There shouldn't be any compatibility problems. Since the Steam release the majority of people seem to be playing DD in Win 7.

I have Windows 7 64-bit, and I bought this game a few days ago. So far, seems to be doing just fine. :-) Totally can't beat the $6.00 price-tag,

I've got Windows 7 64 bit as well. Thank you both for the info.

Just finished without any problems on my w7 x64. However I reccomend to use the application "runfirst"
What is "runfirst" ?

From the RunFirst[www.activeplus.com] site:

RunFirst is a command line utility that lets you start an application on the first processor of a multi-processor system or on an hyper-threaded single processor system.

What this utility does is the same as what you can do using the Task Manager -> Set Affinity command.

RunFirst is useful to start an application that crashes when running on a multi processor system. The runfirst.exe command can be inserted in a shortcut so that when you start an application the process affinity is automatically set to run on a single processor.

Some people have had problems with periodic static sounds in the game running on multi-core systems, which setting it to run on a single core will usually prevent.

EDIT: the easiest way to get the game running on a single core would be to right click the div.exe executable in the '..\SteamApps\common\divine_divinity' install folder, select Properties, switch to the Compatibility tab and set the game to run in Win 95 / 98 / ME mode.

Divine Divinity runs perfectly on windows 7 and 8, but you may get low fps, like 10-20, to fix this you switch the game settings from Direct 3D to software and fps goes up to 100+, the game is so old that any pc can run it in software mode a lot faster than direct x.
