It would be nice if Paradox had a list with their games and if they work with Windows 7 (both 32 bit and 64 bit). When it is like this you don't buy older games because you don't know if they will run properly, or at all.

That would be nice.

Meanwhile, you could try the demo for Elven Legacy (plain version) from here http://www.elven-legacy.com/#/downloads/demo/ and see if it works on your computer. If the demo works, then the patched and updated collection version should be sure to work.

If the demo doesn't work, try mailing GamersGate and asking them if their Legacy Collection works with Win 7. If they say yes, then you should be able to claim a refund if it doesn't. (But really it should)

The demo worked. I've played the tutorials and the mission. So the collection should also work then?
Isn't the downloadable GamersGate version the same that I can buy as a DVD?

The collection should work if the demo works. Demos are rarely updated to match new OS, while the main game might actually be patched to make it work.

Yea, so the same thing applies if you buy it in a store - ask them first if it will work on your Win 7 computer and if you can return it if it doesn't work. Usually easier to find a person allowed to make such decisions if you contact the company by mail, since they can just not reply to your question until the right guy is in. If you visit a store that "right guy" has to be present while you are.

OK Nikolai II. I'll take my chances and buy the collection on the internet. Hope it will work on my laptop with Windows 7, otherwise I'll try to kick some life in my old desktop.
Thanks for your help.

Please return here and share your findings - either way it will be good for others to have confirmation.

Four-five hours and everything works well. I run the game in Windows XP (Service Pack 3) compatibility mode and as administrator. My Windows 7 is a 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium.

Thank you for the information, and hope you are enjoying the game :)

Very much. Don't know if it's the music but I get the same feeling as when I played Dark Omen, many years ago. It also had artefacts, but the game was a real time strategy game and not so complex. But the feeling was great. Anyway Elven Legacy is a very fun game (so far).
