Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

The only way to know for sure is to read on the game box what they work with. If they are old, they probably won't work.

All of them should work fine. Only one I'm not sure about is Jurassic Park.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit/XP x64

I got Jurassic Park installed under Windows XP SP3 compatibility and had the CPU affinity for the exe set to CORE0.
However this doesn't work on my friends PC so it may not for yours.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I can confirm Zoo Tycoon 2, Rome: Total War and Spore all running on my install of Win7 x64. I have Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 partly working as well but I couldn't get past a couple of graphic glitches - but that could be my video card/drivers/what have you.
