Hi there,

Judging by the response in this thread, GP4 should run fine in Windows 7. There are some basic solutions posted there for minor issues, just in case. Let us know if you'd like any help getting it to run.

Cheers,

Well I installed GP4 and when selecting play it said " you must install directx 8.1 before running the game" I then selected " install directx 8.1" and got a message " directx has completed successfully". When again selecting play I get the original request to install directx 8.1
HELP please I so much want to play the game.

regards
