mode

right click the .exe(ET.exe) icon in wolfenstein folder , then properties, compatibility pab, run this program in comatibility mode, tick it set it to xp service2 or win2000,u can also tick desktop composition to disable aero while playin to improve performance.

You are using a 64bit operating system which is basically faster, supports more memory, processors etc etc. So all the old programs like ET that are meant for 32bit operating systems go to the other program files folder.

but 64 doesnt support all 32bit apps/games etc. and vice versa
