Windows 7: Neverwinter Nights 2 issues

I'm burning Build 7068 x86 right now. Afterwards I will install Built 7068 c64 and try playing NWN 2 on it. If that fails I will install the x86 version and try that way to see if x64 is the issue.

Did you get 7068 installed? I'm still trying to download it myself. :/

Yeah I installed it the night it was leaked. It has the same bug still. An user on Neverwinter Nights: Forum Index stated they had it work fine on Build 7000 x64 so it's apparently not x64 itself so much as all builds prior to 7000.

It worked on 7000 x64?
Hmm... I reinstalled my W7 because... well it doesn't matter really.
Anyway, now I've got the 7000 x64, but I haven't tried to install yet again yet because I also installed Windows XP Professional, and obviously it runs just fine on that.

But some day soon I'll install it again on my W7 system and see how that works out.

I have Win7 7000 actually. And it doesn't work for me. It'll load just fine. It'll run in the menu system (where you choose single or multiplayer or options) just fine. Once I enter the game though, and get a 3D representation of the world, it crashes after about 60 seconds.

FYI, you're wasting your time. NWN2, even if successfully installed, will not run on Win7 64Bit Build 7050 or later. I don't have a copy of build 7048 around to test, but referance this thread for details.

FYI Most things that don't run out of the box can be made to run.

In fact that thread you just linked to has the fix...

Anyone here running Vista that can upload a copy of dxdiagn.dll?

Build 7100

Hello guys,

I am looking on this forum about nwn2 and I must add some of my observations. As you can see from the title I tried and I am still trying to run nwn2 on Win7 build 7100 (64b). Well I thought that with new build it will be better, but it looks like there are no miracles currently. So as you wrote here before, nwn2 still dosen't work.

There's been a thread on this on the NWN2 forums. Apparently there will be a fix in build 7122 onwards, although that's of little help. However, if you go to the forum someone's posted a work-around using a file from Vista, which seems to work for everyone who has tried it

Neverwinter Nights: No 3D Card in Windows 7

The summary is near the bottom of page 4 of the thread, and includes a download link to the required file

Hope that helps - it worked fine for me

Edit: OK, I just read the posts further up and you need to be a member of he Bioware forums to see the fix - ok for legit game owners, but others may have a few problems.

I'm very suspicious of that, fix an OS because one game won't work on it? Also - what did they fix on 7122? It's a DX problem stopping NWN2 from running hence only DX needs fixing if it's not the game at fault.

I think it's a lot of nonsense tbh.

BSOD playing Neverwinter Nights
