Anybody manage to get Max Payne to install in Windows 7 Beta 64-bit? I get a 64-bit OS error when I try installing, even with compatibility mode. As far as I know, installing the game in compatibility mode worked in 64-bit Vista.

Think running the game in a virtual machine would work? Like VMWare, for example.

Try the setup executable in the Disk1 folder.

I have applied the new patch... but no sound in cut scene.
Otherwise the game work well. I use The Setup from the disk.
I then applied the patch 1.05
Anyone has an answer to my problem ?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bits, 16 gig of ram etc....

Thanks.

Yes I just installed and beat it the other day.

- You need to run the setup from the disc, not autoplay.

- You need to update.

- You need to download a soundfix which can be found on google.

If this really still is an issue, please make a new topic about it. Thread necromancy is such an ugly habit.
