Scan for viruses and do a scan disk on your hard drive.

i have tried both of those methods and nothing has changed when i try to access winter assault
Have you been able to run the game even once?

only dawn of war, not winter assault.
just the dawn of war component works perfectly
Ok, please try launching WA one more time, and after you get the error message post the warnings.log file here.

I have the same problem.
When I install WA it appears to be corrupt. This problem is new because until June I could play with both games Dow and WA. The problem started with the 1.50 patch.
Next 10 Installations and more, i coudn't play. What can we do?
Xecutioner: have you tried reinstalling the game?
Sacco: did you have any mods or custom content installed?

yes i did and the same thing happens, what could it be that could be making the game go like this?
When you reinstalled, did you manually delete the game folder after uninstalling and before installing again?

yes i did, i even went into the registry and deleted the files/keys for dawn of war and winter assault, so i could install fresh but it didnt work and i got the same result as before, winter assualt not working

I also have this problem. I had to reformat the harddrive a few weeks back.
I never had trouble when I bought WA a few months ago. But now when I go to run it, it says the installation is corrupt and says to reinstall DoW and WA. I just patched DoW to 1.51, but the problem was there before that. Any ideas?

Xec ... from your warnings.log it looks like critical game folders/files don't exist(?). Did you install as Win Administrator account? I always install stuff as Win Admin.
Use Win File Explorer to see if there are missing game folders/files in the install folder (note the folders/files in the warnings.log - "cannot open ..." ). If these are really missing, it's a write problem at install - can't think of why, except not using Win Admin. Or disable your virus checker/blocker for install - the virus prog might be blocking folder/file creation?
