  • Hi, please check the game if it compatible with Windows 7, you can check it on:

    Windows 7 Compatibility Center

    And you can try to run this game in Vista Compatible Mode.


    If the game you can run on Windows XP, I suggest you using Windows XP Mode to install the game:

    Install and use Windows XP Mode in Windows 7

    Hope it helps.
