Thumbs down Every Valusoft game crashes in Win7 64 bit... (Simulation Gaming Pack purchase)

I've recently purchased the Simulation Gaming Pack under the Steam Holiday Sale 2010, and it seems that not a single game in that package runs out of the box on Windows 7 64 bit.

Basically, I try to start the game, and I see a logo splashscreen for maybe 1 second before I am dumped back to the desktop. The application icon is still visible in the taskbar but every time I click on it to switch back into the application, I am dumped to the desktop again.

I realise that some of the games in that package are 5 or so years old, and Win7 isn't listed in the recommended specs, but it's a bit of a rude shock to see that not a single game is playable on a standard Win7 machine in that bundle.

Is there any possible work around out there that people may know of to resolve the issue??

The John Deere game seems to work.
Is your graphics drivers up-to-date?
Are you running some sort of anti virus that could be keeping them from running?

They are running ok for me and I have Windows 7 x64. Have you an ATI card, and if so have you allowed it to default to game settings rather than forcing a 3D profile? Just a thought.

Thumbs up possible fix

Hey I just bought this game and I was having the same problems. You mentioned running it in compatibility, which I tried, and it fixed the problem. the .exe is in Program Files(x86)-->Steam-->steamapps-->common-->18 wheels of steel american long haul. I ran it in compatibility for XP SP3 and it worked. hope this helps.

Thx for your tips, but when I try it the same way you explained it, Windows ask me for permission to let "alh.exe" make changes on my computer.

If I click "Yes", the same question will come over and over again.

Have you got any other ideas?

Thanks

EDIT:
Trying to run the game without Comp-mode, the following error occures:

i find every game runs fine with a bit of tweaking. the only ones i have a problem with are Midnight Outlaw (doesnt work at all in win 7, never did - known issue that thq doesnt care to fix), and are you smarter than a 5th grader. i cant get it backed up.
