    Hey everyone. Looking for a clean, downloadable install of the old "Dark Sun - The Shattered Lands" from back in the early 1990's that will run on windows 7. Thanks.

    I believe that the Dark Sun titles are considered Abandon-ware and can be obtained free in various sites.

    You can always run DosBox or some of the newer DosBox-menu programs to run those games. Like D-fend Reloaded which I use.
    or other loaders (here is a list http://www.dosbox.com/wiki/DOSBoxFrontends).

    But you'll have to contend with the same graphics and controls as when it originally released. Until someone decides to spend $100,000s of their money to covert it to run on Windows 7/10, you'll have to live with "old school." -)
