Win7Pro or whichever also has XP emulator, it should run without a problem under it I guess.

I recently bought UFO Afterlight for 5 bucks, and have tried everything to get it to run. I installed patch, tried compatibility settings, and no luck. Anyone got any suggestions to try?

Yes, I installed the 1.7 patch. I tried to run in Win7, Windows XP SP2, etc. I uninstalled and re-installed. The game crashes when I try to start it.
This is the crash report:

a few ideas that might help, in the order they occur to me :

1) XP SP3 might make a difference, i'm using XP Pro with SP3 (since my last reinstall of windows, lol) and had no real troubles

2) i think there's a "run in windowed mode" shortcut in the start menu folder, when i first tried AL i think i needed to use that

3) video drivers updated, and directX ?

4) video modes might be an issue, especially if your monitor is a 16 x 9 aspect ratio, not the 4 x 3 that the game is written for originally  (i know it can work, i have a fried that runs AL on a wide screen style monitor - if that's an issue, then i can ask him how his is configured

5) once in a while turning off other running programs in the task manager can let a troublesome program run

seems to me like a problem with this, are you installing with disk or downloading?
seems like a file corruption?
if it is and your re-installing from a corrupt disk it will never work

suggest going to a file site like www.gog.com it only costs a few quid/dollars.

http://www.gog.com/e.../ufo_afterlight

they do offers where you could buy all 3 for under $5 each
