Windows 7 compatible?

[Post New]by March_Hare on Mar 20, 10 6:02 AM
Hi all,
I downloaded the trial version just now but it won't launch properly for me in Windows 7. I get the error message that it's already running in another window (it isn't), then a lot of flashing to black and back again with different screen resolutions, then it exits and reports i have used a minute of game play.

Anyone else have this happen and/or have any tips to fix this? Thanks

I just downloaded the trial on my laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and it started up fine. Try updating your drivers (video and such). I had another game that was causing the same problem you describe and as soon as I updated the video driver, it worked fine.

Oh, okay thank you, I'll try that.

edited to add: all my drivers were up to date and direct x was fine.

But rebooting my machine did the trick - for whatever reason, it launched normally after I did that.
