Act of war runtime error 217 FIX.

Updated on October 16, 2012


I want to play a "Act Of War" game but i get "217 runtime error".


It's old game and this is a problem with compatibility.

First fix for this bug:

  1. Go to start -> Run -> type "msconfig" and press enter
  2. Select boot tab
  3. Click on "Advanced options"
  4. Set "Number of processors" to 1
  5. Set "Maximum Memory" to value: 2048
  6. Reboot your PC
  7. Start the game

Second fix for this bug:

  1. Set Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode for game exe.
  2. Try to start a game
