Windows 7: Games won't launch on my new Windows 7 32-bit partition on an iMac.

Windows 8 64 bit PRO

In Mac OS does it show which display graphics adapter is enable?
I just want to make sure that by default its reading the graphics to rule out the possibility of it being disable.

I have a lot of hope for these drivers to work

They are design for Windows 7 32 bit Mac Boot camp

Oh... I forgot I never replied to the other member. Unfortunately, that update didn't work.

UPDATE: When I try to run Portal 2 now instead of the screen showing no action, I get a Steam pop-up saying "Steam is launching Portal 2" then the screen goes black for a split-second as if the game is about to run then it disappears and goes back to the desktop. I was wondering if you knew what this meant.

Yes i have, it's an issue discuss many times with Steam players, however I dont have experience with it.

However it could be a DirectX Issue which is related to your graphics.
All of the problems you mention are basically the symtoms.

Give it a minute, maybe someone else will reply and help us out :)
There is always hope :)

I got it working. I popped back in my iMac 10.6 installation disc and it automatically installs all the needed material. My experience index reads 7.2 for graphics and gaming graphics. Thank you so much for your help and support.

It's been fixed and solved, I had a small gut feeling it was somehow Boot Camp needing an update.
