The quick save and load shortcuts keys are: Save (CTRL-S) & Load (CTRL-L).
As to why you cant save normally: If you copied files rather than installing via the setup program (some version of the setup don't run on NT or 2000 machines) then the reg keys wont have been setup, so if you save your game it won't save anything, but this should not grey out the buttons.
Check reg key : LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PYRO\COMMANDOS\1.0
See if anything is set-up here. If so check the installation directory (DirIns) is correct.
If not create following keys
"DirIns"="?INSTALL DIRECTORY?" "Type"=dword:00000001
"DirIns"="?INSTALL DRIECTORY?Coman_Mp" "Type"=dword:00000003
?CDROMDRIVE? ie. D
?INSTALLDIRECTORY? ie. C:\program files\pyro\Commandos\
I am assuming you know what reg key is, if not it is probably better not to mess with them. Just try re-installing first.
man... although i havent tried it yet , it looks brilliant..
im back dude.....
and i was wondering...
how in the world do u know about this?

Had same problem myself. Managed to get reg keys from a working install on my friends PC. Helps that I program for a living as well.
Glad you have got your problem sorted.
