Do you just have Covert Operations ?

or do you have the primary game Rogue Spear with the Urban Operations/Covert Operations packs installed as mods ?

If you just have CO it would be well worth getting the full set if you can find it still available

Rogue Spear with Urban Operations, Covert Operations and Black Thorn installed as mods does work under Vista (but can be a bit temperamental, for some people it works first time others have to do a lot of tweaking)

have you tried making sure it is set to "run as Administrator" first and then try running it under each of the different "compatibility modes; XP / 2000 / 98 / 95 Etc

Does your new PC have all it's drivers up to date (including DirectX /Graphics card/ sound card Etc..)

Do you get any error messages or are any listed in the windows event logs ?

also try looking in the game folder for the error log file called "Rommel.log"
