I am using Windows 7, but the game is installed in the C root directory, not in Program Files. The Gold Patch installed fine, but I'm not sure if this new patch did. In the C:World War I folder is ANOTHER World War I folder. Is that correct?

This patch wanted to install into the c:\program files\World War One folder so I had to manually select the actual install folder.

Just wanted to report on how the game is playing under the new patch. I still experience laggy mouse movement and slow map scrolling even with patch 1.08F.
Here is what I have done:
- Set screen resolution to 1024 and "locked" in configurator
- mouse sensitivity set 2/3 to the right
- map scrolling set all the way to the left
- UAC turned off
- Run game as administrator under Windows Vista 64
- Updated my sound drivers
- load maps at start
- load music and sound at start
- set unit movement slider 2/3 to the right
- unloaded anti virus software from tray (i.e. turned off antivirus)
I still experience slow and choppy mouse movement during main map display but not during battles. Map scrolling is also slow and choppy. I'd rather not turn off sound and music but have I missed any other setting to help speed up mouse and map moving/scrolling?

I set compatibility mode to Windows XP and disabled desktop composition. I unlocked the lock screen option in the WW1 configurator. When I ran the game as administrator I still had mouse lag and slow map scrolling.
What I did next was update my video card driver and set play sounds in streaming mode in the WW1 configurator. What this did was eliminate map scrolling slowdowns and reduce significantly the mouse lag to a point where I think it is acceptable. There is still some lag with the mouse, however it is not as bad as was before.
One last key point to mention. I started a brand new 2 player grand campaign. The old save file I had that was pre 1.08F still gave me problems.

My rig has 4GB of RAM and my ATI Radeon HD 5670 with 1GB of RAM should be more than adequate to run WW1 with no mouse lag. I can play Napoleon Total War with all settings set to the max and have absolutely no map our mouse scrolling/lag issues.
Perhaps I need to setup my video card's settings different from what they are now?
There obviously is still some issue that I need to resolve in order to get rid of that last bit of mouse lag.
