Windows 7: FEAR and Rome: Total War on Windows 7 64bit (NIGHTMARE)

FEAR and Rome: Total War on Windows 7 64bit (NIGHTMARE)

If any of you can solve this one, you win all of my Christmas internets.

On a more serious note, neither of these games will work after MUCH troubleshooting: F.E.A.R. Gold with the expansions and Rome: Total War with the Barbarian Invasion.
I've made threads on other sites dedicated to both of these games individually, and no one can figure out either problem.

OK, these are the different ways that I've tried to get FEAR to work.

-Compatibility mode for XP SP2
-Compatibility mode for XP SP3
-Compatibility mode for Vista
-With and without administrator privileges
-Reinstalled with the .exe files on the dvd for the game in compatibility mode
-Disabled crossfire
-Force exception on FEAR with DEP (Data Execution Prevention)
-Set maximum memory to 2048MB within msconfig
-Tried to fix using Compatibility Troubleshooter

Ughhhhh

guys. I just want this to work. I really don't even care about Rome right now, although it'd be nice icing on the cake that would be FEAR.

When I try to launch FEAR, it gives me this error message:

When I try to launch Rome: Total War, it just closes without an error message.

I don't know where to go with this one, guys. All of my drivers are up to date (I just downloaded them today to make sure).

I'm almost ready to give up. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Uhh, do you have another computer with vista or XP so we can test them on those ones? Also, You seen to have tried everything and you have an exellent machine. So perhaps it's just not compatible with Win 7?

well, i do have a second computer but it's a laptop with integrated graphics, so chances of it running FEAR are 0. I might be able to try R:TW on it however, but before installing windows 7, i had vista and ROME worked on that anyways. The only things that have changed between then and now are that before I didn't have a RAID 0 array, and I was running vista 32, and now I do have one and i'm running Windows 7 64.

Also, FEAR gold comes with patch 1.08 on it, so no upgrades are necessary.

I think it might be a compatibility problem with, say, another program interfering. Do any of you know where I could get that error message analyzed at? If there's some microsoft rep that I could contact who can, I would do so immediately.

Thanks again guys.

Here's how to get Rome TW to work.

Right-click your desktop and open the "screen resolution" menu. Now run Rome. There are still some display issues and it might crash, but I did manage to play a custom battle.

I'm running Rome with no expansions off a flash drive, and I have Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

OK try this Reinstall one of the games then defrag right click on the Icon on the desktop for the game:
Goto> Compatibility Tab. Under Compatibility mode put the last OS you had it working well on (example XP SP3) then check "Disable visual themes" And check "disable desktop composition". Also check " Run this program as an administrator". Some games for what ever reason have a problem with "Aero" and all the fancy "Bling" that 7 has.
