I've been digging through my game library in order to offset monotony, and just installed Bioshock. The installation went as would be expected, and the game started out okay, but when coming upon the very first mutant, which fled up and wall from a flying robot, the game persistently crashing, just as Atlas begins to speak.
From what I've read elsewhere, the game should work on Windows 7. The only issues that I've read about were that C++ Redist x64 had to be installed (I've got about every flavor of that I know of), and that DX9 was required, but the autoupdate seemed to have installed that during the setup. I set the compatility to Vista SP2, but that didn't help. What else can I try to make it work?
