Here is a Solution that has worked for me (the only reason I knew it was due to recent problems with Mercenaries 2): 1.) Find the .exe file for the world at war beta 2.) Right click and go to properties 3.) Click on the tab titled "Compatibility" 4.) check the box "Run this in compatibility mode for:" 5.) Select Windows 98/ME 6.) Click OK and try to start the program

Going backwards in tech shouldnt be an answer for a newly released Beta.

Make sure DX is updated to Aug 08 and drivers are up to date then try this:



I tried almost all of the solutions posted but came across another one I haven't seen here and it worked for me.



In "Sound and Audio device Properties" click Advanced under Speaker Settings

then go to the Performance tab and change Hardware Acceleration to full

and Sample Rate Conversion Quality to good.



This got me around the unhandled exception error. I got the black screen but if you wait 4-5 minutes, the game will start.

Still didnt work, You got to love a beta release 15 days before the release date!!!! Not a good start!!! So many issues no real good fixes. I have owned every Cod game from Cod, OU, Cod2, Cod3 for the xbox360, and Cod4, and I must say I never had the issues I have with this demo release. I know its just a beta, but come on to release the beta so late???
