If you are playing the PC version of Wings Over France and finding it pretty much impossible to win (as I did), you may want to try my mod of the data files, posted at http://cryhavocgames.net/other_stuff.htm This mod will increase the flying and shooting skill of each of your pilots by 1 AND/OR decrease the likelihood of an encounter by 1 in each hex. The result is that your lads will actually live long enough to record a few kills.

I'm sorry - I cannot help you. I went directly from WinXP to Windows 7, with no stop on Vista. I can say that many people who have had small problems with older PC games on Vista find that they run fine in Windows 7 Compatibility Mode.

Edit: Unfortunately, Wings Over France will not run under any circumstances under Vista or Win7, according to the developer's web site.

I have run Wings Over France successfully in Windows 7 64-bit by using the VMWare Player emulator and installing WinXP into the emulator.
