Has anyone had any cutscenes problems with agatha Christies evil under the sun ? Works perfectly in vista but with windows 7 the game cut scenes goes black.

Yes!
I had the same problem, gruffy, the cutscenes wouldn't play at all.
I think someone here came up with a fix so hang on and if I'm right, you'll get an answer when the experts wake up.
(Daylight Savings Time started an hour ago so they'll likely be groggy.) grin
You might try right clicking on the game icon and troubleshooting the game, setting the compatibility to Vista.
Or install it in My Documents where some games stop acting up for some reason.
I know I had to do that for Tale of a Hero.

There's an old thread ***here*** where Mad had the problem and solved it by buying another copy of the game. Check her post #832098.
