they won't care. and to be honest I think it's microsoft who should care, not blizzard. they made that game 11 years ago, and it's ms's responsibility to be backwards compatible, not blizzards. altough it would be nice of them to care.

Agreed, but blizzard isnt doing much still, not to mention bnet connectivity is the worse i have seen in an online game in a long time..

Anyway im installing vmware, hopefully that'll let me play in decent conditions

No, the problem is not that simple to fix.

I've recently upgraded my NVIDIA drivers to the new version that just came out, and it now stretches it to completely fill my 1920x1200 widescreen instead of having two empty black spaces on the side. But it still freezes quite often with the music still playing...

Just a heads up, nothing on all 7 pages of this thread have worked for me.

I have:

Windows 7 RTM 7100 x64
HP dv7-1175nr with:
Core2Duo T5800 ( 2GHz 800MHz FSB 2MB L2 )
4GB RAM
320GB HDD
NVida GeForce 9600M w/ 512 Dedicated Video up to 2GB Shared

And Starcraft with Brood Wars.

Today, I was doing exceptionally well with Terran against 1 computer opponent (yes, I'm a noob, and I'm not ashamed haha), and then right as I was about to launch my first attack, it froze.

Please help, or I might just give up on Starcraft 1 until SC2 comes out. Maybe if we're lucky there will be a "special pre-order edition" that will come with Win7-compatible SC1...

its not that simple... and since it affects far more games then just Starcraft.. though in starcraft it is the most prominent (age of empires usually runs perfect once you have got it to the main menu)....

What's funny is that I now try to save every 5 minutes or so. Then when I forget, the freeze comes. Pretty frustrating, but I still like running Starcraft in Win7 rather than XP Mode because I don't have to set things up.
