    Compatibility mode maybe?


    I notice you mentioned you tried running as administrator, however, have you tried changing the exe's to run in compatibility mode?

    For instance, with Mass Effect, the files you copied to your HDD would include a setup file, correct? Try right-clicking on "setup.exe" and select properties. Then go to the compatibility tab, and try to run it in compatibility with maybe XP SP3 or even Vista SP2 (on top of running as admin).

    Hope this helps, let me know if you've already tried this or not.

    Windows 7 64-bit RC

    Working:
    Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning - absolutely not one issue with the game, perfection!

    Not working:
    Fallout 3 - Freezes after playing for so long, ive looked online for a solution, no avail. If anyone has tips please shed some light.

    Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2 - this one id love to get working, i really want to play it badly, it does the exact same thing as fallout 3. I can play it for so long, and then bam, it freezes. My PC is more than strong enough to run the games at max, yet i freeze randomly. Music still plays, sounds etc, the screen is just frozen and locked. Even in vent i can still talk to people.. its strange.. Anything i can try? (I can't run Warhammer 40k as admin, because its in steam for some lame reason. Any way to take it out of steam?)

    I don't know if this has been posted already but I just found out that Neverwinter Nights 2 does not work straight up in Build 7100. It'll give an error message about not being able to detect your video card. There is a workaround (you have to download a .dll file or two) or I've heard people being able to run it with Build 7122.

    For Mass Effect, I'm just fighting the horrible load times when I load up the game. It loads up slightly faster if I run it in windowed mode but the performance sucks. On the other hand, fullscreen performance is smoother but the load up time is ridiculous. On top of that, doing Alt-Tab will lock the game up forcing an "End Task".

    Speaking of Alt-Tab, I'm still facing that issue with Fallout 3. Also, it crashes after a while which is somewhat frustrating (I've done all the updates).

    I'm gonna go ahead and try some more games out now that I have a better video card.

    hey what exactly was the problem? i'm running 7077 now and i havn't really installed much.

    some details please would be helpful, ie. which build are you running? is it x86 or x64? and what exactly was the problem? did the installer not run at all or does it install then crash when you try to run it?

    Sims 3 runs awesomely on build 7077 x64 so far. the graphics in the actual game are slightly better than sims 2, not by much though. and it's not too heavy on system resources.

    I just got Windows 7 setup the other day and havn't had a chance to install very many games yet...All of the games I have installed so far work marvously well except for one...Rise of the Argonauts which I posted a thread about the problem here : http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-games/6252-rise-argonauts-will-not-install-please-help.html

    These are the games that work great so far....None are in any kind of compatability mode.

    Chronicles of Riddick : Assault on Dark Athena : (I havn't tryed playing the original game that installed at the same time with the sequel.) Plays really well ZERO problems.

    Age of Conan : Installs and Plays very well!

    Runes of Magic : Installs and plays great in Window mode (For some reason I got an error mssage when I tryed to play in full screen ..... Cant remember if it was the same way when I set it up on Vista.

    I have good news about Rise of the Argonauts the problem with installing the game was all my fault The CD had a tiny smudge of gunk and once cleaned the game installed with ZERO problems. It also plays ok except for some sound issues that hopefully I can get worked out....I don't believe it is a Windows problem though as this game still has many bugs that need to be patched.

    Rise of the Argonauts... Installs and Works on Windows 7!

    CoD & MoH AA BSODs

    I'm just getting started with a new installation of W7 (B7100 x64), and the first two games that I tried to run ended up with a BSOD before the games actually started. I don't have a debugger installed yet, so I can read the dump files, but the Event Viewer describe them as follows"
