I intended today to play the old Commandos Behind the Enemy Lines once again to remind my childhood days once again and downloaded it from a torrent.

But oops! When I tried to run it on my Windows 7, it just showed up a black screen with Commandos Music sound. Nothing else!

So, I Googled for the solution and, Oh Yes! I found one and it worked for me.
So I am sharing the solution here so that it may help anyone of you facing the same problem.
The Solution:
The problem with the game is that its application environment is compatible to run with older versions of Windows. i.e. Windows XP / Windows 98 / Windows Me.
So, the solution is to run the game with compatibility mode to make it able to run in Windows 7.
Follow the steps given below.
  • Go to the installed location of Commandos Behind the Enemy Lines
  • Right click on the “Commandos.exe”
  • Click on “Properties” Click on the “Compatibility” tab.
  • Check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” box
  • Select “Windows 98 / Windows Me” from the list Click on “OK”

Now play the game by double clicking on Commandos.exe. Now, it should work for you.

I hope you will enjoy the game.
