what he meant is that he wouldnt be posting it here if he wasnt confirming it worked in 6956...

i might check if some games work
also you can check my specs...(laptop is the test machine)
see i have ATi
im using base drivers since i find those the most stable

umm so far the sucess has been on 6956
so can try that
and i believe you already have a thread on that (or i saw that this was posted...)
if no one has answered then no one has found an answer....
eventually (and i dont have this game so i dont know what to tell you....) someone will

sorry to be harsh....

okay, just for the info. i got the games that i play on VISTA to run on Windows 7 6801.
games like NFS Undercover, RA3, etc. all runs fine on 6801.

the only game i played on 6956 is GTA IV, so i dont really know about the rest of the games.

and im using the latest NVIDIA ForceWare 180.84 BETA provided at nzone.

i cant understand why GTA4 is the only game that will run on 6956..??? (for nvidia users)

i did manage to run 3DMARK06 though, so i know the new build is capable, just cannot figure it out...

haha, that's cool. 6956 is a much better build. but it could have been better with a proper installer.

as for 64-bit, i doubt there will be as the leaked version was a VHD and it's 32-bit.

shame that 64bit wont be out cuz i got lots of ram funny thing was with GTA 4 it installed in compatibility mode but soon has game starts nothing will move on the screen the car bit at the beginning wont move it moves for a second and thats it made me so angry i dont think its worth going to 6956 32bit just to play one game. so i will hold out for beta1 jan 09 anyone know then if there will be 64bit released ? thnx in advance.
