now this game works on my x64 install
intel chipset management software no longer seems to be the cause
this did not work previosuly :(
but now I am happy
in addition to previous measures
for x64 must install Kane's Wrath in a simple directory such as c:\KW
multilanguage installations make file paths very confusing, especially when there is program files (x86) - stupid software can not address it properly, thus spaces and long names confuse installers and patchers/
now I can play online in my x64 WIN7 before 2012 edition.
