Most versions of KQ7 were Windows games only. Version 2 of the game will run on XP with few problems. For earlier versions you have to use SIERRAW.EXE on the CD, not SIERRAWS.EXE, which is what the setup copies to the installed folder. Copy SIERRAW.EXE to your installed folder and right click on the shortcut in your Start Menu and choose “Properties” and change SIERRAWS.EXE to SIERRAW.EXE in the target box. Go to the “Compatibility” tab and set the game to run in 256 colors (and 640×480 Screen resolution, if you wish) and click OK. The game will now run in XP.
