Well, I'm glad to hear that. I.. would hope that it wouldn't be too hard to make the changes necessary for Win7, seeing as how Win7 feels/seems more like a paid OS update. (Before you jump up and down, yes I am running Win7 x64 too...)
One more thing: does this mean that things like the end of Tex Murphy Overseer will be fixed up? As people seem to be having problems with that, regardless of the OS.
Just started to follow this thread. I now have a laptop with Windows 7 on so interested.
I offer this thought/solution to people about compatibility, I use VMWare Workstation a lot and version 7 HAS 3D video support and seems to work very well..
Not cheap, and hard to justify the cost for games, but as I use it for other things, well worth it.
With regards to Linux etc, I have DOSBOX compiled and running and have managed to use nearly all my gog games on Ubuntu no problem.

Hmm would i have to redownload my games? As long as GOG offers 7 compatability on games i have already bought for free, i,m not too worried.
Upon recently upgrading to 7 from XP Beneath a Steel Sky works perfectly but 7 compatability would be a great move for GOG.Com.
Though in a few years time when these games are considered old i would like to see these games which currently are crippled by DRM and Steam.
All Vavle games since and including HL2
Modern Warfare 2
Dawn of War2
Empire Total War
Dragon Age (this is a wierd one some copies have DRM some don'y)
C&C4 (yes it isn't out yet but according to the evil alliance you will need a constant internet connection to play even in single player)
In short all games which have evil internet activation DRM or are Steam only.
(You may have noticed i don't like steam)
Keep up the good work GOG!
100% Anti DRM 100% Pure.
I wouldn't mind redownloading win7 compatible titles I own, as long as my save games work. Look forward to hearing more at some point in the future :)

zactly. We'll see what happens I suppose :)
I'll stick with Vista...But good news for Windows 7 users.
Please keep supporting XP:) I hate Vista and will switch to Win 7 only if necessary.

Should work nicely (I have no problems on my machines). Try removing and reinstalling AIR.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64bit and so far haven't had any problems with ANY of my PC games.
I do find it a bit odd that a game will run on Vista, but not 7 since 7 is built on Vista's kernel.
EDIT: Okay something I would like is for the Win 7 Games Explorer to register games. My Vista Home Premium 32bit picks up Beneath a Steel Sky, but my Win 7 doesn't.

Just drag the game in question's shortcut into the Win 7 Games Explorer window and that will do it.

ExecutionerFive: Just drag the game in question's shortcut into the Win 7 Games Explorer window and that will do it.

I've done that, but all it comes up with is the emulator's S logo. Windows 7 find it normally, but it has no icon or info and is placed under "Unspecified"
EDIT: This only happens with Beneath a Steel Sky

Vista is less picky about how games are registered, I assume the process has matured and become more complete with 7. The GOG installer hasn't been updated for all games yet to register per 7's requirements (which works with Vista, so it's not necessarily "different", just a tighter path to follow).
It happens with other games as well, like Evolva and Sacrifice. The installer doesn't register in a way that 7 likes (but Vista accepts), but those (and some other) games are picked up by Windows' own "legacy games detection" and gets a working icon. This also happens with some games where the installer DO register correctly, like Advent Rising, Republic, Divine Divinity, and Psychonauts (so those games get two working icons, one from the installer and one from Windows detection).
