Have you tried the fixing method in this thread? It's for Win 10, but it may have a Win 7 equivalent.

your reply goes to nothing possibly like a solution

I was referring to the stated font change issue after attempting to run Return to Krondor. The solution in that linked thread fixed my issue a few years back on Win 10. It was very annoying that the game changed all my Windows fonts to the Return to Krondor font and then didn't change it back when it crashed.

Tried everything and it just crashes with an error message.

"An error has been detected which prevents the game from continuing.

Run into the same issues on win10 x64.
rtk.exe waits for other processes (SharePoint.exe in one case). Killing those with the task manager leaded to an error referencing the nvidia driver in the game log file. :-(

Uninstalled the game in GOG Galaxy. Downloaded the stand alone installer. Installed manually on C:\RTK. Game run into same unusual dependency. But after killing sharepoint it startet.

Conclucion. Game directory seems to make a difference.
