To all those who can run the rip version BUT WITH NO SOUND but can′t run the ISO version at all, this worked for me on 64bit win7 professional:
Install ISO version
Download RIP version
Find the file directory for your ISO install (should be C:program filesmicrosoft
gamesmech commander 2 by default or something similar)
Find the DATA folder and open it
take the sound folder and use that one to overwrite the sound folder in the DATA folder of the RIP version (i.e. delete the sound folder of the RIP version and cut/copy and paste the sound folder from the ISO version in its place the correct sound folder should be close to 200mb)
Open RIP version EXE
Me again!! If videos arent loading, i suggest playing them separately on a fileplayer ? Or replacing the rip version files with the iso.
For any other fixes.
This game has many flaws compared to its predecessor and the biggest one is the enemy AI behavior of targeting only the first of your units it sees, no matter what, until it dies. Pretty disappointing that no one has managed to address that despite the fact that the game has been open source for over a decade.
I have tried to run this program from no matter how many downloads I have tried. And it never seems to work.
I have tried using Magic Iso maker, and running it from a mounted Virtual Drive. Tried running from a burned CD & DVD. Tried coping files into the the harddrive and running there.
never seems to work. Even changed the Compatible modes ...
Any suggestions on how to get it running from Windows 7, the Editor & the library works. but the game itself...

@Everyone whining about how to play.
for the no mouse problem:
Disable Hardware Mouse Update under Graphics.
If your game is getting stuck at the opening screen, hit Esc, Space, whatever to get out of that screen ASAP. If you skip past it immediately you′re golden. Sounds crazy I know, but when I don′t skip the intro the game locks up or crashes. But I never have that problem after skipping.

Same here in terms of audio not playing. But, also, once I finish the first Campaign, my graphics get messed up with the second campaign. Sensors are all jacked up.
@JARTHUR4707 I had this problem, too, with the RIP version. I downloaded the ISO version (MDS/MDF, actually) and installed it, the sounds all work fine. There′s a 146 MB difference in the folder size of "sounds" between the two versions, which m
