Can anyone confirm that NWN is running successfully on Windows 7, the Home Premium edition?

I can not confirm, nor deny that.

If 7 fails, just dual-boot. :P

I play NWN on Windows 7. If all else fails, compatibility mode works like a charm on most things - it's not finicky and annoying like Vista.

Nope. But I can confirm it works fine on Ultimate...

It's like Ravenclaws dating Slytherins.

Home Premium I don't think has the compatibility mode. So I guess I'm taking one for the team, I'll know later on tonight.

I probably should have added that I haven't needed compatibility on NWN in particular.

The box says there isn't an XP mode, yet... there is. I don't know if it's needed or not, but NWN is definately running in Windows 7 Home Premium. Have yet to try the toolset, but I suspect it will work fine too.

No confirmation possible, but 64-bit Ultimate works very well. No additional compatibility mode needed, as far as I can tell.

Using Home Premium, 64-bit and I cannot get it to run. Calan, what did -you- do? :P
