according to Microsoft, it should run OK:
Windows 7 Compatibility for Max Payne 2: The Fall Of Max Payne: Take-Two Interactive. Drivers, Updates, Downloads

download and install patch version 1.05 for the full game (- ie. not the Demo..)

Uninstall game completely, restart, install game again with admin rights (explore\cdrom\setup.exe\right click and Run as Admin.

Uninstall and Install fresh audio and video drivers.

YMMV but sometimes this has helped me with old game problems. No, perhaps it is not a 100% solution but at this point... you got nothing to loose!

sorry to hear that, solidsneake

I'll try and install it myself, here - I have a copy on the shelf..

meantime, could you fill in as much information as possible
about your system - that will help with the reseach..

BTW - is that a desktop or a laptop..??

it installed OK on my rig - runs a bit "lumpy", mouse doesn't flow too well
but its playable, at least..

I installed the patch 1.01 from Rockstar Games - that seems to be the right one..

give it a try..
