No luck. Didn't know how to change permissions to rename the bad file.

I believe @augetout used the BAT file and had no issue and it fixed his issue.

Tried using the BAT file. Says "the current logged on user doesn't have ownership privileges. Access denied."

.Maybe I'm suppose to run it with as administrator, but I don't know how.

Success. Took an hour and a half but got it. Changing file permissions was the hardest part, but then saw "option2" in Pittpete's windows 7 link.  After that I renamed both of the gameux.dll files to simply, gameux. Game starts first try and I'm back to around 40 - 50 fps. Thankyou for the help.

Method 2 worked for me as well and I renamed the .dll to .old. run32dll was making my cpu load 100%. When I disbaled that process it dropped my cpu load dramatically and my cpu temps dropped about 30C.

Now if I can just get past being on call... God I hate being on call and we don't even get paid anything extra for it.

I start with desktop, discord, notepad and task master running with CPU loaded to  3-5%.  I have found that after the first (failed) start my CPU is at 97% and taskmaster says WW2 OL is NOT running.    I start the second time and CPU is solid at 100% and game speed is 17-25 FPS with any action around.   It swings between 30  and 90 FPS in a vacant town.   I tried reloading game.  No help.   Game is no longer playable.   FYI my normal game FPS with this computer has been 75-90 FPS even in serious battle.     Suggestions?

Sounds like the same issue.. So the suggestion from Pittpete should work to fix your issue.. http://ubeogesh-things.blogspot.com/2012/08/resolve-it-finally-game-explorer-aka.html

You'll need to take ownership, but the 64bit gameux.dll is the problem. It's located in Syswow folder.

Don't need to rename the 32bit gameux.dll in system32 folder. Found this out after the wife couldn't play her solitaire and other included windows games. Restored the 32bit and her games work and still doesn't effect WW2OL.
