I couldn't get MME to work on my core i5 Win7 64-bit Home Premium after following many of the workarounds posted here and elsewhere. But RealMyst gave me no issue whatsoever. They are basically the same game, with RealMyst being a 3D version of MME. So I suggest you forget MME and get RM instead. I did, however, have success running the original Myst CD-ROM on DOSBox emulation of Windows 3.1 (http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=9405), but you need the original CD-ROM for that, and MME is re-tooled version of the CD-ROM.

I have the DVD edition of Riven from 2003 and I suspect Steam has the same version. It also didn't give me any problem - no need to install old versions of Quicktime like some people said, didn't even have to run it in compatibility mode. My 2003 DVD version of Exile also had no issue whatsoever.
