    I've been running RMXP on Win7 since Win7 was released. No issues. Have you tried?

    Yes I have but every time I loaded up the program I got an error I would show you the error but i got that annoyed about it not working that I uninstalled it and deleted the files from my computer. -_-

    When I install it, I do it in this order:

    - extract downloaded file

    - go to install folder

    - run installer as administrator

    - install RTP

    - install RMXP

    - go to RMXP folder

    - view exe properties

    - set to run as administrator

    - set to run in XP Compatible mode
