Has anyone run this on Windows 7?
I'm not great with Computers (just not my area of expertese) I can do all the basic Maintainence & Upkeep but tend to get a llittle befuddled beyond that due to some concentration problems I have.
Has anyone tried to run the game on Windows 7 and been successful? I need to be able to do it without too much tweaking.
Thanks!

You should explain what your problem is so people have a better idea of how to help you.

the game should run on Windows 7 without any problem - especially when playing it via steam.

I have run it on Windows 7 pro without any issue at all.

Thanks for the feedback!
So hard to tell with Games that came out around this time.
Anyone else remember: "If it runs on Vista, it will run on 7 no problems" lol

I have never run into any game that i've bought on steam that I cannot get to run on windows 7. Not sure what that comment is meant to mean.

It has nothing to do with Steam...the game Specs only show up until Vista and there are a few titles that just don't transition onto 7 that well...or at all even in Compatability mode.
I wish I could think of an example, but I can't think of a specific title off the top of my head.

Before Windows7 was released, Microsoft promised that if it ran on Vista it would absolutely run on Windows 7 without any problems...there are websites dedicated to Lists of older Games that were programmed for Vista and won't work with 7.

Actually if you are referring to what the game looks by "games that came around this time" this is actually fairly modern title. It doesn't look like that because it's old, it looks like that because it's meant to look like that.

Was actually looking more at the fact that it didn't list 7 in the OS Requirements...but Thanks :)
I'm still unsure how to tell if Games before 7 will run on it, short of trying a Demo and those are becoming a rarity.

Works like a charm on Win7 x64 :) If you have an issue for some reason you could try to run it as administrator and compatibility mode (Win XP SP3) for example.

You don't really tell us your problem...but:

If you are having issues running games on Steam with Windoes 7, try this (honestly, it WORKS...I don't know how, but it does):

Create a new windows user with admin privaleges. Log into that account and go into steam and try the game. This method has solved many issues for some reason. I couldn't get Deus Ex to run via Steam, this solved it; I couldn't get Zune to detect my phone, this solved it. Something is farked with permissions and such, so give it a try.

But anyways, I'm on Windows 7 64bit and it runs fine.
