How to get game to launch in Win7 64bit
In steam, right-click Port Royale 2 in your Library.
Go to Properties, then click the "Local Files" tab. Then click the button "Browse Local Files."
When Windows Explorer comes up, scroll down until you see PR2.exe.
Right-click and go to properties. Then click the "Compatibility" tab.
Select the checkbox "Run this program in compatibility mode for.." and then select "Windows 98/Me" from the dropdown.
Hit the Apply button.
Restart Steam.
You should now be able to launch the game.

Edit: You may have to also do this for the other two executables in your install directory (except the Uninstall exe).

Nope. Definitely doesn't work. ATI Graphics drivers are what effects this. Anything above 12.8 seems to crash it.

Didn't work for me - running a gtx 560 ti, win7 home premium 64 bit. Haven't bothered attempting a driver rollback and not going to.

I had to enable compatibility mode for all 3 executables in the game directory (except the uninstall executable) but then it worked for me.
But I am not sure why it is necessary in the first place to use compatibility mode with the steam version since there was a (german only?) version published a few years ago which worked without having to enable compatibility mode on vista/win7.
