Getting hitman 47 to work on windows 7 64 bit

I am running windows 7 64 bit and hitman 47 is not working... it crashes as soon as I try to start a game... get no particular error message just says it has stopped working...

All my drivers are upto date and have dx9 installed... have tried different compatability modes but no luck...

here are my system specs:

System Manufacturer/Model Number Acer Aspire M3910 OS Windows 7 Premium 64 bit CPU Intel 870 quad core Motherboard Acer Memory 4g Graphics Card(s) 320 gt nvidia geforce Sound Card Realtek Monitor(s) Displays Acer P236H Screen Resolution 1920 x 1080 Hard Drives 450 GB Sata 7200 RPM Someone said to run it in opengl... but when I go to options to change this game just crashes...

any help?

are you using right-click compatability mode?

Do you have the latest drivers installed?

1: Update Direct X :

2. Update (Custom, Clean install) Nvidia driver (uninstall older driver first) :
http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/win7-winvista-64bit-270.51-beta-driver-uk.html

This new driver solves for me the crashing problem in DirectX mode..

3. Use this to solve the speed problem u may have.. :
Max CPU: Another one for your developer toolbox... - Kenny Kerr

Stressing half of your cores will give the game normal speed..

4. Download and install Nglide which emulates "3DFX" drivers for this game :
http://www.zeus-software.com/downloads/nglide

Tweak your settings: START --> ALL PROGRAMS --> EIDOS INTERACTIVE --> Hitman - Codename 47 --> click on "SETUP" and choose your resolution and Direct X, Opengl or 3DFX..

Good luck :P

So you use 270.51 beta.. one driver before this one and directx mode will crash..
My speed is way to much on a dual core and since you have a quad core ..

My version of Hitman Codename 47 is "b192".. (you can see this on the right-above corner if you start the game)
I have an older version and that one doesn't work..

Try this patch:
http://www.filestube.com/faP98w3aDAjPP8AJAmF98G/Hitman-Codename-47-SP1-b192.html

It will work in all modes

OpenGL + 3DFX Nglide mode was the only way to get it working on older drivers from Nvidia..
This with version "b192"

With 270.51 beta this is solved for DirectX mode as i mentioned..
I'm testing these games with every driver coming out.. :P
