Will play, just make sure you are an administrator and also run the setup as administrator

Hi Parkwood,

According to the Windows 7 Compatibility Center, Doom 3 and RoE are both compatible with Windows 7. Just in case, you can try running setup as admin (as suggested by Stevy22) and in Compatibility mode (below). Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Here's a tutorial on Run as administrator
