Windows 7 Tomb Raider Anniversary on win 7 64bit


New Member
Hi guys,
I just found out that Tomb Raider Anniversary is a remake of the original Tomb Raider lol , which got me interested in playing it.
Anyway I downloaded the demo but I can't get it to run - the game crashes after the copyright screen with the standard message "Tomb raider anniversary demo has stopped working".
I am running windows 7 64bit on a dell laptop
core2duo 2,6 ghz
4gb ram
nvidia 8600m gt
I think the problem is either win7 or the video card. I do have the newest nvidia drivers. I also tried all compatibility modes. Any ideas? Anyone running "anniversary" or win7?
