Windows 7: Dungeon Keeper 2

Dungeon Keeper 2

Please can anybody tell me if there is a fix for this? Here is my situation:

I have not played this game for many years but as I was bored waiting for AION release I thought I would have a crack at it again and I have played it with no problems for the first four levels, however on level five (when you have the option to take two paths) it crashes at random times or if I try to access the menu. It just crashes to desktop with DKII.exe has stopped working. I have tried Win98, WinXP SP2 compatibility, tried ticking disable visual theme and all those boxes, and yes I am updated to the latest 1.7 patch so I'm stumped and a sad panda right now because I can't play it!

Any tips please?

EDIT: Forgot to mention I am running on x64.

Regards

Nevermind it seems I had some hacked corrupt version known as "Silver Edition" that crashes after level 4 so I bought the original game cheap off Ebay!

Dungeon Keeper 2 on x64
I've read about a few people getting this to work properly on Windows 7 64-bit but with their settings my game crashes right after the opening video (as it does without compatibility as well). I also tried creating a shortcut with the -32biteverything param. Any input? Thanks!

Dungeon Siege on Windows 7
I've looked into the threads on the Compatibility page, but it didn't really go into detail on how to make Dungeon Siege work on Windows 7. My problem is that the game will start up and run, but the graphics are a bit screwy when wanting to play/make characters. It does this weird "flash and lag"...

Dungeon Keeper 1 Gold
I tried most compatibility, + 3d versions of the game. I can't seem to start it. The game goes to the first screen with The horned reaper on it, then it minimises into a 1/8 black screen in the top left and then 10 secs later dissappears into nothing. I don't want to run this game in...
