The HPS games can have issues with newer Nvidia gpu drivers. If the game was patch after December of last year, it is good to go. Otherwise it can have graphical issues displaying the map.
Win 7 64 has nothing to do with the game playing or not.
Funny that HPS has a section on their site "Called Vista/Windows 7 issues" then... Besides, advising the user to downgrade a couple of .dll files to ones that are SEVEN years old to play a game is hardly solving the problem...
The information relating to that link concerns the following problems:
- Issues displaying the help file (this has since been rectified by Microsoft allowing users to download the older help file viewer). Not critical, the help files are also available in PDF form if you don't want to install the Microsoft update;
- Issues when installing into the "program files" directory. An issue that is easily solvable by installing into a different path or running the game as admin; and
- An error displayed at the end of instalation, which has no effect on the installation at all and so can be ignored.
Now, none of these are critical and have no effect on them working. I run Tobruk 41 which was last updated in 2007 on both a SLI Nvidia system, a Crossfire ATI system and a Macbook Pro laptop.....no problems, which is similr to many others.
In in the interest of trying to help you get them running on your system, what problems are you actually having? Does the game refuse to run at all, or are you experiencing issues when running a game?
Also, I can't find anywhere on the HPS site where they tell you to download seven year old DLL files, are you able to post the link?
