Trying to play grand prix 4 in windows 7 64 bit

hi, i cant play gp4 in windows 7 64 bit. All i get is a blank black screen with a white cursor on load up

i have tried running it in xp service pack 2 compatability mode with no luck

As I have windows 7 premium , is that the problem? is it although I can change the settings in properties mode for the exe. file I dont actually have this feature on windows premium?

if thats the case do I need to upgrade or download a patch?

thank you in advance for any help

This may be a little Nuts.

Goto your Graphics Cards Setting, Change all the AA, AF, Triple and all the others TO OFF or let the app decide.

This will now be ok.

well, im just about ready to give up... looked everywhere and cant work out why i have a blank screen with cursor.

tried loads of stuff, reinstalled and still task manager says the program is not running.

yet i done a fresh install on another computer running xp and it worked fine.

i even copied the game onto a flash drive from the working xp version and nothing.

can i ask again if i have windows 7 premium does the compatibilty mode actually work or is it just higher versions?

window premium and other modes

hi, im trying to run gp4 the game on windows 7 without luck

so i tried run running in in xp mode service pack 2 and 3

am i right in saying though that although i can check the box to run in xp mode in settings for the execute file, windows 7 premium wont run this mode and i need to upgrade to a higher version of windows 7 to gain this facility?

might explain why the game isnt running?

RC1 to Grand Finale
Tomorrow Windows 7 RC will officially come out legally. Many will try it and I want to but I am not certain if I want to dive right into it at this point.
