    Thinking of picking up The Witcher Enhanced Edition - Platinum and I was wondering if anyone has had any issues running it on Win 7 before I head on and get it.

    Cheers

    I bought “The Witcher Enhanced Edition” (minus the Platinum?) a few weeks ago and I had to give up on it after a few hours. The game kept crashing randomly on my Windows 7 64bit machine, completely sucking the fun out of it.
    From what I can tell, if you have Win7, buying it is a bit of a gamble. Some people have no trouble with it, others have the same issues that I had.
    I even recall seeing an online game store that had the game listed as being incompatible with Windows 7.

    If you still have a Windows XP CD/DVD lying around somewhere, you can set up your PC to dual boot Win7 and WinXP (there are plenty of simple guides on how to do this if you do a google search). That would solve any potential compatibility problems with “The Witcher” and Win7.

    have you tried using XP compatibility mode? There is also a virtual XP you can download from Microsoft that is a virtual machine.

    I'll have a dig about and see if I still have the disks from my old computer - new lappy so not a new install over xp, unfortunately.
