I've been playing No One Lives Forever on Win 7 64-bit. No problems.

Couldn't get my driver for the wireless card working on the x64 RTM version, until I installed it using Vista SP2 compatibility mode. So there are scenarios where compatibility mode is actually useful.

Retail version of Titan Quest on Vista had problems (missing driver in DX10 that was in DX9), however Steam version works fine on 7 (RC 64 version, waiting on Postie for 7Home).

Steam version of Indy & the fate of Atlantis works great (original CD version also runs but crashes to desktop after a few minutes).
Civ 4 on Steam works great as does UT3, Crayon Physics & World of Goo.

Nobody had any lying around. Thought about downloading a WOW trial to test, but MMOs update so fast that it didn't seem worthwhile tbh...

I just have a question, I skimmed the article and you may have already stated this. Did you use Windows 7 Ultimate? Ultimate is the only version which actually has the XP compatibility mode so if you were using a different version this may fix some issues.

I can't wait to get my FREE!!! copy from Micro$oft :D.

Been happily playing WC3 and WoW on the RC for the last 6 months :D

Beyond Good and Evil (Steam Version) Works fine on 7 x64, albeit with some graphical glitches that aren't bad enough for me to warrant investigating :)

Read the article. It answers that question.

I'm only not answering it here because it's not as simple as your question makes out. We did use Ultimate, but there are two types of XP mode. There's an XP Mode intended for businesses wanting increased compatibility in office software and then there's the general purpose XP Compatibility mode which is in all versions of Windows and has been since XP. The 'True XP Mode' intended for businesses is actually completely unsuitable for games because of the way it isolates the graphics drivers. The article discusses this in more depth

I would read but I have an assignment to finish, looks like I will have to do it later.

*EDIT*
Cheers, thanks for that Joe.

You didn't test any Worms? :o
The boy 4rm oz 22nd October 2009, 10:57 Quote
Or BF1942, I could never get mine to run on Vista64, even BF2 has slight issues.

Beyond Good and Evil (GoG) version works fine here on Win7 64

I can tell you Worms Armageddon works fine - although a few graphical glitches in the menus, in game is absolutely fine

I have Win 7 64 bit. Almost everything works (BF 1942 is dodgy). Very happy with the OS!

Don't know what you've been doing wrong but Enemy Territory Quake Wars works perfectly fine on Windows 7 x64 here. I'm using the latest patch.
