I installed Civilization IV Beyond the Sword but I can't find the launch icon

This issue is common when installing your game on Windows Vista or Windows 7. In many cases, a desktop icon may not be created when the game is installed on these operating systems.

If a desktop icon is not created after installing, Beyond the Sword, you can locate it here:

  • Select Start > Computer and double-click your C: Drive. 
  • Open Program Files. 
  • Open Firaxis Games > Sid Meier's Civilization 4 then the Beyond the Sword folder. 

You can launch the game from the Civ4BeyondSword application.

To create a desktop icon, right click the Civ4BeyondSword application file and select, "Create Shortcut".

You can now drag the shortcut to your desktop and use to launch the game.
