    have you tried to run it as admin, just saying that might be the problem.

    Yes i tried to run as admin,  but it  doesn't change anything , It fully installed and did the updates and everything  .

    i havent tried downloading it from the net , but i will give that a go .. !!   everytime i try to launch it , well it goes through an update 

    that goes for about 3 secs , and it stops < nothing , i even tried right clickuing , programs and file location and tried to lauch it from the application , it does the same thing 3 sec update and then nothing , i tried using  both -cds, ( 1n and 2 ) and it didnt work   i wonder if the cds are damaged ??

    It may be updateing and may just not be showing the updateing. Let it run for awhile if not call sony tech support.

    yes i thought that too, but initialy when i installed it . well it went through the motion and took a long time to update .

    so  yes  i have a short cut for the game on my desk top , so every time i try to lauch it  now it takes only 3 secs and then nothing ..   I thought like you ? that it might be loading  behind the scene ??  well i waited for a long time and nothing..

    thanks though ...  when it did the update initially i could see  the progress screen  for  the update there is no misstake about that , but i will try again even now  cheers ...

    go here

    http://www.vanguardthegame.com/

    click play for free follow the promts, if this does not work check task manager and make sure there are not pieces of the other install stil floating around .  Vangaurd is known for its memory leaks and leaving itself running even when it is not suposed to.

             Vanguard is still the only game today that I cannot run on my PC......The game has always been a technical piece of crap but it works for most people luckily.....

    Im having the same issue. I still have my disks from 07, decided to give the game another go. Everything went smooth until I launched it from desktop. I ran it as admin and nothing. The station box pops, loads graphics, etc then it just disappears and nothing happens.

    Games. Music. Metal. ROLL TIDE!!!

    Yeah for this one you have to have the correct launcher and some others will not work lol.

    You could try running it and downloading it from steam.

    Vanguard is an amazing game! Do not let people dissuade you! If you want a challenging and oldschool feeling game with huge maps and cram packed challenging mobs. Get er done. If you bought vanguard just go into your account and when you see the games you own on it there should be a download link there. Don't use your discs from 07.

    Hope you guys get it all working! I don't even play the game and I only did for a month. I can tell you one thing though. Make friends! Game can be super challenging if you challenge yourself in it!
