      Hi
       
      I tried EDEE and PGIE on the Win 7 RC1. 
       
      EDEE would play quite well for a while (several hundred turns) and then die.  It would not crash it just sat there in a pause mode..  Units would not take orders and the game just stopped.  I was pushing it with a max sized map and several hundred (yep hundred AI) to force it along.  I tried this several times gradually reducing the number of AI opponents.  All this did was change how long it lasted before it froze.  Still played well and a lot of fun while it lasted. 
       
      However I did get another game with 4 or 5 AI (no human players) to run a max map to the end. I have not tried it on a production copy of Win 7 yet.
       
      I spoke to MOK and he felt it was probably easily fixed with a fresh compile under Win 7. 
       
      PGIE played perfectly under Win 7 (unlike me) I got murdered every time.
       
      Cheers

      I'm not sure.
       
      As for the old Empire Deluxe, I haven't been able to get it running on Windows 7 (it ran without DOSBox on XP).  I haven't tried in a few months though and DOSBox may have been updated in the meantime.

      I will be upgrading to Windows 7 in the near future. Does EDIE work on Windows 7? Thanks.
