    Dude you need to chill out, I'm sorry if you didn't look at my rig specs below my post that clearly state I'm running Windows 7 x64, but there's no need to post negative feedback when the information answered your question.


    BTW having a INTEL GPU chipset shouldn't cause any problems running this game, its nearly 10 years old and predates the need for huge number crunching GPUs, it was made in the era where anything ran long as you had about a 1ghz cpu.

    Cam,
    I think you'll need to rightclick on the file you've downloaded (as you've installed winrar right? rar file is just another way of compressing files like the zipped files you see everywhere) and unpack the file to somewhere of your choice like your desktop for instance..
    Then open the unpacked file and ignore the 'Play Tiberian Sun' icon as that didn't work for me and navigate to the main game folder. Look for the exe shown in the screenshot and rightclick on it and choose properties, then compatibility. Set it for 'Win98' and your good to go.. Click on the icon you've just changed and the game will start.

    Yesterday I downloaded the Allied disc for 'Red Alert' and following the install instructions found on the same page managed to successfully burn it to disk as well as install it.
    So it seems most of the games will run under Windows 7 as long as the guidelines are followed... Happy nostalgic gaming people ;).
