Windows 7: Dungeon Keeper 2 on x64

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!

Have you tried a VM? What about Dos-Box?

I know I could get it to work in a VM, but I'd rather not have to if there is another solution. Also, DK2 was for Windows, not DOS... should I still try DOSBox?

This is what I did;

Install game normally,
Patch the game to the latest version (1.70 I think). If it crashes a lot while playing, you can try the more stable 1.6 patch (it was something like 1.6 don't remember).
Right click Dungeon Keeper2 shortcut and set compatibility mode to Windows2000 (others don't work).

Did you try these things?

By the way DosBox is worthless for Windows applications.

Kind Regards,
