I am in the process of trying to find my "Play Disc" (Sunday Night). When I do I'm going to try both KOTOR 1 and 2. I thought I tried it and they worked, but I'll let you know.

Ive installed KOTOR 1 and have so far not gotten it to work, I installed the patch that was released after it and to no effect. I ran it in compatibility mode for XP SP 2, and as an administrator, I run the game and it goes to the black loading screen and it immediately crashes and stops working. If anybody gets it to work let me know!

KotOR Win7

I think it's the problem with nvidia drivers. I have installed Vista64 driver and KotOR 1 worked perfectly, but KotOR2 didn't work at all and Jedi Academy worked very badly... After installation of Windows7 driver from Windows Update KotOR1 stopped working at all, KotOR2 crashed, but Jedi Academy started to work.
I'm still looking for the solution...

KotOR and Win7

Hello again,
so far so good. I managed to run both KotOR and KotOR II on Windows 7. KotOR II, however, required to be launched in WinXP comatibility mode, but they are running both. I installed older nvidia drivers (Vista 64), and subsequently downloaded the new ones from Windows Update. There still many "why?" about this system, but after this KotOR runs. KotOR2 is a little bit unstable (hangs on "OBSIDIAN" display, but at least doesn't crash). Jedi Academy runs also, but I cannot get it to work properly in fullscreen mode. I have also tried SW "Republic commando" - works OK.

I've been able to run KOTOR 2 without any problems, or using compatability.

What graphic card do you have? I have nvidia 9800GT. I tried to install KotOR2 on Win 7 64 and 32 bit and without compatibility mode it crashed right after starting (showed the message "program stopped working")... It might be nvidia drivers aft all...

I just tried running it again with no luck, it still crashes right after start up. Even running in compat mode for XP S2 or Vista, and running as admin. Im running Win 7 32 Bit, with an NVidia card.

It certanly is the graphic card dirver. Try to download the newest Nvidia drivers from Windows update and run it again. KotOR2 will require compat mode with XP sp2, but KotOR1 will go as it is. They will both work a little bit unstable on first screen (Bioware for KotOR1 and Obsidian for KotOR2), but once you've gone thru - they work. Btw, Nvidia guys should work a little bit more on their drivers yet...
