After 7 years,I'm finally purchasing a top of the line Dell(XPS 8500)gaming PC,with a new widescreen monitor and all the bells and whistles. I'm lucky enough it still will come with Win 7 (I hate Win 8 at work, and would actually prefer to keep Win XP,but no go on THAT one).
All of my favorite games (at least a dozen of them) are listed on the box as not having Win 7 as an option (most of them have Win XP or even earlier systems,of course..some are YEARS old)....they've ALL run on Win XP for me. I won't have a problem with my dozen or so GOG games (since all I have to do...I ASSUME...is re-install these from the GOG site, as Win7)...but these other games...such as Anacapri,Barrow Hill,Lost Crown,Tunguska,Secret Files 2,Mysterious Island,etc etc...since they don't have Win XP as an install option, then I assume I will not be able to re-install them and NOT be able to play them anymore?
I would hope this isn't the case,but I fear this might be so?
I am going to re-post this in the TECH board on GB as well,so pelase forgive the double post. The PC is being delivered within a week.
If I can't re-install or play them...oook on the games sold board becausae there will be a treasure trove of adventure games I'll be selling :-)
