Most people need to use some/lots of compatibility settings. If you go to your Steam folder/steamapps/commom/real myst (or something like that) you can right click the EXE and enable admin, and set it for WinXP compatibility and anything else that makes sence (there are a few you will not want to do, like the 256 color and 640x480 res becuase the game have better than that).

You then waht to start the game like normal through Steam, and it should work better.

quick fix for realMyst on windows 7 is to right click on the steam icon on your desk top. This allows you to test compatabilities. It automatically selects what will work..usually windows 98 or xp. Nothing fancy to do, just let it do it's thing. I was crashing like crazy running windows 7 64 bit until I did this. Now I'm really enjoying the game and it's very stable!
