Corrupted textures?

If you have problems with completely corrupted textures the problem might be that your systems lacks a library that is used for texture compression in Dawn of War.

Dawn of War's settings are quite careful chosen which means that you could improve the graphics a lot. Here is a guide on tweaking DoW's graphics which sums it up.
