Windows 7: The Godfather 1 game issues

The Godfather 1 game issues

Hi
Recently i pulled out my old copy of the godfather to replay, but autorun did not work. None of the exes on the disk (autorun.exe and the install exe) did anything. I then looked on troubleshoot and went online and apparently it doesnt work with Windows 7. Can anyone think of something that I could do to get it working?

Thanks

It may be a compatility issue and the game simply doesn't perform under a 64-bit OS. The other issue could be that you're running an old beta version of Windows 7, which isn't the same as the RTM.

Unfortunately I have no other suggestions to offer

Sorry

It's still not the RTM (Final release). I'm not saying the game is going to work with the RTM either, so...

Good luck.
