Hi all,

I'm still holding out, flying the COD2 flag.

I setup a COD2 Linux server with ease, there is a lot of documentation around this still 'live'.

Most helpful I used this document:
http://callofduty2.infinity-shell.net/howtos/Call_of_Duty_2_Linux_Guide_v1.01.pdf

Recently I acquired a hosted virtual server running win 2008. I thought.... I totally have to get a cod server on that. But I've found very little info on this, and I've never done a winserver.

I literally feel lost, and found many broken links, or linux guides.

I uploaded the contents of my DVD - I tried to run cod2_mp.exe but got a directx error, and assume I need to run some kind of server specific file. I'm probably asking a stupid question here, I'm just failing to find what I need. I guess I'm stuck in linux mode and missing something simple?

Heh, So I realised I just needed to create a shortcut to the cod2mp.exe and add my normal startup commands and then instead of trying to run the game it runs the server with a console window. Bingo.

Sorry for noobing out there.
