Windows 7 Roller Coaster Tycoon 1; System Crash

Hello Windows 7 Forum Users & Admins,

I recently wanted to "relive" the classic game but encountered some errors along the way. I spent countless amounts of time trying to find a cure. I have read that playing RTC1 is indeed possible after a couple of minor changes to the exe. file.

I have...

Changed the compatibly to Windows 95, Windows 98/Me, and Windows XP SP2 & 3.

Checked "Disable Visual Themes" & "Disable Desktop Composition"

Ran as Admin.

Downloaded a few patches for the Game.

As of now I can Save and Load games but the game within 5 minutes or less freezes and locks up my system so I can't "Alt-Tab" or "Ctrl-Alt-Del". My only option is to do a hard restart of my system and try again.

Anything would be helpful. Please feel free to email me personally if you so

Thank you:p
