Issues fixed

Pagefile

Dawn of War II says it will not run unless you have a pagefile of at least 1.5 GB in size. This can be worked around.

  2. Right-click the game name
  3. Select Properties
  4. Select Set Launch Options...
  5. Input -disablepagefilecheck
  6. Press OK
  7. Launch the game

Notes

This will remove the check for a pagefile of at least 1.5 GB. If your computer runs out of available memory while playing, you will experience lag, stuttering, freezing and/or crashing.
