Yep, works like a charm, if that's what you're asking

Same here, it does not require anything like run as admin or compatibility mode, it just runs like it was made for win7.

Yep, I have Win7 64 bit but when it finally downloaded, it kept giving the message "Minimum requirements not met" and wouldn't launch. I followed this gent's advice and it works like a charm now.

Windows 7 has been out for a long time, modern PC's and laptops can run x64, and it's the same price as 32-bit, isn't it?

I wonder what the percentage is? If you were to ask in the TW2 forum, my guess would be over 50%, but there are still a lot of people playing the first game on older PC's so it's probably lower here.

I'm running it just fine with Win7 64bit as well. Only issue I'm having is that character models at a distance animate very choppily, though I'd wager that's more an issue with the game itself than anything else.

Take a look at the steam hardware survey. I don't know how many users were asked, but it shows that 64 bit systems are used by 58.81% of all participants, almost all of them in Windows 7 and Vista.

Thanks, and that answered my question. 41% overall.
