Just did a major rebuild of my desktop and decided to reinstall/remod the great Bethesda games I've played, but never finished. I was totally startled that I can run Morrowind and Oblivion on my Win7 64-bit beast, especially as I can't run Fallout3, one of my favorites. For some reason I like Fallout3 better than Fallout NV, need to look at setting up an XP machine, maybe with a KVM box, just for Fallout3.

Goal is to do a total Arwen modded Oblivion and actually play the thing through. I've never played Morrowind, but I've read there are a lot of excellent mods available to polish it a bit, so that should be interesting

What about Fallout 3 does not work on your win 7 machine?

I am using win 7 pro 64 and have had no problems either in the installation or operation of Fallout 3. Looking at the shortcut does not show it running in win xp compatibility mode.

Hmm, just did a re-install of OS, need to recheck Fallout3. Were you guys running the Steam version or a patched up DVD version? I have both and it was the Steam version that wouldn't run, maybe simplifying things a little might be helpful.
