Hello Ineedchip, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Chips wont run on a 64-bit Windows. However, if your Win7 is a 32-bit version, it runs well. There's nothing to install, just download the zip-archive, extract the files to a folder, and run the game.

I tested it on a 32-bit virtual Win7 just now, I had no problems to get it running.

That old game so important to you?

If you are running Win7 Professional or Ultimate, you could install Virtual PC and XP Mode, and run the game on XP Mode virtual machine. I tested it, works perfectly.

If you are running Win7 Home, Basic or Premium, you could use another virtualization application. Both VirtualBox and VMWare Player are free.

XP Mode includes a full free licence to XP Professional SP3. If you choose one of the two other alternatives I mentioned, you need a licensed 32-bit Windows (XP, Vista or Seven) install media.

The screenshots showing Chip's Challenge running on a 32-bit Windows 7 and XP Mode.

Yes, there is a way around this. My last post told what that way is: you can install virtualization software on your 64-bit system, then install a 32-bit operating system on a virtual machine, and run the game on it.

More about virtualization and Virtual PC (VMWare and VirtualBox are based on the same principle, working as VirtualPC does):This screenshot shows a 32-bit Windows 7 virtual machine (guest), running on a 64-bit computer (host). Click the image to see it bigger.

Nvm. I got it now. Thanks for the tip about Virtual PC. Works like a charm. Glad I went with Professional.
