    i have finally managed to get MM9 (UBIsoft version) running on windows 7 64 bit.

    After installing the original UBIsoft CD, I attempted many things including the following

    installed patch 1>2
    installed patch 2>3a
    New Cshell program
    Updated all DirectX components from Microsoft as someone suggested.

    The program is running with the following compatibility settings
    Windows 98/ME compatibility mode
    Disable visual themes (ticked)
    Disable dektop compostion (ticked)
    Disable disply scaling on High DPI settings. (Ticked)

    Run program as administrator (Ticked)

    I will now attempt to re-enable some of these settings to see if it improves the game without breaking it again!

    Thansk to everyone for all their previous posts which led me finally to the solution

    OK so it all looked promising... I was able to get to the island and complete the first task, get into the catle, but then it stuck and it now won't work again.
    I'll keep trying...

    I have got MM9 working well now in windows 7. the only issue is the screen hanging at the little ship when loading a saved game or a new area, but ALT-TAB to the desktop screen and back cures it. I can live with that providing you are not attacked the moment you enter an area!

    The settings i am using are:
    On the properties of the lithtech program the compatibility mode is set to Win XP (Service pack 2)... other modes may also work.
    All other settings on the properties form are un-ticked.

    The video options in the program are ALL turned off and I am using the primary display driver in the display adapter box to handle the graphics rather than my G-Force graphics card (although this might actually in effect be the same thing.
    ALL other settings are unticked (e.g. blood spats etc.)


    The game is totally playable and i have just completed beet hoven and retrieved the manuscript.
