Not a bit, venus! I just added another edit to my first post referencing your list. I'm trying to allow people to see everything in the first post, so they don't have to go searching for a specific game through all the pages.

Becky was just saying there will be an end to my ability to edit that same post. I'll let the moderators decide, but perhaps at that point they'll just deal with Win 7 and gaming issues on a case by case basis.

Has anyone tried Safecracker or The Messenger? I have Windows7 Pro 64-bit.

I haven't seen these games in any of the testings. I really would like to know because I like both games very much.

I was wondering if anyone has tried Safecracker (either/both) versions and The Messenger? I really like these games. I have Windows 7 Pro.

I don't have either game. Did you check the lists I referenced from other gamers in my first post?

Hi; probably everyone knows this, but just in case; I re-played all the Nancy Drew games except for Secrets can Kill because I never finished this one. I hated it. All but two worked perfectly on Win.7 64 bit.
With "Stay tuned for Danger" I got an error message saying: your sound settings are being changed. It would not let me into the game.
I could not install Treasure in the Royal Tower. Only the "repair or uninstall" would come up.

Art of Murder loaded & played but with no sound.
Art of Murder 2 loaded & played but the conversations cut in & out.

Thanks Dragon,

I tried to install it again but the message something about 32 bit or 64 bit on my media comes up but I don't know how to check if mine has a 32 bit for a game like this. Can you help?

Carla, can you give us the error message word for word?

This is from the Microsoft website.

To find out if your computer is running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows, do the following:

1.Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
2.Under System, you can view the system type.

Win 7 is like that - it's really good at detecting a problem and present a possible solution. I'll let you get a little further into the game before I add it to the first post.
