(re: Kings Quest VII:Not Working)

Also, Unless you have the first released version of the game, you should have both a DOS and a Windows version on your CD. You might want to try both. In any case, trying Win95 compability mode is definately a good idea and you might also need to use VDMSound or some other tool if it’s the sound that’s bugging you.

And beware of speed-related problems. For instance, there’s a puzzle in the game that requires you to carry a lit firecracker. It’s supposed to give you a minute or two before it blows up, but on my relatively slow computer it does so after about a second! Still, since the game allows you to return to the point before you died and the time seems to reset itself if you do so, it should still be possible to play through that sequence. It’s just very annoying…
