Can anyone confirm that the steam version of this game works on Windows 7 32 bit?

I just don't want to waste my very limited money >.>

The game runs under the x64 of Windows 7 so I would assume it would run on the 32bit version as well. I would say as long as you meet the minimum settings you should be fine.

I can confirm this but it also depends on your hardware.

For anyone thats wondering, I bought the steam deluxe version with all the DLC and it works perfectly, played for 4 hours straight with no hiccups. So it works, don't be afraid to buy it

Can anyone confirm that any game ever made does not work on Windows 7?

I was surprised how much does work with windows 7, very few thing don't work and others have fixes available.

One thing if you have 64 bit version - 16 bit applications will NOT run!!

I bought Psychonauts and it doesn't run on Windows 7 64-bit. Luckily I just beat it before my computer with XP crashed.

It works perfectly on both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows 7.

Haha, okay this is true. I actually tried to play some Windows 3.1 games on Win7 and they wouldn't execute. I had to install Win3.1 on DosBox and play them in that virtual environment.

Psychonauts works just fine for me on Win7 64-bit.

I had problems with Dirt 1, trouble working with systems containing more than one core. Fortunately, the forums were able me with the settings changes I needed.

So like others I'm cautiously optimistic. I even purchased Win 7 x64 Pro just so I'd have Virtual PC as a backup in case Win 7 didn't work. Like others, I was surprised how well Win 7 worked with old titles.

I also discovered Virtual PC/XP mode is total crap. Got ripped off there. Don't waste your money on the "Professional" version of Win 7.
