I installed AAPG to a new computer and fresh Win 7. The window above, "Welcome to Training Center - Griffin. ..." is black. When I click on the other links, News, Play, Soldier, then the window works fine. I have upgraded to IE 11. Is there anything else to install or upgrade? Flash?

Thanks.

Isn't it a YouTube video there? Sounds like how it normally looks for me if I'm thinking of the right screen.

I don't have the video on win7, but it never really bothered me. I just have any empty space, the launcher works fine so I never really cared.

I have reinstalled Win 7 three times after I got AA:PG.
In the second install i could see the Welcome video in the Launcher.
In the first and present install I can't see the Welcome video even if I disable antivirus and firewall.
Everything else works fine.
And I have mediaplayer.

On my old build, something was there (can't remember exactly might have been a youtube video on pause), so I figured I needed some update for my new build. Doesn't matter much because the game, the launcher, etc. all work fine.

Weird...

I dont remember what format the loading video was at, there might be a codec missing.

I think you're correct. Since I installed Win 7 fresh, I did not install all those other codecs... yet.
